Man United star Antony’s showboating has divided expert opinion

The 22-year-old has looked impressive since joining United from Ajax in the summer, scoring three Premier League goals in six appearances.

It comes amid the furor surrounding his display of ‘spin skill’ against FC Sheriff.

Antony was taken off at half-time, but Ten Hag later admitted it was pre-planned. He insisted, however, that he would ‘correct’ the winger for the unnecessary tricks.

This skill caused a lot of backlash from pundits, who argued that the manager should have snagged him straight away.

Harry Maguire returned to start a Premier League game and took the captain’s armband.

Cristiano Ronaldo also got just a third league start of the season after the debacle around his refusal to feature against Tottenham.
