Man Utd fans fume as Jack Grealish gets away with neck grab which Casemiro was red-carded for
As reported by thesun.co.uk, supporters of Manchester United were outraged when Jack Grealish of Manchester City was not penalized for an offence that had resulted in disciplinary action against Casemiro in the past.
In the beginning of the game, Kevin de Bruyne scored and Arsenal struggled to adapt to the tactical strategy that Pep Guardiola implemented against his former assistant Mikel Arteta.
The situation didn't improve for Arsenal. However, it wasn't until injury time at the end of the first half of the game when John Stones controversially increased their lead.
Manchester City didn't have everything go in their favor. In fact, Rob Holding managed to score in the 86th minute of the game, which undoubtedly brought a lot of happiness to him. Nonetheless, that was essentially the only noteworthy moment.
There's a possibility that the outcome would have varied had Ruben Diaz been given a red card, as some believe he should have been sent off for his "kick out" at Ben White.
According to Sportbible, United supporters are of the opinion that Grealish's altercation with Thomas Partey also deserved a red card, in addition to Diaz's dismissal.
There are those who think that the forward's action of seizing the Arsenal midfielder by the neck was similar to the one that resulted in Casemiro's expulsion during the match against Crystal Palace.

"It's not that Grealish should've been sent off, it's just that Casemiro got sent off for something that happens so often in a game. The Premier League, especially after VAR are very prejudiced," argued one fan.
"If Casemiro did what Grealish just did here, he would have been sent off," added a second.
A third noted, "Casemiro was sent off for that but Grealish gets a yellow getting beyond a joke now."
Still using the persecution complex, a fourth said, " Jack Grealish grabs Partey by the collar, you may be thinking he will get a red card just like Casemiro but no. He doesn't play for Manchester United so he's allowed to do whatever."
Adding in the terrible decision in the Liverpool and West Ham game on Wednesday, another posted, "Goodness, me just seen Grealish grab someone's throat and the Thiago hand ball.
"This has been such a poor season for inconsistencies. Casemiro was sent off for less, I am not saying it is a red card. It's not, but it was for united. and how that isn't a handball I don't understand."
