Antony sparks concern in warm-up for Man United’s meeting with Sevilla

A key member of the attacking ranks at Manchester United set pulses racing on Thursday night, in the warm-up for the club’s meeting with Sevilla.

Erik ten Hag’s troops, of course, are currently locked in action.

Amid an ongoing pursuit of glory in Europe, the Red Devils have welcomed La Liga strugglers Sevilla to Old Trafford, for the first-leg of the Europa League quarter-final tie between the clubs.

Boss Ten Hag was forced to deal with a series of blows on the personnel front in the buildup to the clash, with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw ruled out through injury.

In turn, the last thing which United’s headmaster would have wanted to see, just minutes out from the action being kicked into gear in Manchester, was another member of his squad pulling up with a problem.

As alluded to above, though, this, in fact, is precisely what went on to play out.

As per the Manchester Evening News, winger Antony ‘appeared to hurt his back in the warm-up’.

The Brazilian was nevertheless fit to feature from the off against Sevilla, but his wellbeing will no doubt be monitored closely over the course of the evening to come.
