Manchester United’s Casemiro was sent off after a scuffle with Crystal Palace’s Will Hughes in which he appeared to put his hands around Hughes’ neck.
The incident occurred during a match that United won 2-1. The referee, Andre Marriner, reviewed the incident via VAR before showing Casemiro the red card.
Despite the clear evidence of misconduct, some United fans felt that the decision was harsh. Some fans argued that the red card was unjustified and should have only been a yellow card.
Others claimed that the action was not intentional, but simply a way of stopping the fight. Some fans even commented that the decision was “absolutely shocking” and “laughable.”
