Christian Eriksen has finally revealed the Manchester United teammate that he loves playing with.

However, it is his midfield partnership with Casemiro that is seemingly exciting him the most.

Speaking ahead of Man United's Europa League clash against Sheriff, Eriksen divulged that he is relishing playing with the former Real Madrid anchorman.

"I think you can see in the games – we like playing together," Eriksen said via Metro UK.
"Of course, we’re still getting to know one and other on and off the pitch, but he’s a nice guy off the pitch as well. So I’m not surprised he can cope. It’s lovely to play with him," he added.

Casemiro has proven his worth

While Casemiro had a rather slow start to life in the Premier League, he has since shown glimpses of adaptation.

The midfielder, who joined United in a £70million deal, has emerged as one of the most vital squad players for ten Hag in recent weeks.

So far, the greatest highlight of his Man United career came on Saturday when he netted his first goal for the Red Devils against Chelsea.

The Brazilian's stoppage-time goal cancelled out Jorginho's earlier opener from the penalty spot, helping the Old Trafford dwellers secure a crucial point away from home.

Casemiro's goal should not have stood

Sports Brief has reported that a section of Chelsea fans has claimed that Casemiro's equaliser for Manchester United during their clash at Stamford Bridge should not have been allowed to stand.

The two English giants settled for a 1-1 draw during the Saturday evening clash, with Casemiro earning United a vital point at stoppage time.

Both teams played out a goalless draw in the first half, before Jorginho broke the deadlock in the 87th minute from the penalty spot.
