Every single Manchester United fan was surprised once the official line-up from the team was announced ahead of the match against Arsenal in which we are winning 1-0 at half-time. What got everyone surprised was the fact that Scott McTominay and the new signing Antony were starting the game ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Casemiro.

The former Ajax player, for which the club paid €95 million fixed plus €5 in add-ons, was given the chance to start after completing just two training sessions with his new teammates and made the most out of the opportunity. Antony scored the only goal in the first half to break the tie and give his new team the lead.

It only took 35 minutes for the 22-year-old to score his first goal as a Red Devil in the Theatre of Dreams, where he is living his dream debut with Manchester United. A lot of people questioned Erik ten Hag for starting him when he has been at the club for less than a week, but he is showing already his worth.

The Brazilian winger couldn’t ask for a better start to his Manchester United career as he has won every single fan’s love and support after his first-half performance against the Gunners. He also celebrated the goal with such passion while grabbing and kissing the club badge, which made the fans go crazy.

Just the beginning

Antony Matheus dos Santos is just getting started at Manchester United, and hopefully, he will keep the momentum rolling as the team needed someone with his footballing skills. With all the dribbles and runs down the wing, it’s impossible for Manchester United fans not to remember a young Cristiano Ronaldo during his first spell at the club.
