David De Gea furious over suspended Casemiro missing Arsenal clash
David De Gea fumes over suspended Casemiro missing Arsenal clash and slams Premier League fixture schedule.
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has been left frustrated by the Red Devil’s fixture schedule following Casemiro’s suspension.
On Sunday, the Red Devils play Arsenal in a crucial top-of-the-table matchup.
But they will be without midfield lynchpin Casemiro after he picked up his fifth yellow card of the season in Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace.
United are now eight points behind Arsenal and will be without one of their most important players for the trip to The Emirates.
That has annoyed De Gea, who took aim at the Premier League by questioning why United had to play mid-week.

He told Sky Sports: “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 & they don’t.
That would have given the Red Devils a chance to go up 2-0 and put the game away.
It is even possible Casemiro would not have got booked if that happened, as he may not have desperately lunged in to win the ball in order to protect such a slender 1-0 lead.
