Jeremy Doku has fired a dig at Antony after their clash during Manchester City’s 3-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s side delivered a dominant display at Old Trafford as two goals from Erling Haaland and Phil Foden’s late strike sealed the victory for the Premier League champions.

Antony was brought on as a late substitute with City already three goals ahead and the Brazil international quickly lost his cool as he kicked out at Doku on United’s right flank.

Doku held up his finger at Antony, while Mateo Kovacic stepped in to diffuse the situation before the United winger was shown a yellow card by referee Paul Tierney.

And in a post on X after the game, Doku posted a picture of his clash with Antony alongside the message: ‘Stay calm. Manchester is blue.’

Meanwhile, Gary Neville branded Antony ’embarrassing’ for his swipe at Doku.

‘Doku’s absolutely right, Antony just has a kick at him,’ Neville said during his commentary for Sky Sports.

‘Absolutely right, Doku. United have lost their discipline. That’s absolutely ridiculous, I’d just send him off.

‘It’s absolutely ridiculous from Antony, it’s embarrassing.’
