Casemiro facing four-game ban after second red card

Manchester United midfielder Casemiro is facing a four-game ban after receiving a straight red card during Sunday's goalless draw with Southampton.

The Brazilian was originally given a yellow card by referee Anthony Taylor for a first-half challenge on Southampton midfielder Carlos Alcaraz, but it was upgraded to a red after VAR Andre Marriner advised Taylor to watch the monitor

Casemiro was visibly upset as he left the Old Trafford pitch and now faces missing Man Utd's next four games as it is his second red card of the season, having been sent off against Crystal Palace earlier in the campaign.

Erik ten Hag's side face losing the 31-year-old for the following games:

  • Fulham (h) - March 19, FA Cup
  • Newcastle (a) - April 2, Premier League
  • Brentford (h) - April 5, Premier League
  • Everton (h) - April 8, Premier League

Casimero will next be available domestically for Manchester United on April 15 when they travel to Nottingham Forest in the Premier League. His ban does not include European matches so he will be available for Thursday's Europa League clash with Real Betis.
