Antony makes Arsenal fan eat his words on live stream watchalong, it was perfect timing

An Arsenal fan was made to eat his words by Manchester United debutant Antony on a live stream watchalong.

Lee Gunner, who has over 72,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, was joined by fellow Arsenal supporter Ola on Sunday afternoon to watch the club's Premier League clash at Old Trafford.

Things looked promising for the away side early on. Mikel Arteta's side enjoyed large spells of possession in the opening stages but former Ajax man Antony opened the scoring for United, just days after joining the club in a £86 million deal.

Old Trafford erupted in the 34th minute following Antony's left-footed strike, while thousands at home witnessed an entertaining, yet unfortunate moment on Lee Gunner's live stream.

After seeing some comments about the Brazilian in his comments section, the host said: "Antony's done nothing, by the way, Absolutely nothing so far in this game.

"People are saying what is Antony doing. Nothing bro. Apart from one shot over the bar. I haven't nothing that he's done."

Seconds later and Lee was made to eat his words by the debutant. You couldn't make it up.

Erik ten Hag will be hoping for more of the same from Antony in the coming weeks and months. In his post-match interview, the Dutch manager labelled Antony "the missing link" in his team.

"You can see all of his potential," he said. "He will be a threat in the Premier League. We were missing a player on the right wing.

"[Jadon] Sancho and [Marcus] Rashford can play there but they prefer the left so now we have the missing link who can play well on the right. 

"We needed that on the right wing with his pace and dribbles and expression. It (the Premier League) is going be a challenge for him but we saw his potential.

"We have to keep pushing. I set high standards every day. Everyone has to bring it every day to Carrington."

Mikel Arteta, meanwhile, criticised the lack of consistency surrounding VAR in his post-match interview.

"We should come here and win the game," he said. "The performance, to come here and play the way they have and dominate, the way they have to play when they’re here you want to be at the top, you have to win the game."

He added: "The lack of consistency... last week there was a foul on Aaron, that is soft and not a foul.

"There’s a tackle on Bukayo it’s soft and not a penalty. Today it is a foul, the threshold in the first action, you could see there was some strong tackles but there was no yellow because it is a big game.

"It's really difficult to understand."
