Injury problems prevented Casemiro from playing in Manchester United’s last two matches. This weekend, the Red Devils will meet neighbor Manchester City in the Premier League. In front of the media, coach Erik ten Hag expects Casemiro to reappear in time, but that possibility is unlikely, quoted from ESPN:
“Casemiro must race against time. He is not at 100% physical strength.”
Man Utd enter the match against Man City after three consecutive wins, although question marks remain about their performance. Ten Hag was critical of the first half performance against Copenhagen but he insisted his team are improving:
“We are moving in the right direction and I see the positive side. Meeting Man City is a great battle because it is internal to Manchester and is also an encounter that attracts the attention of the whole world. All eyes around the world will fall.” focused on this match.”
Sofyan Amrabat, Christian Eriksen or Scott McTominay are options in the midfield if Casemiro is absent. Mason Mount can also be pulled down deeper than usual.
