Fans began referring to CASEMIRO’s pass as “illegal” since it was crucial to United’s second goal against Chelsea.
Against the visiting Blues, the Brazilian midfield general had already scored the opening goal.
But right before the halftime, he was involved once more when he picked up the ball on the outskirts of the box.
Casemiro then used a no-look pass to chip the ball through over the defensive line and into the path of Jadon Sancho while being free of pressure from the Chelsea defenders.
Sancho then squared a pass to Anthony Martial after a quick touch.
The Frenchman then put the ball in the goal to give the Red Devils a double-digit lead.
Fans were left drooling over Casemiro’s pass on Twitter.
“That Casemiro pass should be illegal,” one fan exclaimed.
A second person chimed in, “That pass by @Casemiro was illegal in at least 50 nations eiiiii.”
“That Casemiro pass should be illegal,” said a third.
Another said, “Casemiro is Elite today!”
“He’s well too good for us, why is our CDM carrying the team up front?” said another.
Erik ten Hag, however, is now concerned about the health of Antony and Luke Shaw after they both departed the game during the first half and halftime, respectively.
