Manchester United winger Antony has been branded a YouTube footballer who "lacks substance" amid a barrage of criticism following his performance against Arsenal on Sunday.

The Brazilian played 71 minutes of the 3-2 defeat at the Emirates Stadium, but failed to make any sort of impact. Erik ten Hag was clearly not impressed, opting to replace the winger with Fred, despite United chasing the game in the second half.

Antony arrived as one of Uniteds marquee signings in the summer, with the club shelling out 85.5million to get him from Ajax. They sanctioned the clubs second highest ever transfer fee after Antony recorded 24 goals and 22 assists in 82 appearances for Ajax, but are yet to be repaid.

The 22-year-old has five goals in 19 games across all competition so far, but is yet to record a single assist and hasnt netted in the Premier League since October 9. His performance against Arsenal was slammed by Rio Ferdinand, who bemoaned his inability to beat defenders.
