Welcoming Wolves at Old Trafford, despite the home advantage, Manchester United is still expected to experience a difficult 90 minutes.
Besides the poor performance with 1 win only in the last 4 matches in the Premier League, over the years, the Wolves have always been a difficult opponent for Man Utd.
However, coach Erik Ten Hag’s teachers and students showed a completely different secreт compared to recent matches, when they pressed the away team from the beginning of the match until the last minutes of the match.
In the 32nd minute, Anthony Martial gave Man Utd the lead after a series of situations surrounding the Wolves side of the goal.
Despite playing dominating and creating countless scoring opportunities, it wasn’t until the 90+4 minute that Man Utd got their second goal thanks to Alejandro Garnacho’s goal.
Notably, despite not scoring or assisting, Antony’s performance in this match was actually not inferior to Martial or Garnacho’s.
It is easy to see, the first really dangerous opportunities that Man Utd had against Wolves came from Antony’s position. At the same time, he was also the author of the assist phase that led to Martial opening the scoring.
Statistics from Statman Dave show that Antony has a total of 57 touches against the Wolves, won in 5 duels, correctly executed 21/25 passes in the bottom third of the opponent’s field – includes 3 passes to create chances for teammates.
In addition, Antony was especially impressed with 6 shots, 4/4 successful attempts to pass and 7 situations to recover the ball.
It is important to know, this is the first time Antony has contributed directly to a Man Utd goal in the last 7 appearances after being complained by Man United fans for his cumbersome play and bad finishing ability.
Hopefully this will be a turning point for him to have the last matches of the season with sublime performance.
