Team News

There are several bad news for Man United’s fans. During the match against Crystal Palace, Casemiro was sent off due to violent conduct. As a result, he can’t play Man United’s next three games in PL. Besides, Manchester United will not appeal for Casemiro’s red card, according to the manager.

Ten Hag believes the decision against Casemiro was not the right decision. Ten Hag said, “Still, for me, it’s not the right decision [to send Casemiro off] but I don’t think we have a chance in a legal process.”

Anyway, Manchester United will miss several key players ahead of tomorrow’s clash. Anthony Martial, Eriksen, Donny Van de Beek, Scott McTominay, Antony, and Phill Jones are unavailable due to injuries.

Ten Hag said, “After the game, I can’t say Casemiro is not there, Anthony Martial is not there. No, we have to win. This squad, all players in [it], are Man United capable, so they have to perform tomorrow and we have to win the games, no matter who is coming on the pitch.”
