WHAT HAPPENED? Manchester United suffered a huge blow in the first half of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Southampton. The Red Devils lost Casemiro to a red card for a studs-up tackle on Alcarez.
The Brazilian was initially booked for the tackle but the yellow card was upgraded to a red after a VAR review. The sending off is Casemiro’s second of the season which means he will be hit with a four-game ban.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The news will be a big blow to Erik ten Hag and United as Casemiro has become a key player for the Red Devils in his first season at the club. The Brazilian will now miss United’s next four games including the FA Cup quarter-final against Fulham and Premier League matches against Newcastle, Brentford and Everton after the international break.
