Casemiro has been sent off and suspended for three Premier League matches, including a double-header against old rivals Leeds.
When the two sides met last month, Casemiro was given a yellow card for a foul which saw him reach his limit. That resulted in a costly suspension for last month’s trip to Arsenal.
Casemiro got into the referee’s notebook again on Saturday afternoon when he was sent off appearing to choke Crystal Palace star Will Hughes.
According to Sky Sports, United’s run of 65 games without a red card has come to an end.

It was unnecessary for Casemiro to get involved in the brawl, never mind putting his two hands around an opponents neck.

He will miss the two games against Leeds as well as the home game against Leicester City.
Casemiro will return for the Carabao Cup final and he will be able to play against Barcelona in the Europa League.
Not much going their direction re refs.
Such a shame what happened to Christian Eriksen. That didn’t even give a card 🙁
