Casemiro Identifies Three Premier League Clubs Posing Threat to Man Utd’s Dominance

Casemiro acknowledges that Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester City’s long-term strategies pose a threat that Manchester United must overcome in order to be successful.

The Red Devils have not dominated the English Premier League since 2013, and they must defeat a number of rivals in order to reclaim the top spot.

The club’s current trophy drought dates back to the Jose Mourinho era, but Erik ten Hag has shown encouraging signs.

United are currently in third place, behind title contenders City and Arsenal, but comfortably ahead of Liverpool, who are having a poor season but are expected to be competitive soon. 

Since 2018, Liverpool and Manchester City have shared the league title, while Arsenal appear poised to crash the party.

Casemiro’s arrival at Old Trafford has been essential to Manchester United’s rise this season. The Brazilian has made an immediate impact in Manchester, but he recognizes that results will not be achieved overnight, given that their rivals have had years to develop.

He said: “When you arrive at a new club, you always dream of making history… especially if we see the greatness of this club. We know the history. But of course, I was aware of needing some time to adapt and of the rivals having a long-term plan before ours, like Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool.

“They all have managers that have been there for a while and, therefore, they have an advantage. I’m happy with my adaptation here, my teammates and the staff are really helping me… also with the English language, it’s been quite hard but I’m really trying to get better.

“Everyone here has been lovely with me and since the first day I feel at home here. I appreciate all the effort that the club has done to bring me here, John (Murtough, United’s director of football) included. I’m very comfortable at Manchester United, extremely happy to be here and enjoying every moment like a 15-year-old kid! But the most important (thing) is to see the team growing.”

Casemiro’s absence in United’s most recent league match emphasized his significance. A yellow card at Crystal Palace prevented him from making the trip to Arsenal, where the Red Devils lost 3-2 late in the game, but their lack of midfield presence was cited as a problem.

The Brazilian scored two of United’s three goals in their FA Cup match against Reading on Saturday night, demonstrating his goal-scoring prowess.

Roy Keane stated regarding his performance: “Over the last few years for Man Utd, particularly in the middle of the park, they’ve lacked a quality player with a big personality, a guy with a bit of presence. He’s a top-quality player. We see it week in, week out. He affects games.”
