According to GiveMeSport, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is considering benching veteran midfielder Casemiro in the Manchester derby this weekend.

The Brazilian has been a mainstay in the United starting XI since he joined the club last summer.

However, he has struggled to make an impact in games this season, which has led to calls for him to be dropped.

Scott McTominay and Sofyan Amrabat both started in the 2-1 win over Sheffield United, and they might likely keep their places when we face Manchester City at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Casemiro will not be part of the team to face FC Copenhagen in the Champions League due to suspension.
