Erik ten Hag has confirmed that Antony suffered a "serious" injury against Chelsea, with Manchester United also losing Luke Shaw in that contest.

Brazilian winger forced off in tearsEngland full-back replaced at half-timeSilverware up for grabs on June 3WHAT HAPPENED? The Red Devils eased their way to a 4-1 victory over the out-of-sorts Blues at Old Trafford, but victory - one which secured a top-four finish and Champions League qualification - came at a price. Brazil international winger Antony went down in agony following a challenge from Trevoh Chalobah, leading to him leaving the field in tears and on a stretcher after just 29 minutes, while England left-back Shaw was replaced by Tyrell Malacia at half-time.

WHAT THEY SAID: Ten Hag said afterwards when asked for an update on the two stricken stars: "It's difficult always to say, straight after the game, but, yeah, Antony is serious. Luke Shaw, we have to see. I don't think it's too bad but we have to wait 24 hours. We'll have a diagnosis and we will know more."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Dutch coach added when pressed on how long he could be without his fleet-footed South American forward and hard-working defender: "I don't know [about Antony]. Everyone has seen he came off. I can tell you it is serious but we have to wait a minimum [of] 24 hours, then we know probably more about the status of the injury."
