Antony scored his debut goal against Arsenal in the first match
Arsenal won all five of their opening fixtures, while United was on a run of three straight wins after making an impressive recovery following back-to-back defeats against Brighton and Brentford.
In the sequence of events leading up to the first significant scoring opportunity of the match, Antony displayed an exceptional level of ability, which resulted in Christian Eriksen coming perilously close to scoring with a volley at the Right side of the back post.
Later on, when Gabriel Martinelli put the ball in the back of the net at the other end of the field, there was debate about whether or not he scored.
However, after a lengthy review by the VAR, the goal was overturned because Martin Odegaard had pushed Christian Eriksen in the lead-up to the scoring opportunity.
The goal by Antony gives Manchester United the lead against Arsenal.
On his first game for Man United, which took place Sunday afternoon against Arsenal, Antony scored a goal.
And it was United that took a slender 1-0 lead into the 35′ halftime break thanks to their newly acquired Brazilian superstar, who beat Aaron Ramsdale to the ball and tucked it into the bottom corner of the goal.
To the joy of the home fans inside Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag started the £86 million signing, who had previously lit up the Eredivisie with his skill over the course of the previous two seasons. This was much to the satisfaction of Erik ten Hag.
And with a goal that was taken with great skill, the South American player brought the house down at the Theatre of Dreams ten minutes before the break.
At the beginning of the afternoon, two of the most dominant teams in the Premier League were separated by seven positions and six points.
