(Watch Video) Antony’s meltdown when asked to play left-back during win over Liverpool

Shock footage has emerged of Antony having a mini-meltdown after being asked by Erik ten Hag to play left-back during the thrilling win over Liverpool.

United’s rollercoaster 4-3 victory over their rivals in the FA Cup on Sunday was watched by Sir Alex Ferguson and two other legendary names at Old Trafford.

That dramatic late triumph secured a semi-final with Coventry as Erik ten Hag’s side remained in the hunt for silverware.

Scott McTominay got the Red Devils off to a flyer but Alexis Mac Allister and Mo Salah put the visitors ahead before the break – with both goals enraging Roy Keane.

Substitute Antony struck at the end of normal time to send the clash into extra-time, only for Harvey Elliott’s deflected effort to restore Liverpool’s lead.

Marcus Rashford then pounced late on to seemingly send it to penalties – but there would be another dramatic twist in store.

Another sub, Amad Diallo, fired home after a counter-attack in the closing seconds to win it – only for his celebrations to be cut-short after removing his shirt and getting sent-off as he picked up a second booking.

Fans were quick to praise manager Ten Hag as “meaning business” after they spotted four tactical changes he made as United chased the game – including Bruno Fernandes going to centre-half and Antony at left-back.

The Brazilian winger was moved to the unfamiliar role after Elliott’s goal as the Dutch coach went all-out to try and salvage something.

The switches occurred at the break in extra-time as midfielder Mason Mount came off the bench in place of centre-half Victor Lindelof.
