De Gea furious at Premier League over ‘unfair’ move to United ahead of derby

Manchester United played a draw last night at Crystal Palace (1:1).

Although by the end United had a minimal advantage and victory was in sight, with a perfectly executed free kick, the hosts reached a draw in the 92nd minute.

It was a draw that felt like a defeat for United fans, as they were the better team overall, but in the end they had to be satisfied with a point.

But what upset them was the decision of the Premier League, De Gea pointed out that it was wrong for them to play the backlog four days before the derby against Arsenal in London. For that match, United will not have Casemiro, due to yellow cards.

“One of our best players will be absent. I don’t understand the decision of the Premier League why we had to play the game behind now and Arsenal didn’t have to. It could make a difference in the derby on Sunday, I don’t understand their decision. The loss of Casemiro is a big blow for us,” De Gea said.
