Arsenal legend Paul Merson has told Manchester United that they cannot beat Arsenal without midfielder Casemiro.
According to him, the best result the Red Devils would achieve without the Brazilian in the Emirates on Sunday would be a draw.
League leaders Arsenal host Erik ten Hag’s men at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, six points behind them.
Before facing Emirates later in the evening, Manchester City would have closed the gap on Mikel Arteta’s side by just two points by beating Wolverhampton on an early start.
Crystal Palace midfielder Casemiro was suspended midweek after a reckless tackle on Wilfried Zaha in the 1-1 draw.
Merson told Sky Sports: “Huh[Casemiro]huge for them.
“He would have taken care of Odegaard, Casemiro. I don’t see, I can’t see Man United beat Arsenal without Casemiro.
“They might get a draw. I don’t see it without Casemiro, he’s highly regarded by me. I don’t give Man United much chance tomorrow.”
