It was the first time the Brazilian was sent off straight in his career despite being a tough tackler. He grabbed the neck of Palace midfielder Will Hughes during a scuffle that broke out during the game.

United's defence of the situation was not that their midfielder should not have been sent off but other players should too which leaves them in a difficult position whether to appeal or not, as reported by Manchester Evening News.
