Antony Dos Santos in danger on missing FA Cup final

Erik ten Hag fears winger Antony suffered a ‘serious’ injury as Manchester United fulfilled the “main objective” of Champions League qualification by thrashing Chelsea.

Manchester United winger Antony Dos Santos in danger of missing the FA cup final against rivals Manchester City after sustaining injury against Chelsea last night.

The Red Devils sealed their return to European football’s top table with a game to spare by thrashing Frank Lampard’s wasteful Blues 4-1 at Old Trafford on Thursday evening.

Casemiro, Anthony Martial, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford all found the back of the net before Joao Felix struck a late consolation on a night that saw Antony leave on a stretcher in the first half of the match.

Asked for an update on the Brazil international, Ten Hag said: “I don’t know. Everyone has seen he came off.

“I can tell you that it’s serious but we have to wait minimum 24 hours and then we know probably more about the status of his injury.”

Ten Hag’s comments suggest Antony is in danger of missing the FA Cup final against Manchester City on June 3, with Luke Shaw also requiring assessment after being substituted with a reported back issue.

“We have to wait,” he said. “Antony looks serious but we don’t know what it is. With Shaw, we have to wait as well. After tomorrow we know more.”
