Anthony came under criticism for his unsportsmanlike behavior.
Manchester United lost 0-3 to Manchester City in the 10th round of the 2023-24 Premier League (PL) season held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England at 0:30 a.m. on the 30th (Korean time). As a result, Manchester United remained in 8th place in the league with 5 wins and 5 losses (15 points). Manchester City was in 3rd place with 8 wins and 2 losses (24 points), maintaining a 2-point gap with leader Tottenham Hotspur (26 points).
Manchester United also used the 4-2-3-1 formation. Rasmus Høirun was deployed up front, and Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay, and Bruno Fernandez paired up in the second line. Below them, Sofien Amrabat and Christian Eriksen protected the defense, and the back four consisted of Victor Lindelof, Jonny Evans, Harry Maguire, and Diogo Dalot. The goalkeeper gloves were worn by Andre Onana.
Manchester City used a 4-2-3-1 formation. Erling Holland led the attack, with Jack Grealish, Julian Alvarez, and Phil Foden supporting the attack. Bernardo Silva and Rodri worked together in the third line, while Joszko Gvardiol, John Stones, Ruben Dias, and Kyle Walker made up the back four. The goal was guarded by Ederson.
The game was led by Manchester City. Manchester City took the lead in the 22nd minute of the first half with a penalty kick (PK) and Holan as the kicker. The team that led the mood in the second half was Man City. In the 4th minute of the second half, Silva’s cross from the left side was completed by Holan in front of the goal, scoring an additional goal.
Man City put a wedge in the game. In the 35th minute of the second half, Rodri entered the penalty box and shot with his left foot. Onana blocked this, but Holland caught the second ball, sent a cross, and Foden pushed it in from the front of the goal, shaking the net.
Manchester United did not exert much effort. The players who were brought in as substitutes also failed to make an impact. Even in manners, they were completely defeated by Manchester City. Anthony, who started the game on the bench that day, took the field only in the 41st minute of the second half.
He was deployed in a situation where victory was already decided. Accordingly, rather than focusing on the game, Anthony became obsessed with upsetting the Manchester City players. In the extra time of the second half, Anthony strongly kicked Jeremy Doku’s foot with his left foot while he was dribbling. He clearly did not appear to be trying to kick the ball.짱구카지노
Doku also noticed this. However, he did not get caught up in the emotional battle and only gave a warning with a hand gesture. Antony could not control his emotions and acted out loud, even shaking off Doku’s hand. The referee immediately issued a warning to Anthony for his actions.
After the match, Gary Neville said on Sky Sports: “Anthony kicked at Doku. Manchester United lost discipline and it started with the captain (Bruno Fernandes). Anthony’s behavior makes no sense and is truly embarrassing. He was sent off. “It should have been done,” he pointed out.
Fans were also embarrassed and criticized Anthony’s actions. According to the fan reaction published by the UK’s ‘The Sun’, one fan criticized, “Anthony is angry at being deceived by Doku. Retaliation is real,” and another fan said, “Anthony cried when he saw Doku dribbling like a real winger.” He even taunted, saying, “You can taste it.”
