Manchester United midfielder Casemiro will be suspended for his side’s Super Sunday clash with Premier League leaders Arsenal this weekend.
If you remember earlier before the match, the insight media Sport Arena reported that, Manchester united fans warn the manager to rest Casemiro to avoid him booking so that he can featured against Arsenal because he was already on the fourth yellow card
The Brazilian midfielder picked up a yellow card with ten minutes to go of United’s 1-1 draw away at Crystal Palace – his fifth booking of the campaign which results in a one-match suspension.
Casemiro stopped Wilfried Zaha on the counterattack to concede a free-kick and protect United’s 1-0 lead at Selhurst Park.
But Michael Olise’s stunning free-kick in stoppage time means United have lost two points in their bid to chase down Arsenal at the top, as well as the availability of one of their key midfielders for the Emirates Stadium clash this weekend.
Reacting to Casemiro’s booking, United manager Erik ten Hag told Sky Sports: “I think it’s instinctive, he went for the ball.
“He missed the ball but it’s quite clear, on our right side, it could have been a dangerous situation. He wants to stop it. That was his reaction, it was quite clear.
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag claims that failing to score a second goal to kill off the game against Crystal Palace is the most disappointing aspect of the 1-1 draw in the Premier League.
“Last time we beat Arsenal without Casemiro, so this time we have to do the same.”
Ten Hag’s side are eight points behind the Gunners going into the weekend, giving second-placed Manchester City the opportunity to pull three points clear of their neighbours when they host Tottenham on Thursday night
Casemiro has been a key figure in Ten Hag’s plans this season, playing every single minute of football in United’s last nine Premier League games.
Wednesday night’s draw at Palace denied United the chance to win a tenth match in a row.
