Casemiro blow for struggling Manchester United

Manchester United midfielder Casemiro will miss “several weeks” due to the hamstring injury sustained against Newcastle in the EFL Cup.

The Brazil international was taken off at half-time in the 3-0 defeat on Wednesday night after an underwhelming showing before the break.

Casemiro also missed Sunday’s 3-0 defeat at home to Manchester City in the Premier League through injury and is now set for a longer spell on the sidelines.

A United statement read: “Casemiro will be out for several weeks due to a hamstring injury suffered during our Carabao Cup defeat to Newcastle United on Wednesday.

“The Brazilian midfielder was withdrawn at half-time due to the issue, and subsequent assessment has revealed a strain that will keep him out for a number of weeks.”
