Manchester United's 2-0 win away to Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League was the first three points for the team, having lost a controversial match against Real Sociedad at Old Trafford on their opening day. The Red Devils have won five games in their last six games.

Former Manchester United player Paul Scholes said he was delighted with Casemiro's performance. After the game he commented that he thought Casemiro was more of a "ball winner" after watching him play alongside Toni Kroos and Luka Modric for multiple seasons, and was surprised by his passing ability.

The game meant the team's last appearance in the month of September, the final international break will begin, which means the Dutch manager will have two weeks to see what will be best for the team's performance. The next month will be complicated, as they will play nine games in October, which is more than they have played in the previous two months.

Despite the good level that the Brazilian midfielder showed in some minutes of the match, it will be very complicated to get a place in Erik ten Hag's starting eleven. The main reason is that Christian Eriksen is playing every game, even without starting, and in addition to having a fantastic time, he has managed to raise the level of his Scottish teammate, Scott McTominay.

It won't be enough for Casemiro what he has managed to earn in his career, nor will it be enough that he came in for big money. In order to earn a starting place he will have to make the most of his minutes, adapt to a secondary role, and most likely with so many games in October, take advantage of some starts to show that he has the quality to secure a place in the starting line-up.
