Manchester United suffered two blows on Wednesday night against Crystal Palace. The first was Michael Olise’s late free-kick, with the 21-year-old curling home an equaliser to prevent Erik ten Hag’s side from claiming all three points. And a second was Casemiro’s fifth booking of the campaign which now means he’ll miss Sunday’s crunch Premier League showdown with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
But that gamble failed to pick off, with the veteran picking up a suspension following a bruising tackle on Wilfried Zaha in the second half.
Now, United will have to do without Casemiro for Sunday’s crunch clash against Arsenal. It’s a blow for the Red Devils, especially given the sheer magnitude of the contest in the capital.
Many believe Scott McTominay or Fred will come into the team. Both players are options for Ten Hag, who was seen shaking his head in the aftermath of his midfielder’s antics.
