Manchester United were ridiculed last week when rivals Manchester City hit 6 goals past them. City were already 4-0 up at half-time, with United thoroughly embarrassed by Pep’s boys. Antony scored a wonderful goal to give United some hope, but that was soon crushed by Haaland and his frontmen.
United’s Next Test:
Erik Ten Hag’s team are now up against an Everton side on a seven-game unbeaten run, and Antony believes his team must take control of the match. “We know it’s going to be a difficult, tough game. My team-mates have already spoken to me about this fixture,” he told Premier League Productions. “They said it will be difficult. We have to impose our game, show our strength. We shouldn’t get worked up and let our heads go down because of one game [at City], one result.”
“Sadly, we lost the last [league] game but, when you think about it, we’ve beaten Liverpool and the league leaders Arsenal. Our season can’t be summarised by just one game. We’re now focused on the match against Everton and, God willing, we will get the three points.”
Antony has now scored in both of his Premier League appearances since joining United from Ajax and will hope to guide his team to a fifth victory of the season in the Premier League this weekend.
