New £86 million signing Antony opened the scoring - and his account for the Red Devils - after being played through by Marcus Rashford in the 35th minute.
The Brazilian produced a tidy left-foot finish into the far bottom corner and wheeled away in passionate celebration for his debut goal.
Look at Ramsdale, he thought Antony was right footed 😭😭 pic.twitter.com/d4ooFPLqPE— Janty (@CFC_Janty) September 4, 2022
However, plenty of fans think Ramsdale made it a lot easier for the former Ajax man. Granted it was one-on-one chance and not exactly a goalkeeping gaffe, but many believe Ramsdale went down too early in an effort to make the save.
In addition, some think he thought Antony was actually right-footed - hence why he dived at the near post and left the opposite side open.
All he had to do was dive to his right smh https://t.co/hUajXPZrv2— Maverick (@___Nans) September 5, 2022
Ramsdale quite literally couldn't have made this any easier for Antony. Look at how far away from the ball he is, this could've been placed in the middle of the goal and it still goes in... #AFC https://t.co/KxQoLue53W— DAZ (@AFCDavid147) September 5, 2022
Unreal positioning from Ramsdale tbf to him https://t.co/DMo1hVWfYk— .. (@benfield99) September 5, 2022
Where is he going there 😂😂😂 There is absolutely 0 chance Antony is going anywhere but where he went. Another odd one from Ramsdale https://t.co/15Zis1y6wS— Wards (@Wards187) September 5, 2022
National team goalkeeper and he’s diving to the near post in a 1v1 💀 https://t.co/BgrmpHAGnK— pettywap (@bundaoclock) September 5, 2022
He was shaping his body to shoot with his left…pretty obvious https://t.co/EgJNEwNUI4— Zeus.ts (@mightyzeus9) September 5, 2022
The 22-year-old is quite clearly a 'leftie' and that was pretty apparent in the way he shaped up to strike the ball.
The goal had come up against the run of play and not long after Gabriel Martinelli had one chalked off when a VAR review deemed Martin Odegaard to have fouled Christian Eriksen.
Interestingly, after the opener, Erik ten Hag put his hand on the fourth official's shoulder in an action that caused a stir.
Arsenal drew level through Bukayo Saka on the hour mark but Rashford struck twice to make it four wins in a row and inflict the Gunners' first defeat of the season.
Mikel Arteta's side remain top of the league by one point and are back in action in the Europa League against FC Zurich before they host Everton at the Emirates.
