Manchester United fans have voted on their man of the match following the 1-0 win over Bournemouth at the Vitality.

The win was huge and helps United to move themselves within a point of securing Champions League football.

The goalscorer in the game was Casemiro with an acrobatic finish in the 9th minute.

He was found by Christian Eriksen with a delightful over the top ball, before he overhead kicked it into the roof of the net.

Following the goal however United looked unlikely to ever add to their lead.

The performance however will come secondary to what the win means, with Champions League qualification just one point away.

A point from two games at home surely top four is wrapped up.

Bruno Fernandes: 9%

Other players were below 5%.

Casemiro’s goal won the game, as he also dictated play having 93 touches along with an 80% pass completion rate.

Defensively he was also very solid, keeping Bournemouth from equalising with nine duels won, along with five tackles.

Casemiro has returned to his best after a few weeks of below par performances.

His form comes back at a key time, ahead of the FA Cup semi-final and the final week of the Premier League.
