Jamie Carragher has blasted Antony for a moment he had with Rasmus Højlund against Crystal Palace that has gone rather under the radar since the Premier League loss.

During a game where Manchester United very much needed to take all three points, Erik ten Hag‘s men put in one of their worst displays of the season as they lost 4-0 against Crystal Palace on Monday evening.

During a period where there have been too many injuries, Casemiro and Jonny Evans started as the defensive pair and coughed up two performances that have been rightly lambasted.

Michael Olise, Jean-Philippe Mateta, and Tyrick Mitchell were the four goalscorers at Selhurst Park as United fell to eighth in the league table, but former Liverpool defender-turned-pundit Jamie Carragher has decided to focus on Antony.

Antony’s Højlund moment

Antony has been widely criticised during his first two years at Old Trafford. The Brazilian winger failed to live up to the expectations that his £82 million price tag set.

And Carragher, speaking about what he saw following the full-time whistle of the Crystal Palace against Manchester United tie, once again focused on Antony’s attitude.

“Do you know why this winds me up [players putting their hands over their mouths and speaking to each other]?” Carragher told the Stick to Football podcast.

“On Monday Night Football, you are watching on the normal TV that everyone is watching. [In the] second half, Manchester United counterattacked, and Antony played a ball through to Hojlund; there is a bit of a mix-up, and Antony threw his arms at Højlund.

“They go back and defend a corner, and he is still doing it; I hate that. When Antony was coming off, I knew what he was talking about. He is talking about one of the players, he’s talking about the manager. He is not talking about where they [the players] are going.

“I hate all of that whispering when you have had a bad defeat. They are talking about someone, and I am not having that. You can imagine the coach on the way home and on the plane. Højlund is probably sat there thinking everyone is talking about him.”
