Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed that Antony is unavailable for tonight’s game against Leeds.
The Brazilian international has joined the likes of Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay on the treatment table ahead of the derby.
Antony has already missed six matches this season since arriving from Ajax, and fans on Twitter are concerned by the number of injuries that the player is picking up:
Huh? How’s Antony not available again?
Don’t wanna have him end up being Martial 2.0

It will be interesting to see who ten Hag decides to start ahead of Antony. Some supporters are clearly hoping that Jadon Sancho will be given a runout.
However, the favourite to be selected is Alejandro Garnacho. The Argentinian winger started against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup last week, with Sancho coming off the bench.
It seems as though Garnacho is above the England international in the pecking order at the moment but we shall have to wait and see who ten Hag chooses.
