Every Manchester United game Casemiro will miss following red card vs Southampton

Manchester United hosted Southampton in a Premier League match on Sunday.

Manchester United kicked off vs the Saints looking to bounce back from their last league outing, which saw them ship seven to bitter rivals, Liverpool.

And after Tottenham beat Nottingham Forest on Sunday and with Newcastle yet to play this weekend, United’s spot in the top-four was looking more and more under threat.

As a result, Erik ten Hag will have wanted a big reaction from his side in the first 45 at Old Trafford.

However, the Dutchman and the fans got the exact opposite. The Red Devils struggled to carve out any real chances vs Southampton, despite having more of the possession.

And whilst they did not concede in the first 45, they were dealt a major blow. Casemiro was shown a straight red card after a VAR review following a dangerous tackle on Carlos Alcaraz.

This was the Brazilian’s second red card of the season in the Premier League, with the first coming against Crystal Palace on February 4. As a result, Casemiro will now be suspended for four games, which is a major blow for United who remain without the services of the injured Christian Eriksen.

Manchester United’s next game is a second-leg Europa League tie vs Real Betis on Thursday, which Casemiro can play in as it is a European match.

However, he will then miss an FA Cup tie vs Fulham and league outings vs Newcastle, Brentford and Everton.
