After the Ghanaian midfielder was likened to their Brazil international, the Red Devils’ supporters voiced their disgust.
Thomas Partey, an Arsenal midfielder, has been essential to the Gunners’ successful run in the current Premier League season.
In anticipation of Thursday’s Manchester City-Chelsea match result, the Mikel Arteta-led club drew 0-0 with Newcastle United on Tuesday night to establish an eight-point lead at the top of the table. Partey, who has appeared in 14 of the team’s 17 games, has been essential for the North Londoners.
Casemiro, who moved to Manchester United from Real Madrid in the summer, has adjusted to life in the top flight of English football, contributing to two goals and one assist in his first 14 games.
The Erik Ten Hag team is a fringe candidate for the Premier League championship and is aiming for Champions League play.
Both Partey and Casemiro have been significant players for their sides, but Manchester United supporters believe it is unfair to draw comparisons between the Black Star and the Brazil international.
