Casemiro has just been sent off for Manchester United for the second time this season for a wreckless challenge against Southampton.
The Red Devils are currently hosting the Saints at Old Trafford in a must-win game for both sides.
Erik ten Hag’s side will want to bounce back after their humiliating 7-0 defeat to bitter rivals Liverpool last weekend.
But what looked like a routine win has turned into anything but after their Brazilian midfielder, Casemiro received a red card in the 34th minute.

This is the Brazilian’s second red card this season meaning that he will now have to serve a four-game ban before returning to action.
The former Real Madrid star has been a revelation since joining last summer and his ban will be crushing for the team as we near the end of the campaign.
