Fans are expressing a common sentiment about Antony following Gabriel Martinelli’s exceptional performance

Fans did not hold back in their criticism of Manchester United’s Antony after witnessing Gabriel Martinelli’s standout performance for Arsenal against Nottingham Forest.

In Arsenal’s season opener for the 2023/24 Premier League campaign, Martinelli took center stage as the Gunners secured a 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest at the Emirates Stadium.

Martinelli showcased his exceptional skills by orchestrating a moment of brilliance that led to his team’s opening goal.

He expertly maneuvered past two defenders before providing a precise pass to Eddie Nketiah, who found the back of the net.

In addition to his remarkable assist, the Brazilian forward consistently posed a threat and was a constant presence on the field, delivering an outstanding performance that left a strong impact.

This contrast in performance between Martinelli and Antony of Manchester United prompted fans to direct their critical remarks toward Antony’s performance.

He was praised by fans on social media, with people online mocking Antony. They claimed the Arsenal star is ‘clear’ of the Man United winger in a ruthless assessment.

One Twitter user wrote: “Martinelli is who Manchester United fans think Antony is.”

A second tweeted: “Martinelli is the Brazilian Manchester United fans wish Antony is.”

A third added: “Don’t you ever compare that fidget spinner Antony to Martinelli ever again.”

A fourth commented: “Martinelli is clear of Antony.”

Another said: “Martinelli is who Antony thinks he is.”

The 22-year-old scored 15 league goals last season as Arsenal finished behind Manchester City in the table.

He looks to be in fine form and appears on course to enjoy another prolific term.

Antony, on the other hand, scored just four league goals in his debut season in England, having played fewer games than his counterpart.
