Antony wins United's Goal of the Month award

Saturday 01 October 2022 07:00

Antony's first strike for Manchester United has been voted our Goal of the Month for September.

Latching onto a clever through ball from Marcus Rashford, our new no.21 kept his composure on his United debut to fire us into an early lead against Arsenal.

Setting out our stall was crucial to Erik ten Hag's plans as we ended an unbeaten start to the 2022/23 Premier League campaign for Mikel Arteta's side, running out 3-1 winners at Old Trafford.

Collecting 39 per cent of the votes, Antony saw off strong competition from Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho in particular to top our poll for September.

Receiving praise from fans and pundits alike, the Brazilian's goal also showcased the impressive team ethic Ten Hag has instilled at United, given that every player touched the ball in the build-up.

Following a flowing move, Antony positioned himself perfectly to finish it off and set up a enthralling victory over one of our oldest rivals.

Sancho's tidy finish against Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League was the runner-up to Antony's award-winning effort, with 17 per cent of the vote.

The first of Rashford's two goals against the Gunners finished third in the poll and all three forwards will now be hoping to carry their scoring form into October.

United will play nine games across the month, beginning with the Manchester derby on Sunday as the Premier League resumes after the recent international break.
