It’s time Erik ten Hag unleashes the next young Ronaldinho against Liverpool if they want to revenge the 7-0 at Old Trafford. He is so terrific in attack and Antony need to take a seat”-Erik Ten Hag has not choice than to start Man Utd’s “sensational” gem over Antony against Liverpool clash.

Manchester United advanced to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup on Wednesday evening with a narrow 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest.

The win held significant importance beyond the isolated match, serving as a rebound from their previous 2-1 defeat to Fulham at home over the weekend.

Despite this crucial victory, Manchester United faces a daunting task ahead in the form of the Manchester derby against their formidable rivals, Manchester City, scheduled for Sunday. Erik ten Hag’s side enters the tie as heavy underdogs against the imperious City.

However, the return of a certain individual who saw limited action against Forest could significantly enhance their chances of victory. Antony’s performance against Forest reflected a slight improvement compared to his previous outings. Although the Brazilian winger has struggled to replicate the potential he demonstrated at Ajax and the start of his United career, he showcased glimpses of improvement during the match. Notably, Antony displayed excellent ball retention and contributed positively when cutting inside from the right flank, boasting a remarkable 95% pass accuracy and 58 touches. Additionally, he demonstrated a willingness to take risks, attempting three shots and providing four key passes.

Despite the improvement in his performance, it may not be sufficient to warrant a starting role in Sunday’s match. As such, Antony is likely to be relegated to the bench, paving the way for another promising prospect to feature in the starting lineup.
