When asked about Casemiro getting sent off against Crystal Palace, Erik ten Hag said: “Casemiro crossed the line; you saw that.
“However, I’m unhappy with the inconsistent refereeing; not only this game but also in Palace. They elbowed Martínez and last week with Eriksen.
“I see TWO teams fighting each I see TWO teams of players crossing the line and one player gets picked out, sent off, and that’s not right.
“The player from Crystal Palace started this, he took a big risk by injuring Antony.

“A lot of other players crossed the line, including some Crystal Palace players. VAR didn’t intervene with them.”
Ten Hag makes a valid point here, as the Palace players were hardly given strict punishment despite seemingly being the ones to trigger the brawl that led to Casemiro’s sending off.
The Brazilian will now miss the next three Premier League games, including those against Leeds United and Leicester City.
