Plum skin Witch fear of winger Antony Manchester United suffered a “serious” injury while achieving their “main goal”. Champions League Qualifying round, beating Chelsea.

The Red Devils beat Frank Lampard’s wasteful Blues 4-1 at Old Trafford on Thursday evening, sealing his return to the best table in European football with a substitute game.

Casemiro, Anthony FightBruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford scored before Joao Felix found late solace on a night Antony left on a stretcher in the first half.

When asked for an update on the Brazilian international, Ten Hag replied, “I don’t know. Everyone saw it come out.

“I can tell you the situation is serious but we have to wait at least 24 hours and then we will probably know more about the condition of his wound.”

Ten Hag’s comments suggest Antony is in danger of missing the FA Cup final against Manchester City on June 3, and Luke Shaw also needs consideration after being replaced by a reported issue.

“We have to wait,” he said. Antony looks serious but we don’t know what happened. Shaw and I have to wait. We will know more after tomorrow.”

For a United team without Lisandro Martinez, Marcel Sabitzer and Donny van de Beek in the FA Cup final, their absence would be a huge blow.

Beating City will be the cherry on top of what Ten Hag currently believes to be a “successful season”.

“I always have high expectations for myself and I think this club belongs in the Champions League, so you have to stay in the top four.”

“But this league is very strong and there are many teams, many clubs competing for the position and they can all do it because they have high budgets and good squads.

“We see Chelsea, they have a huge, good roster of exceptional players.

“So we’re happy to be in the top 4. I think we played a good season in the Premier League. I can say it’s been a very good season.”

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger told Ten Hag that making the top four is the equivalent of winning a trophy: “Oh, I guess in the Premier League, yeah, something like that.

“I think the main goal of the season is to go to the Champions League.

“So you have to place yourself in the top four, and as I just tried to answer, the competition is tough.

“There are a lot of teams with really good rosters, good managers, so you do a good job when you’re there and your team is playing well and performing well.

“I think that’s the maximum for now, but we want more.”

The hunger for more means support is needed during the summer transfer window, no matter who owns United.

“You should see how you exit the transfer window,” Ten Hag added.

“But if I see it now, I think we need more, so I don’t have much patience. That’s one of my mistakes.”

Chelsea secured a bottom half finish for the first time in 27 years, before recording the club’s 16th defeat in a 38-game Premier League season.

temporary boss Frank Lampard He was understandably crushed at the press conference after his eighth defeat in 10 matches for which he was responsible.

“My personal feeling? “I don’t think it has to do with my personal feelings, I think it probably has to do with the reality of where we are.”

“I’ve said this a lot when going into the game when things were closed during a season for us – you can probably watch it back to pre-season – and then it’s not easy to reverse it.

“Then when you face the best clubs trying to do something, nothing is certain in this game.

“Mixed feelings. We played well in the episodes today, there were some individual performances in the game, I think if these are worked on, they can be good shots for the future.

“But of course the truth is, when you come to Manchester United and how clinical they were in front of goal, how non-clinical we were, how badly we defended individually in the second half, then the result can come.”
