Manchester United are over-reliant on Casemiro and struggle to get results when he’s ‘not at the races’ like against Liverpool on Sunday, according to Jamie Carragher.

Casemiro has been Manchester United’s best player this season but the midfielder was far from his usual level as Manchester United lost 7-0 at Liverpool on Sunday.

“Casemiro has been one of the best players in the league this season, but he was very very poor on Sunday,” Carragher said.

“You could see he wasn’t at the races. A player of his class shouldn’t give the ball away the way he did.

“He was supposed to look after Harvey Elliott, but he made it too easy for him. The second goal is the killer for United. Casemiro couldn’t get near anyone, he’s fallen over twice.

“To quote Gary Neville, it was scabby. It was his worst game for passing, he didn’t win one tackle. This is away at Liverpool.

“It shows how important he is to Manchester United. They lose to Man City without him, he’s not at the races at Anfield and they concede seven.”
