Antony wins United's October Goal of the Month award

Saturday 05 November 2022 10:00

Antony's goal against Manchester City has been voted as Manchester United’s Goal of the Month for October.

Having been picked out by Christian Eriksen over on the right flank, the Brazilian winger cut inside before curling a wonderful effort beyond Ederson.

Despite suffering an eventual 6-3 defeat, with a late brace from Anthony Martial restoring some pride for Erik ten Hag's men, Antony's goal was undoubtedly one of the bright sparks in the match for United.

Claiming 35 per cent of the vote overall, our no.21 overcame stiff competition from both Casemiro and Marcus Rashford to collect the prize for October.

There is much to enjoy from Antony's stunning strike, none more so than his terrific first touch, as the Brazilian delicately brought the ball under his spell.

Jack Grealish's mistimed header allowed the former Ajax man to travel forward with the ball, before sizing up his left-footed effort and curling the ball beyond the reach of Ederson.

In his first three Premier League matches at United, the winger certainly made an impact, with this goal following his debut strike against Arsenal, before he notched away to Everton the following week.

Casemiro's last-gasp header against Chelsea proved to be the runner up in the voting, with his late heroics securing a much deserved point at Stamford Bridge, whilst also sparking wild scenes in the away end in the process. His goal claimed 31 per cent of the polling.

Rashford's equally impressive headed effort against West Ham came in third place, tallying a respectable 15 per cent. Having been wonderfully picked out by Eriksen inside the penalty area, our no.10 powered home his 100th goal for the club, which was enough to ensure our 1-0 success over the Hammers.

Congratulations on the award, Antony!
