Man Utd attacker Antony takes Scholes criticism to heart

Manchester United star Antony spent his morning working out in his home gym after their derby defeat.

The Red Devils were battered by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday.

United lost 6-3, having been 4-0 down to City at half time, with Erling Haaland and Phil Foden scoring hat-tricks.

Despite scoring in the game for United, Antony came in for criticism from pundits after the match.

He was accused of not doing enough to support his full-back Diogo Dalot defensively, especially in the first period.

United legend Paul Scholes posted on social media: "Anyone remember when wingers used to help their full-backs?"

For his part, Antony showed a picture of himself training in his home gym.
