Manchester United’s biggest signing this summer could be making his debut for the biggest club in the world in their biggest match so far this season against Arsenal tonight. The 22-year-old winger was signed earlier this week and has completed two training sessions with the rest of his teammates.

Erik ten Hag was desperate for the club’s board to sign him all summer and he might not wait much longer to play him so the fans can see why they signed him. Let's not forget that Antony is Manchester United’s second most expensive transfer in history, so everyone wants to see what is all the hype around him about.

Although Arsenal arrive at the match with a perfect run so far in the Premier League, they have been struggling with recent injuries. Their biggest concern is the left-back position as Oleksandr Zinchenko hasn’t played in their last couple of games due to a knee injury, so their backup left-back will most likely play tonight.

That is why Erik ten Hag might debut Antony. Since Kieran Tierney will be playing at left-back, then the Brazilian would drive him crazy if he starts in the right-wing position. He is excited to play his first minutes with the Red Devils shirt and will want to show Old Trafford what he is capable of and why they paid so much money for him.

The ace in the hole

Erik ten Hag already knows what Antony is capable of doing to a weaker defender like Kieran Tierney, so he might start Antony right from the kick-off, or he could sub him in during the second half when their left-back will be tired. Antony’s fresh legs could be the key factor for Manchester United to win tonight’s match against the Gunners.
