I can't see Man Utd beating Arsenal without Casemiro, he's going to be huge loss, says Gunners legend Paul Merson | The Sun

PAUL MERSON had suggested that Manchester United are not capable of beating Arsenal without Casemiro.

The Brazilian is suspended for the Premier League fixture at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.


The midfielder picked up his fifth yellow card of the season during the Red Devils' draw against Crystal Palace in mid-week.

The booking means that he has been ruled out for the clash against the league leaders.

And losing him for the match against Arsenal is a massive blow.

"Casemiro breaks up the play, I can not see Manchester United beating Arsenal without him.
