Manchester United fans made sure that Casemiro knew how much they love him, following the win over Chelsea, and he was living his best life.
When Casemiro arrived at Old Trafford at the end of last summer’s transfer window the club were rooted to the bottom of the Premier League.
Since then the Brazilian has been integral in everything that has gone right at the club, whether it be league victories or winning the Carabao Cup.
On Thursday night Erik ten Hag’s side had the chance to finally book their place in next season’s Champions League and once again Casemiro made a telling contribution.
The midfielder scored the opening goal and then helped set up the second, with United going on to win 4-1 and secure their place amongst Europe’s elite.
After the game fans were showing their appreciation to the former Real Madrid star by singing to him as he was one of the last player’s left celebrating with them, and he enjoyed every moment.
Casemiro absolutely loving it as the Utd fans chant his name! ❤️🇧🇷

Ten Hag was desperate to add to his midfield last year when he arrived in the north west but the 31-year-old was not his first choice signing.
United tried everything in their power to convince Frenkie de Jong to move from Barcelona to reunite with his former Ajax manager, but the Dutchman refused to go.
He did make it to Old Trafford during the Europa League and fans of the English side were hoping that he’d still end up moving there in the future.
Adrien Rabiot was also linked with a move from Juventus last summer but the Frenchman stayed in Italy before United ended up signing Casemiro.
Those two near misses have ended up helping Ten Hag no end, with the five times European champion fitting in so well with the team.
Gary Neville has been so impressed with the former Sao Paulo player’s impact on United that he named him the Premier League signing of the season.
Erling Haaland was excluded from the voting, which makes his decision more understandable, but fans still accused the Sky Sports pundit of bias.
He was also thanked by former Real teammate Vinicius Jr recently, after his fellow countryman stood up for the forward in the wake of the latest racist abuse from opposition fans.
