There has been an illness going around the squad in the last few weeks, with Rasmus Højlund, Anthony Martial, and Marcus Rashford also all missing games of late due to illness.

Antony, though, was confirmed as injured, although it has been said that his injury is only “minor”.

This is according to the Telegraph, who imply that the injury is not too serious, with the player therefore hopefully back for the next game.

United are next set to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, marking the first Old Trafford fixture of 2024.

Even if Antony is fit to return, he may find himself sitting on the bench after Alejandro Garnacho put in yet another good performance from the right wing.
