Premier League

Casemiro and Fred likely to MISS the Clash with Arsenal if booked in Palace Match

Casemiro and Fred, two aggressive midfielders, risk being BANNED from the weekend trip to Arsenal if they receive a booking against the Eagles. Wednesday's match between United and Selhurst Park will be played there, and Ten Hag will be counting on the Brazilian team to behave themselves.

They both received a warning during the comeback triumph in the Manchester derby, with Casemiro assisting Bruno Fernandes' contentious opening kick. Both are already on four yellow cards for the season, though. According to Premier League rules, players who receive five yellow cards in the first 19 games of the season will be given a one-game suspension.

There have been 18 league games for United. If Casemiro and Fred fail to avoid being booked by the referee against Palace, they will be suspended. Both players were essential versus City, but Casemiro in particular has been a game-changing presence ever since. In fact, after the 4-0 thrashing at Brentford earlier this season, Casemiro instructed his agent to inform United's management that "I'll rectify this."
