Why Manchester United’s Casemiro could face yet another suspension this season

Casemiro could be facing more time on the sidelines this season.


When playing, Casemiro has shown this season that he is still a top-quality defensive midfielder.

The Brazilian has filled a major hole in Manchester United’s midfield that has been apparent for many years.

However, Casemiro has spent a loft of 2022/23 out due to suspension.

Casemiro’s first suspension came at the end of January for picking up five yellow cards in the Premier League.

He missed a 3-2 loss vs Arsenal because of that. Then, in his return to action, he was shown a red card vs Crystal Palace, keeping him out for another three games.

The Brazilian returned in the 7-0 loss to Liverpool and then started the following match vs Southampton where he was once again shown a red card, keeping him out of action for four games.

Casemiro has served that ban and is due to return for United later this week when the Reds take on Sevilla in the Europa League.

However, the Brazilian will miss the second leg of the Europa League quarter-final against Sevilla if he gets booked in the first match at Old Trafford on Thursday.
