The European season may be reaching its final stages, but there are still big things at stake. The football community will be in for a treat on Saturday, June 3, when Manchester United and Manchester City battle it out for the FA Cup.
The crosstown rivals will clash at Wembley in one of the most anticipated finals of football’s oldest tournament in recent memory. Unfortunately, it looks like Antony may not be eligible in Erik ten Hag’s squad.
++ Antony says United will be a contender for the Premier League title next season
++ Sampaoli wants Manchester United’s Alex Telles in Flamengo
++ Ten Hag will make changes and Man United will let Alex Telles go at the end of the season
Antony in doubt for FA Cup final
The Brazilian had to be subbed off after 29 minutes during United’s 4-1 win over Chelsea on Thursday, following a tackle from Trevoh Chalobah. Antony left the field in a stretcher, tears in his face, and it’s uncertain whether he’ll recover on time for the FA Cup final.

“I don’t know,” ten Hag said in regard to the extent of Antony’s injury, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News. “Everyone has seen he came off. I can tell you that it’s serious but we have to wait a minimum 24 hours and then we know probably more about the status of his injury.”
