So far this season, Casemiro has missed eight games due to suspension. The former Real Madrid player has been sent off twice in the Premier League, which has contributed to him missing seven games.

He also missed Arsenal’s defeat in January after receiving his fifth yellow card in the Premier League. Casemiro’s latest suspension ended with United’s triumph over Everton on Saturday.

However, he may be gone again soon for Erik ten Hag. If he is selected to face Sevilla, he will miss the return leg in Spain the following Thursday.

Casemiro was booked twice in the play-off round against traditional El Clasico rivals Barcelona. A third yellow would result in a one-game suspension.

In the meantime, Bruno Fernandes is in the same situation as his teammate. He was shown a yellow card in both the second leg against Barcelona and the first leg of the last-16 encounter against Real Betis.

Both players would be significant losses for Ten Hag. The Dutchman will want as close to a full-strength group as possible for the April 20 trip to Sevilla.

This season, United has become accustomed to playing without Casemiro. The loss of Fernandes might be a bigger problem for the Red Devils.

This season, the Portugal international has been fairly constant, appearing in 47 games. Despite his inability to play recently, Casemiro has been working with the Manchester United team.

Ten Hag is hopeful that now that he is available again, he will be able to play a major role. “Of course, he is participating [in training], and especially for a player like Casemiro, that is not an advantage,” Ten Hag added.

“So, he requires a rhythm from training and games, which he lacks.” But, fortunately, he had a game for Brazil against Morocco, and we are fortunate to have played three games in one week, or six days, so he doesn’t miss too much.”
