Manchester United's forward Antony is quickly building a reputation for himself as one of the most skilful players in the world.

His mazy runs and quick feet often leave defenders for dead. He arrived at Manchester United from Ajax in a big-money move and so far, so good; he is matching his hefty price tag.

Against Chelsea on October 22nd, Antony came up against Ben Chilwell in his preferred wing. He was one of the main antagonists as Manchester United pinned down Chelsea in the opening exchanges.

He had two half chances in the first half, with one requiring a save from Kepa Arrizabalaga with the other going just outside the right post. But it was his nutmeg that got fans talking.

In the 40th minute, the 22-year-old evaded a challenge from Chilwell and Thiago Silva by nutmegging the former. He then managed to complete a pass to Marcus Rashford.

Joao Cancelo left Bruno Fernandes for dead

Sports Brief has previously reported that new footage has shown Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes being sat down after a moment of brilliance from Manchester City's defender Joao Cancelo.

The two were on opposite sides during the Manchester derby on October 2nd, just a few days after donning the Portugal jersey together.

It turned out to be a frustrating afternoon for Fernandes all around, who once again led out the Red Devils as the team captain. Fernandes' bad day in office was compounded when his international teammate Cancelo left him on the floor with a lovely piece of skill.
