Fred and Casemiro at Risk of Suspension for Man UTD vs. Arsenal Fixture


There are now two midfielders from Manchester United who are in danger of being suspended for the match against Arsenal. The team news from United confirms that a yellow card for either Casemiro or Fred against Crystal Palace is going to cause a one-game suspension.

Manchester United visited Crystal Palace on Wednesday and followed up with a top-of-the-table game with Arsenal, the leaders on Sunday. The game with Crystal Palace will be Man UTD’s Premier League game of this season. After this, the yellow cards are going to be reset. Casemiro, as well as Fred has received 4 yellow cards. A fifth might lead to a suspension and can cause them to miss a game at The Emirates.

The loss of Casemiro, though, is going to be a bigger blow for the team, for sure. The former midfielder of Real Madrid has been a titan in midfield for Man United since he joined the club. Man United has defeated Old Trafford with Christian Eriksen and Scott McTominay but this can make the trip even tougher. Manchester United has gotten used to being with Casemiro. So, losing him can be a big blow.

The simple solution is to leave the player out of the match against Crystal Palace. He can do with the rest and Scott McTominay can do with the game time without a start in the league. Previously, Casemiro suffered the blow of suspension, which caused him to miss the quarter-final of the World Cup in 2019 against Belgium that they lost. Even last season, he had been suspended for the Champions League for Real Madrid’s second leg against PSG which they won.

The match with Manchester United with Crystal Palace had recently been rearranged, pushed from September.
