Man United manager Erik ten Hag gives update on Casemiro’s three-game ban appeal following altercation with Will Hughes
Manchester United are ruthless and have dominated for a long period after winning thirteen straight games at home but are now having a difficult time maneuvering after Casemiro saw red following a breakout against Crystal Palace.

The chaos happened during Palace’s visit to Old Trafford after Antony was involved in a fight with Schulpp and things have since gotten uglier as team-mates have had to intervene between the two.
However, the incident between Brazilian Casemiro and Palace’s Will Highes required VAR support, where Casemiro grabbed Hughes by the neck and threw him to the ground, leaving referee Andre Marriner with no choice but to show the former Real Madrid champion a marching order.

Asked if United would consider an appeal in the days after the red card, Ten Hag replied: “Consider, yes. Still, it’s not the right decision for me, but I don’t think we stand a chance in a court case.”
“I always have to play with the players that are available and we have a squad, we have a lot of good players in our squad who don’t play in the starting XI either and I have to do it. After one game, I can’t say that Casemiro isn’t there.” – added Ten Hag.

This was the first direct red card Casemiro received of his entire career and considering the importance he has in the team’s success, Man Utd has certainly missed the service of ‘The Tank’.
Casemiro will miss the double header Premier League clash against Leeds and also stayed in the stands for the Leicester game, which will come after the Europa League clash with Barcelona, where the five-time UCL winners will be eligible to play.

Christian Eriksen’s injury and now a Panzer suspension has certainly left a hole in Man Utd’s midfield, with Fred, Sabitzer and McTominay looking to fill the void left by the veterans.
Manchester United are back in the driver’s seat after Erik Ten Hag stabilized the ship for them and the Red Devils will aim high and promise to deliver what Man Utd fans have been looking for for years: trophies.
