WHAT HAPPENED? Casemiro drew his fifth yellow card of the campaign after taking down Wilfried Zaha in the second half of Wednesday's match against Crystal Palace with Manchester United ahead 1-0. Crystal Palace equalised shortly after the costly booking and the match finished level.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: An irreplaceable ball-winner in the Red Devils' midfield, Casemiro's absence will be difficult to overcome in an already challenging fixture at the Emirates Stadium. Scott McTominay may be in line to come into the starting line-up in place of the Brazilian.
