Luton manager Rob Edwards insists Manchester United midfielder Casemiro should have been sent off in Sunday’s match at Kenilworth Road.
United won 2-1 in the Premier League clash, but Casemiro was taken off by manager Erik ten Hag at half-time after risking being sent off.
The midfielder had already been booked for a challenge on Amari’i Bell and was perhaps lucky not to receive a second yellow card shortly after catching Ross Barkley.
Edwards claimed that the fact that Casemiro was substituted is an indication that he should have received a red card.
Edwards told Sky Sports: “The fact that he came off at half-time could be a telling sign of how I feel about it.” I’m not going to complain about that right now.’

Casemiro was replaced by Scott McTominay before the second half, and United managed to take the victory.
United had established a two-goal lead after just seven minutes when Rasmus Hojlund scored a brace.
Carlton Morris scored a goal for Luton, but it was United who ultimately took the three points.
The result leaves Luton in 17th place in the Premier League, one point above the relegation zone.
