Manchester United new man Antony can surpass Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Premier League start as the Red Devils face Everton while Marcus Rashford seeks to end barren spell

October 7, 2022

Antony has made a decent start to life in the Premier League for Manchester United.

The Brazilian international has scored two goals, including a stunning strike with his left against Manchester City.

That thunderbolt, though, had no impact on the result as Erik ten Hag’s side were obliterated 6-3 by their neighbours. But it was still a good goal.

And he can set a new Manchester United Premier League record when his club make that short trip to Merseyside to face Everton on Sunday night.

No player has ever scored in their first three appearances for the Red Devils in the top-flight.

Antony has already had a good start, but that would make it an unprecedented one.

And though it is early days, he could be a mainstay on that right wing for many years.

But Everton are much improved from last year, and a game under the lights will be a serious test for Antony and the Red Devils.
