EPL Premier League explains why Sabitzer escaped red card against Leicester. Marcel Sabitzer, a midfielder on loan from Manchester United, avoided receiving a red card against Leicester City because VAR referees didn’t think his challenge had enough power or momentum, according to the UK Mirror.
Sabitzer merely relocated from Bayern Munich to Old Trafford in January.
The midfielder’s entry came just in time for Casemiro to get a three-match suspension after receiving a red card against Crystal Palace.
Sabitzer, though, was fortunate to avoid a ban following a rough-looking tackle on Foxes defender Wout Faes.
Marcus Rashford had given the home team the lead at the time of the incident in the first half.
If referee Stuart Attwell had used his red card during the first half, the good 45 minutes would have been compromised.
