Manchester United midfielder Casemiro was sent off in the first-half of Manchester United’s goalless draw against Southampton at Old Trafford for a tackle on Southampton attacker Charly Alcaraz.

The red card is Casemiro’s second since joining Manchester from Real Madrid last summer and he is now suspended for Manchester United’s next four domestic games.

Reacting to Casemiro’s red card, Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag told Sky Sports: “Casemiro played over 500 games in Europe and never once got a red card. Now he has two in the Premier League.

“His absence is not the issue. We will deal with that. This game was influenced by the referee.”
