Manchester United fans are incredulous after Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia went unpunished for what they thought was the same tackle which resulted in Casemiro’s red card.

During Wednesday night’s Premier League clash between Southampton and Brentford, Saints midfielder Lavia went in for a challenge with Christian Norgaard. After seeing the challenge, United fans took to social media to question the consistency of the officiating in the top flight.

One said: “Lavia did the EXACT same challenge as Casemiro did at the weekend, tonight. No red card.”

Another tweeted: “Lavia just made the exact same tackle as Casemiro (even worse) but no red card. Where’s the consistency @premierleague?”

A third fan added: “This tackle from Lavia is worse than that of Casemiro. Where’s the consistency @premierleague?”

Someone else wrote: “So I see Romeo Lavia made the same tackle as Casemiro did at the weekend (but worse) and didn’t even get a booking then.”

Whilst a fifth commented: “Someone tell me the difference between Casemiro and Lavia tackle?”

Last Sunday, United were playing Southampton in the Premier League at Old Trafford.

However, the Red Devils were reduced to 10 men after Brazilian star Casemiro was sent off for a rash challenge on Carlos Alcaraz.

At the time, many felt the decision was harsh as Casemiro intended to play the ball and only went slightly over the top.
