Manchester United midfielder, Casemiro seems to have some jinx on him at Crystal Palace.
It was at Crystal Palace that he got a yellow card which got him banned a few weeks ago.
Now Casemiro got a straight red card after grabbing the throat of Will Hughes of Crystal Palace in today’s game. The Brazilian midfielder lost his head when he should have done better.
Goals from Bruno Fernandez and Marcus Rashford had sent Manchester United cruising to victory in the game at Old Trafford.
Everything unraveled in the 66th minute with an incident involving Crytal Palace’s Jefrey Schlupp and Manchester United’s Antony.
Casemiro then jumped in the fray and grabbed the throat of Will Hughes leading to a mass melee on the pitch. VAR spotted the incident and Casemiro was shown a straight red.
Jeffrey Schlup pulled a goal back for Crystal Palace and Manchester United had to fight for their lives after then.
Manchester United successfully soaked up the pressure to win the game 2-1 and move within eight points of the league leaders, Arsenal.
