De Gea admits suspended teammate hands Arsenal a boost

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea admits the absence of Casemiro when they face Arsenal in their next Premier League game is a big blow.

The Brazilian picked up a booking in his last game for the Red Devils, which effectively rules him out of the game against the Gunners this weekend.

The importance of the former Real Madrid man cannot be overstated, as his arrival is one reason they have been in tremendous form.

Now he misses the game just when fans have started comparing his impact to that of Thomas Partey at Arsenal. Commenting on the situation, De Gea said via The Daily Mail:

‘It’s a big blow to lose Casemiro for Sunday.

‘I don’t get why Arsenal don’t play as we have to play in the same week and they don’t. Now we are missing one of our best players.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Casemiro has been arguably the best player at United in recent weeks and their defence needs his presence to feel safe.

This is a huge boost for Arsenal because our creative midfielders will now likely get joy when they attack the Red Devils in the match.

Nevertheless, we have to avoid being overly confident and complacent in the fixture.

  1. With Fred and Mctominay they still did a good job in the reverse fixture. We’ll just need to be at our best again. It was always gonna be a difficult game with or without him.

  2. He’s a class act so will be a big bonus for us ,I cannot see us coming away with less than a point though and would have said the same with him playing .

  3. Said it on another thread, Casemiro is Important to Man United as Partey is to Arsenal.

    Massive boost to London top dog, we should win this one after much fire works, wish I was there among the faithfuls to get a first hand account of this one.

    Just hope one great faithful will be kind to share a graphical description of how this one unfolds.

  4. MU are still a dangerous side without Casemiro and it is actually possible to overstate his importance to their team.
    Their overall play is not great but they are still a useful counterattacking outfit and difficult to break down.
    We will still be favourites but not by much.
