Gabriel Agbonlahor claimed that Casemiro appeared to be 45 years old in the Manchester United midfield during their 3-1 loss to Brighton.
Erik ten Hag’s team suffered their third defeat in their first five Premier League contests as Brighton earned a victory at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Danny Welbeck, Pascal Gross, and Joao Pedro.
Agbonlahor criticized Casemiro’s midfield play but also criticized Lisandro Martinez, who was duped by Gross for Brighton’s second goal, and he demanded that Harry Maguire be given a starting position.
‘Where do I start? Brighton had 659 passes at Old Trafford. More shots on target, more possession – 57 per cent. It was a stroll in the park for Brighton,’ Agbonlahor told talkSPORT.
‘I am watching the game, at no time did Brighton ever feel like they couldn’t pass it out from the back. No matter who was pressing, they found it so easy to get through and create chances. That was like a training ground game, especially the second half.
‘Casemiro looked like he was 45 running around that midfield. He had to bring him off on the 65th minute for Hannibal, a young lad, because he was that bad. Let’s see the same energy for Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof. Martinez for the Gross goal, he has tried to make a block, he’s got fake-shot by Gross and scored in the back of the net.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that it could take Wataru Endo a while to get used to the Premier League.
Wataru Endo may need some time to adjust to playing in the Premier League and to the higher level at Anfield, according to Jurgen Klopp, who spoke to Liverpool’s official website.
Endo transferred from VfB Stuttgart to Liverpool during the summer transfer period. The Premier League team reportedly paid £16.2 million in transfer fees for the defensive midfielder, according to Sky Sports.
