On Sunday, Antony scored on his Manchester United debut, as the Brazilian’s clinical strike and Marcus Rashford’s double inspired a 3-1 win that ended Arsenal’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season.
Antony made his debut after joining United from United manager Erik ten Hag’s former club Ajax in an £82 million ($94 million) deal on Thursday. With flicks, tricks, and purposeful movement, the 22-year-old forward scored in just 35 minutes in a dazzling debut for his new fans at Old Trafford.
Arsenal equalized through Bukayo Saka, but Rashford stunned the leaders with two goals in nine second-half minutes after Antony was replaced by Cristiano Ronaldo. United were able to celebrate a fourth consecutive victory, moving them up to fifth place, thanks to Antony and Rashford.
Ten Hag’s first two games as manager were humiliating defeats against Brighton and Brentford.
