winger failed to live up to his promise after vowing to ‘win the game’ for after his red card against Southampton.

Casemiro was sent off in the 34th minute after a VAR review deemed his challenge on Carlos Alvaraz.

It was the Brazilian’s second sending off of the season, meaning he will miss United’s next four matches.

Casemiro was visibly distraught after the decision, realising that he’d let his team-mates down by leaving them to battle on with ten men for 56 minutes plus added time.

The former Real Madrid ace was comforted by Lisandro Martinez and Antony after the red card was brandished.

Antony was seen grabbing Casemiro and speaking to him before he left the field and it’s since emerged that the winger told Casemiro; ‘I will win this game for you. I will.’

The former Ajax winger was on a high after his fantastic goal against Real Betis on Thursday but he was unable to come good on his promise as United drew 0-0 with the Saints.

Antony was removed 15 minutes before full-time, with Alejandro Garnacho entering the fray.

United came close to finding a winner through Bruno Fernandes but his effort was tipped onto the post.

The visitors had plenty of chances of their own, with James Ward-Prowse and Kyle Walker-Peters both hitting the woodwork during an entertaining 0-0 draw.
