Antony had a lackluster debut season at Man Utd, scoring only four goals in 25 league matches and failing to register a single goal or assist in 930 minutes of Premier League action. Comparatively, Maguire, a center-back, achieved his second assist of the season with fewer appearances than Antony. This discrepancy raises questions about Antony’s productivity and his future at the club.
The Brazilian player’s only goal contributions this season came in a match against fourth-tier Newport County in the FA Cup. With Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho being favored as wide options, Antony faces tough competition for playing time, alongside Amad Diallo. Additionally, McTominay’s crucial goal off the bench helped Man Utd secure a 2-1 win against Villa, with the player expressing contentment with his role as a substitute.
