Casemiro injury update

Saturday 24 February 2024 18:19

Casemiro will be assessed after a clash of heads with Harrison Reed in the early stages of the second half during Manchester United's 2-1 defeat to Fulham.

The Brazil international received extensive treatment on the pitch before being escorted down the tunnel by head of sports medicine Gary O'Driscoll, clearly in some discomfort after the collision.

It was another blow for the Reds, who were without Luke Shaw and Rasmus Hojlund, after they joined the list of absentees this week.

Ten Hag: We let it slip away

Erik ten Hag gives his thoughts on our defeat to Fulham in M16...

"I don't know if it's concussion but it's definitely head to head," Erik ten Hag said during his post-match interviews at Old Trafford.

"I actually don't know [the issue] but he had to come off. He had to come off so we have to speak with the doctor, and the medical team, to see how he's doing.

"He couldn't continue the game. We have all seen that. We had to take him off and, hopefully, he's better by tomorrow."

United's next match is on Wednesday night, with Nottingham Forest providing the opposition in the Emirates FA Cup fifth round.

Following the City Ground tie, our next Premier League assignment is the Manchester derby against City on Sunday 3 March.
