Casemiro and Fred at risk of missing Manchester United’s clash with Arsenal

January 16, 2023

Both stars played important roles in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Manchester City but could potentially sit out the bout at the Emirates this weekend…

Erik ten Hag will want Casemiro and Fred to be on their best behaviour in Manchester United’s clash against Crystal Palace on Wednesday or they risk missing Sunday’s big clash with table-toppers Arsenal.

Casemiro has been one of the club’s best players since his arrival in the summer and has been an integral part of their success this season. As well as his acclaimed defensive work, the linchpin has also chipped in with two goals and four assists of his own.

Fred, meanwhile, has largely been used as a rotation player by Ten Hag, starting just nine of his 23 matches all season, of which five have come in the Premier League. However, he was named in a league line-up for the first time since October against Manchester City on Saturday.
