Antony sought out Jorginho after Man Utd's late equaliser

Antony sought out Jorginho after Man Utd's late equaliser

The Man Utd forward was very happy with his team's goal and gave it the big one to Chelsea's penalty scorer whilst celebrating.

Manchester United forward Antony left Chelsea midfielder Jorginho in no doubt about how happy he was at Casemiro's late equaliser, by celebrating right in front of his opponent.

It was a tense, if not always exciting, 90 minutes as two rivals for the Premier League top four went head-to-head at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

The big story ahead of the game was the exclusion of Cristiano Ronaldo, after he'd walked out on his teammates and refused to come on days before.

Despite most people siding with Erik ten Hag, Roy Keane decided to back his former teammate, even though he'd have threatened death had the forward done that when the Irishman was his captain at Old Trafford.

Perhaps Erik ten Hag was wishing he had the man with 700 career club goals on the pitch as Marcus Rashford and Antony both missed chances in the first half.

United dominated that opening 45 minutes but Graham Potter's changes made things more even after the break and the game looked to be limping to a 0-0 draw.

That was until Scott McTominay fouled Armando Broja in the penalty box and Jorginho scored a penalty in the 87th minute, leaving United very little time to hit back.

However, hit back they did, through Casemiro's injury time header, made more dramatic by Peter Drury's commentary, sparking scenes of celebration from United players.

Clearly Antony didn't like how Jorginho celebrated the opener, with the Brazilian forward running over to the Blues midfielder to shout in his face, before running off to join his teammates.

Jorginho was partially at fault for United's equaliser, having fouled Anthony Elanga just moments before, with the forward running free down the left.

The Italian midfielder took a yellow card for his troubles but it didn't end the danger of conceding a late goal, with United having a set piece.

Chelsea cleared the first two attempts to whip the ball in but then it came back to Luke Shaw who swung and attempt in towards the back post.

It looked like Scott McTominay would have the chance to atone for giving away the penalty but instead Casemiro appeared on the scene.

His header only narrowly went over the line but goal line technology confirmed that Kepa didn't manage to keep it out, sparking the scenes of jubilation.

Antony has already endeared himself to the United fans, after breaking a club record by scoring in his first three Premier League games after joining.

Despite failing to score in the past few games, he has still been lauded for his performances, however not everyone is happy with his summer move.

Ajax chief executive Edwin van der Sar recently revealed how upset he was over the 22-year-old's departure in the summer.

"It was [an] economic [decision] but it was a hard one to take. We knew there was interest but not at that level and it was too late to find a good replacement," the former United goalkeeper told The Times.

"I don't think the way [Antony] handled it was the correct one, but it's important all the players who leave Ajax have success because it reflects well on us."
