A stunning compilation of Casemiro's cameo against Leicester City shows how classy of a player he is.

Casemiro starred in Manchester United's 1-0 victory over Leicester on Thursday.

That's despite playing just 31 minutes after replacing Anthony Elanga before the hour mark.

Casemiro made his second appearance for his new side at the King Power Stadium and showed what he brings to Erik ten Hag's team.

The 30-year-old was calm, composed and extremely efficient on the ball - playing nice passes in the middle of the park as well as spraying first-time passes to switch play.

Naturally, he showed off his defensive attributes as he broke up Leicester's attacks and won possession back.

Casemiro also linked up brilliantly with Christian Eriksen, with his individual highlights making for impressive viewing.

The Brazilian has made two substitute outings since his £60 million move from Real Madrid this summer.

But he could start against Arsenal on Sunday following his impressive performance against Leicester, with Ten Hag explaining his decision to bench the club's new star.

"Of course, it was an option [Casemiro], a really good option," the Dutchman told MUTV.

"But the last two games, we've played quite well and so I want to give them a chance for this game as well. It doesn't say nothing for the future, we will bring players in.

"We have many games, so we will rotate. A difficult start [Leicester's], they are tough opponents, but they play well and they in many games I think they deserved a result.

"After today, they can get it. We have to go from game to game and keep going."

The Red Devils have won three league games in a row since their crushing defeat at Brentford.

They've beaten Liverpool, Southampton and Leicester as Ten Hag's charges resume their campaign against league leaders Arsenal.
