David De Gea has questioned the Premier League over their scheduling after Casemiro picked up a suspension.

David De Gea has posed a question to the Premier League after Casemiro’s costly yellow card on Wednesday night.

Manchester United’s winning run came to a bitter end at Selhurst park on Wednesday evening, drawing with Crystal Palace after Michael Olise’s superb late free-kick. The Red Devils had led through Bruno Fernandes, but Olise’s unstoppable free-kick spoiled the first of two clashes in London for Erik ten Hag’s men this week.

On Sunday, United take on leaders Arsenal as they look to make up ground in the title race, but they will head to the Emirates Stadium without star midfielder Casemiro, who picked up a yellow card against Palace. The yellow card meant the former Real Madrid star reached five yellow cards for the season, triggering a one-match suspension.

The loss of Casemiro is a huge one for United, and speaking after the game, goalkeeper De Gea questioned why Arsenal did not have to play mid-week, given they have now played a game less than the Red Devils.

“It’s a big blow to lose Casemiro for Sunday,” he said. “I don’t get why Arsenal don’t play as we have to play in the same week and they don’t. Now we are missing one of our best players.”

Speaking about the late equaliser and the draw at Selhurst Park, De Gea added: “It’s football. Sometimes you score at the end and sometimes they score at the end. Let’s keep going. I think we’re doing really well and it’s a massive game on Sunday. I think we’re a much better team than we were before. We are competing really well, deserving the points, playing as a team, which is massive. Everyone wants to win, everyone wants to fight for the team.

“It’s nice to watch and it was a bit sad today because we concede at the end but I still believe in this team. I think we have great players, we all want to win, so let’s keep going.”
