Manchester United started the season with a narrow 1-0 win against Wolves on a Monday Night Football match. However, they suffered a setback over the weekend, losing 2-0 to Tottenham. Carragher explained that Mason Mount, a teammate of Casemiro, was positioned deeper in the match against Tottenham to provide support. However, Carragher criticized the manager’s use of a man-marking system, which left Casemiro exposed and struggling to defend. He noted that this vulnerability allowed opponents like James Maddison to easily bypass Casemiro and reach Manchester United’s defensive line.

Carragher emphasized instances where Casemiro’s attempts at tackling opponents appeared lackluster. He pointed out that Casemiro often made rash decisions to tackle opponents, leaving him vulnerable to being easily bypassed. Carragher criticized this approach, highlighting that it’s not acceptable for a player of Casemiro’s caliber and experience. Carragher highlighted the statistic that Casemiro had been dribbled past six times already in the season, which was much higher than peers like Rodri and Yves Bissouma.

Carragher also noted that Mason Mount and Bruno Fernandes, two other Manchester United players, had similar issues with opponents bypassing them. This trend raised concerns about the team’s overall defensive capability.

Carragher concluded that the combination of factors, including Casemiro’s struggles and the overall vulnerability in the midfield, could hinder Manchester United’s success for the rest of the season. He expressed doubt about the effectiveness of the current midfield setup in achieving the team’s goals.
