The remarkable moment took place in the last minutes of MU’s 2-0 win over Nottingham in round 31 of the Premier League on the night of April 16 (Hanoi time).
In the 76th minute, Antony poked a slot to let Diogo Dalot ice up and set the score 2-0 for Manchester United. After the goal, the winger duo of the “Red Devils” celebrated enthusiastically.
Antony smiled and hugged Dalot, but when Harry Maguire came to celebrate, the former Ajax star immediately changed to a cold face and only shook hands with the captain born in 1993.
After 7 months, Antony has scored again in the Premier League. The close-range finish and assist for Dalot to score the player born in 2000 helped MU surpass Newcastle in the rankings with 3 more points.
7 shots, 2 chances created, 82 touches, 86% pass accuracy, 1 goal and 1 assist are Antony’s impressive stats. The former Ajax star was voted by Sofascore as the best player of the match at City Ground (8.5 points).
MU has a favorable momentum for the quarter-final second leg of the Europa League in the middle of the week. The “Red Devils” drew Sevilla 2-2 at Old Trafford and were forced to win on the opponent’s field to continue.
In front of the teacher and coach Erik ten Hag is a difficult schedule. They will have to face Sevilla, Brighton (FA Cup semi-final) and Tottenham (round 32 of the Premier League) respectively.
