Casemiro has been what Erik ten Hag likes to call “the cement between the stones”. Indeed, plenty of Manchester United fans were wondering after Sunday’s 3-2 defeat at Arsenal whether they might have come away with something had their Brazilian Mr Fix It not been suspended.

Lisandro Martinez, who scored his first United goal in that game, has been no less influential since arriving last summer and provided an invaluable injection of leadership, aggression and quality in defence.
