Antony has been carried off on a stretcher during the first-half of Manchester United’s final home match of the season against Chelsea on Thursday evening.
The Brazilian went down in a heap just before the half-hour mark after successfully navigating his way through a crowded Chelsea defence before being clattered in a challenge by Trevor Chalobah.
Antony hit the Old Trafford turf, momentarily rising to demand a foul before curling up and rolling around in agony as play carried on.
No free-kick was given as Chalobah appeared to win the ball cleanly and Antony at first glance looking like he was playing for the foul that never came.
However, concern began to grow as the 23-year-old started to slam his first into the ground and held his leg while writhing around in considerable discomfort.

The ball was eventually put out of play by Aaron Wan-Bissaka to allow United’s medics to rush onto the pitch and treat the injured winger.
Marcus Rashford was substituted on as the forward’s replacement as Antony was carried down the tunnel to receiver further treatment.
