Speaking about one major weakness he noticed in Man United during their loss to Liverpool, ex-Man City defender Micah Richards told BBC MOTD: “There was no communication between Diogo Dalot and Antony.
“At times, it was like they were playing with 10 men because Antony wasn’t doing his work at all down that side.
“I didn’t know if it was tactical at first – Antony’s position – but we all know how good Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are so you would think someone would try and get closer to Antony.
“He didn’t track him to begin with – he was eight metres away – and that was just a little taster of what was to happen. Antony needed to come back into that position but he just doesn’t do it.
“I was confused as to whether he was just being lazy for his team or his manager was just telling him to stay up there and be a threat on the counter-attack.
“Either way, it just kept happening and happening. As soon as they lose the ball, he just walks. We are talking about one of the biggest games for Manchester United.”
Antony had a decent first half, before completely capitulating in the second half like many of his teammates.
He struggled to create anything major and seemed to have major communication issues with Diogo Dalot. It remains to be seen if either of the two starts in United’s next match against Real Betis after this.
