Arsenal has been forewarned by Erik ten Hag that Manchester United will defeat them whether or not Casemiro, their talisman from Brazil, is present.
Casemiro had his fifth caution of the year against Crystal Palace on Wednesday, which prevents him from traveling to Arsenal on Sunday.
Since joining Manchester United from Real Madrid in the summer, the Brazilian is regarded as the team’s best player.
Wednesday’s match between Manchester United and Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park ended in a 1-1 draw. The bad news is that Casemiro received a yellow card with 10 minutes remaining for a high lunge on Wilfried Zaha.
Bruno Fernandes gave Manchester the lead in the first half, but Patrick Vieira’s team rallied back and earned themselves a point with a free kick from Michael Olise in the second.
“It was instinctive, he went for the ball, missed it, and it was a dangerous situation.
“He wanted to stop it and that was his reaction, quite clear,” Ten Hag told Sky Sports.
“Last time we beat Arsenal without Casemiro, now this time, we have to do the same.
