Casemiro scored one goal and set up another as Manchester United began their League Cup defence with a 3-0 home win against Premier League rivals Crystal Palace in the third round on Tuesday at Old Trafford.
He was replaced by another Manchester United academy graduate, Sam Johnstone, who was picking the ball out of the goal two minutes later as Diogo Dalot cut back from the byline for Alejandro Garnacho to sweep in right-footed.
Brazilian midfielder Casemiro made it 2-0 in the 27th minute, rising in the area for a looping header into the far corner off Mason Mount’s swinging corner.
The game was the night’s lone meeting between two top-flight clubs, and they will face again in the league at Old Trafford on Saturday.
