Manchester United

One player, against Chelsea, made Ten Hag overly excited A united star makes a strong statement against Chelsea with two crucial passes, one big chance produced, and seven tackles won.

Manchester United defeated Chelsea 2-1 at Old Trafford on Wednesday, pulling off an incredible comeback from their defeat the previous weekend.

A key factor in the victory was the extraordinary daring of manager Erik ten Hag in restructuring the team.

The season’s best scorer, Marcus Rashford, was under pressure to be included, but ten Hag made the crucial choice to start the explosive Antony on the right.

Despite not yet having any goals or assists for the season, Antony showed resilience and adaptability.

Among his memorable performances was the penalty he won following an Enzo Fernandez foul, which led to Bruno Fernandes missing the penalty kick. The Brazilian did not let the loss stop him from being a constant menace on the right.

Antony showed a noticeable improvement over his previous performance with 52 touches, two crucial passes, and the development of a big scoring opportunity.

Unafraid to shoot, he faced two blocked attempts and tested the opponents with one on target and one off target (figures via Sofascore).

Antony’s deft footwork was on display in tight situations as he skillfully drew opponents and won four fouls.

His perseverance paid off as he won seven duels and made two tackles, demonstrating his desire to play defense and aid the team’s victory.

Following a difficult start to his second season in Manchester, the former Ajax player is progressively finding his form again, building on his impressive performance against Galatasaray in the Champions League.

Now, the emphasis is on turning his efforts into goals and assists, giving vital assistance to relieve the burden.

Antony should be kept for the forthcoming match against Bournemouth because of his outstanding performance, which highlights his skill.
