Antony's performance analysis at the Red Devils for 2023-24

The 24-year-old Brazilian forward Antony is in his second season as a Manchester United player. So, has the performance of the Brazilian striker lived up to expectations? The Red Devils striker came to Old Trafford at the start of the 2022/2023 season. He came on the recommendation of manager Erik ten Hag, they had brilliant years when they were still defending Ajax Amsterdam.

Man United had to pay a lot to buy Antony, the Red Devils made Antony one of the most expensive purchases in club history after being bought for a transfer fee of €95 million from Ajax. At the start of his arrival, Antony immediately won the hearts of United fans with a beautiful goal against Arsenal. However, as days passed and seasons changed, Antony's performance was inconsistent.

Antony went through the 2022/2023 season quite smoothly, he scored four goals and made two assists in 25 matches in the Premier League. Even though his performance has not been consistent, his action is quite promising. Antony was immediately included in the starting XI and was able to make an impact, he didn't need much time to adapt. In this first season, Antony went berserk during the Champions League match against Sheriff Tiraspol, Antony showed off his 360-degree rotation skills while carrying the ball. However, his action received a less positive response.

Antony had a hand in providing one trophy for United in its first season, namely the English League Cup (EFL Cup). In the final match, Man United won 2-0 over Newcastle. Antony was predicted to be an important player in the 2023/2024 season. However, what happened was just the opposite, Antony's performance dropped drastically and he lost his place in the Man United first team. Antony was absent for a long time due to personal problems, he is suspected of being involved in the violence case alleged by his lover. This factor has an impact on Antony's performance on the field.

Of his 29 appearances in the 2023/2024 Premier League season, Antony only played the full game three times, he only contributed one goal and assist, and the striker also lost his position in the starting XI. Erik ten Hag prefers to shift Alejandro Garnacho to the left or play Amad Diallo.
