Victor Lindelof has lavished praise on Casemiro and Marcus Rashford for their contribution at Manchester United this season.
Casemiro is regarded as the signing of the season at the club and he delivered another superb performance in the 4-1 victory against Chelsea in the Premier League on Thursday night, which sealed a return to the Champions League.
The Brazilian scored the opening goal in the game and Rashford, who started on the bench, also got on the scoresheet, meaning he became the first United player since Robin van Persie in 2012/13 to reach to 30-goal mark in a season.

Both players have been instrumental in the Reds' impressive change of fortunes this term and Lindelof, speaking after the emphatic win against Chelsea, made sure to praise the pair for their respective contributions.
"He's (Casemiro's) a fantastic player, he's got a great mentality and he's a top professional," Lindelof told MUTV. "He can control a game great for us, with or without the ball, so he's been massive for us this season.
"I'm also very happy for him [Rashford], he's been great this season. For him to score that many goals is just great and I think he can just keep on going and hopefully he can continue that until the end of the campaign.
"That [Old Trafford being a fortress] is amazing and it's always such a pleasure to play at home. To have the fans behind us all the time, we've always wanted to make it our fortress and I think we've done that this season."
