Manchester United started with a very complicated season, as they lost two games at the beginning of the season, coming from the problem with Cristiano, one of those defeats was a 0-4 against Brentford, many stories were made in the media about the dressing room of the Red Devils.


From that occasion it was decided to support the Dutch manager, Erik ten Hag, as much as possible, bringing in very important pieces for the team's performance. After that second defeat, it was decided to sign Brazilians Casemiro and Antony for £150 million. Two players of different conditions to strengthen the team.

Since then, and not necessarily because of the aforementioned signings, the team started a good run, they have won four Premier League games in a row, including against opponents they beat like Liverpool, or the team that took away their unbeaten record, Arsenal. It certainly changed the attitude within the team, a temperamental coach for this situation.


Since then Casemiro has only seen one start in a month, the cause being the adaptation of Danish midfielder, Christian Eriksen, who has been one of ten Hag's most played players. In addition, the Dane's midfield partner has been Scotland's Scott McTominay, who has looked to form a great connection with Eriksen, but Casemiro is ready to show why he was paid so much for his signature.
