Soccer legend and former Arsenal player, Ian Wright, has blamed Manchester United’s Casemiro for their 3-1 loss to Aston Villa.
Aston Villa under new Manager, Unai Emery inflicted first loss on Manchester United in ten games.
Villa went 2-0 up in the first 11 minutes, and despite United pulling one back, Emery’s side restored their two-goal cushion to run out as 3-1 winners.
Wright accused Casemiro of negligence for Villa’s opening goal inside seven minute of the encounter.
According to Wright, if the opening goal was prevented, maybe Villa wouldn’t have scored more than than 1 or 2.
Casemiro played the entire 90 minutes, and Wright feels the Brazil midfielder could have done better for Villa’s opening goal on seven minutes.
“Ollie Watkins played very well, he ran himself into the ground today.
“Once it got to Leon Bailey on his left foot, it was going to be a problem.
“[Watkins] dragged Lindelof out of his position, I was thinking Casemiro has got to drop in there. It just looks too big, there was a massive space.
“You can see once the ball went in to Leon Bailey on his strong foot [he was going to score], it could have been avoided.
“They needed to have their wits about them there. I’m very surprised Casemiro didn’t see that,” Wright told Premier League Productions.
