Manchester United beat Chelsea 4-1 in the 32nd round of the English Premier League (PL) in the 2022-23 season held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on the 26th. As a result of this day, Manchester United won the right to advance to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) next season.
Anthony went down with an injury during a match against Chelsea. He complained of pain in the 23rd minute of the first half and could not get up. He got back on his feet, but he couldn’t play any more. In the end, Anthony was carried away on a stretcher in tears. Manchester United, who had taken the lead through Casemiro’s opening goal, added three more goals afterwards. Although they conceded a goal to João Felix at the end of the second half, they won 4-1.

▲ Opponent goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabala expresses concern over Anthony’s injury.
It became a situation where I couldn’t just laugh at the victory. The possibility of long-term injury to Anthony, who invested 100 million euros (approximately 142.6 billion won) during the summer transfer market, has been raised. Manchester United will face Manchester City in the FA Cup Final on the 3rd.
‘BBC’ said, “Anthony left the ground in tears due to an injury during the match against Chelsea.” “I am concerned about a recurrence of the injury suffered while playing for Ajax last season. At that time, Anthony was unable to play for two months.” Anthony missed the last eight games of the 2021-22 season due to an injury during the South American qualifier for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in March last year.
The director also expressed concern. Director Eric Ten Haag shook his head, saying, “Anthony’s injury looks serious. I don’t know the details yet, but it’s not weak. I think he needs a close examination.”
Meanwhile, Manchester United’s main left-back Luke Shaw (27) was also replaced early due to injury during a game with Chelsea. Director Ten Haag added, “I don’t think Shaw’s injury is serious. He needs more time to check it out.”
