Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, has blamed Manchester United’s Casemiro for their 3-1 defeat at Aston Villa.
Unitedâs nine-game unbeaten run under Erik ten Hag ended on Sunday as new Villa boss Unai Emery got off to the perfect start on his return to England.
Villa went 2-0 up in the first 11 minutes, and despite United pulling one back, Emeryâs side restored their two-goal cushion to run out as 3-1 winners.
Casemiro played the entire 90 minutes, and Wright feels the Brazil midfielder could have done better for Villaâs 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. Iâm very surprised Casemiro didnât see that,” Wright told Premier League Productions.
