A video featuring Antony and Amad Diallo in training has been posted by Man Utd, igniting a heated debate

Manchester United has ignited a heated debate within their fan base by sharing a training clip on social media.

The Red Devils staged a remarkable comeback against Aston Villa on Tuesday, overcoming a 2-0 deficit to secure a 3-2 victory at Old Trafford.

Supporters are optimistic that this performance marks a pivotal moment in Erik ten Hag’s team’s resurgence, especially after exits from the Champions League and Carabao Cup. However, ahead of United’s upcoming match against Nottingham Forest on Saturday, the Dutch manager might face selection dilemmas.

Amad Diallo, who has been sidelined since July due to a severe knee injury, showcased his agility in training and is now fit and available for Ten Hag. This development has prompted fans to advocate for the 21-year-old winger to be given an opportunity over Antony.

The debate originated from a club-posted video featuring both players engaging in a 1v1 challenge, where they had to outmaneuver the defender and score into a small-sized goal. The video can be viewed below.

In the clip, Amad beats his man for pace before smashing the ball home. Whereas Antony took far longer to beat his man but did eventually find the net.

The video has led to a mass debate amongst fans, with many supporters believing Amad’s direct style is better suited to United.

Replying to the video, one person tweeted: “See how Amad Diallo put the ball at the back of the net faster? Compare it with what Antony was doing.”

Another wrote: “Man, just look at the difference between Amad and Antony. Can’t wait to have Amad fully fit!”

While a third chimed in: “The difference between Amad’s 1v1 and #21’s made me burst out laughing LMAO.”

A fourth added: “Amad should play Antonty dropped.. there are levels in sharpness and speed.”

A fifth remarked: “The efficiency of Amad by comparison shows why he needs to stay and play!”

While another wrote: “Amad using both feet and Antony (£80m) using one is the sad reality here.”

It would appear unlikely either player will be handed a start against Nottingham Forest, after Marcus Rashford, Alejandro Garnacho and Rasmus Hojlund all combined brilliantly in United’s second half comeback against Aston Villa.

However, both Amad and Antony could make useful substitutions off the bench, leaving Ten Hag with a decision to make.
