Manchester United could turn to Erik ten Hag protégé to solve obvious midfield problem

If Manchester United weren’t already aware of just how good Casemiro is, they are now.

His absence during Sunday’s 3-2 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium was as obvious as it was painful. United sorely lacked his defensive presence in midfield, his bite, his tidiness on the ball, his excellent passing range and his energy.

It was a compelling advert to show just how big an impact he has had at Old Trafford since his £60million arrival from Real Madrid. As soon as his fifth yellow card of the season was whipped out of referee Robert Jones’ pocket against Crystal Palace last Wednesday night, United’s supporters shared a collective sigh and probably the odd expletive or two. That is how important he is.
