Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has explained why Antony missed Manchester United’s Premier League clash with West Ham.

Antony received criticism for his trademark spin during United’s win over Sheriff but Ten Hag confirmed his absence at Old Trafford on Sunday was due to injury.

Asked if Antony’s absence was in some way linked to the backlash the Brazilian received, Ten Hag said: “No, nothing [to do with that].

“He is injured. I hope it’s not too bad, I think it’s not too bad. In a couple of days he will be back.”
