Casemiro will be suspended for Man Utd vs Arsenal after picking up yellow card against Crystal Palace


Casemiro will play no part in Manchester United’s meeting with table-toppers Arsenal on Sunday after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Crystal Palace.

Premier League rules state a player who picks up five yellow cards in their club’s first 19 matches will be suspended for one game. United’s 1-1 draw with Palace on Wednesday evening was their 19th league match of the season.

The five-card threshold is raised to 10 beyond this milestone, with the punishment stretching to a two-game ban within a team’s first 32 matches.

But that comes as no consolation to Erik ten Hag who will have to travel to the Emirates on Sunday without one of his best playersCasemiro brought down the on-rushing Wilfried Zaha nine minutes from time to go into the notebook, with both the player and Ten Hag clearly aware of the repercussions.

It turned out to be an agonising end to the game for the visitors who conceded a thunderous free-kick from Michael Olise seconds into added time.
