Antony ‘doesn’t do enough’ for Manchester United’s as £86million man is compared to Arsenal flop Nicolas Pepe for lack of end-product

    Gabby Agbonlahor believes that Manchester United star Antony gives him ‘vibes’ of former Arsenal forward Nicolas Pepe.

    The former Aston Villa star was discussing the Brazilian’s performance in the aftermath of United’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

    Antony has been a little bit inconsistent since moving to United last summer

    Antony arrived at Old Trafford for a fee worth up to £86million over the summer and has scored six goals and bagged two assists in 18 appearances for the club.

    But while the 22-year-old has showed glimpses of his quality since moving from Ajax, Agbonlahor believes that he needs to do more.

    Asked which Manchester United player he was unhappy with, Agbonlahor told The Sports Breakfast: “I think Antony, for me.

    “Watching him last night he wasn’t happy when he got dragged off, but he doesn’t do enough for me.

    “He’s giving me Pepe, who used to be at Arsenal, vibes. He has tricks but doesn’t really beat a player and for me, they need Garnacho to start against Arsenal.

    “They need Jadon Sancho to get back amongst it. They need more options on the wing because Antony is not at it at the moment.
