The move took place in the 23rd minute of the first half. Antony tried to pass by Chalobah and ended up being disarmed with a tackle by the Chelsea defender, a move in which the referee did not call a foul. The Brazilian’s right foot got stuck, and Manchester United’s number 21 soon complained of pain, lying on the lawn. During medical care on the field, he even tried to stand up, but was soon taken to a stretcher.
Manchester United won 4-1 and confirmed qualification for the Champions League with a round in advance.
