Man United Star Dubbed As An Entertainer After Doing This To Get Past Two Tottenham Players

After he was signed for 100 million, very few people believed that Anthony was worth the heavy price tag. Indeed, former midfielder and pundit Paul Scholes, claimed that Anthony and Jadon Sancho could not dribble past full backs.

However, if Tottenham full back Ivan Perisic had been tasked with answering the same question about the Brazilian, the response would probably be a different one.

Anthony was Man United's most dangerous player against Tottenham, due to the high amount of dribbles he attempted and completed during the game.

Marcus Rashford also comes close due to his pace although he missed lots of chances to score during the game. Against Tottenham, Anthony pulled off outrageous skills to get past Persic who was playing at full back multiple times.

For instance, during the first half, the Brazilian used his body well to shield the ball before sidestepping past Perisic, without losing the ball which could have gone out.

Anthony was too quick for Perisic who tried to extend his leg and take the ball out of the pitch only for Anthony to move past him.

Anthony also hit the post during the ninth minute after producing a wonderful curling effort from outside the box.
