The tackle was not deemed a foul by the ref but Antony lay on the ground in clear distress.
After a few minutes of treatment on the pitch, the Brazilian was carried off by medical staff and replaced by Marcus Rashford.
He held his hands over his face while being carried off.
United’s problems would get worse at half-time when Luke Shaw also went off with injury.
The left-back was taken off with a slight back issue and replaced by Tyrell Malacia.
The moment now throws Antony‘s participation for the rest of the season into major doubt.
United’s final game of the season is at home against Fulham before the first ever Manchester derby FA Cup final six days later.
Antony has been a regular starter all season long for Erik ten Hag who now may be left to reshuffle his pack if the 23-year-old is not available.

In his debut season at Old Trafford, Antony has four goals and two assists in 25 Premier League matches.
He arrived for £85m last summer as he followed ten Hag from Ajax.
But the star has split opinion among the fanbase in his debut season.
His injury occurred with United already 1-0 up.
Casemiro scored a header from a free-kick within the opening minutes of a frantic game.
But a very open first half-hour saw Chelsea spurn multiple chances in front of goal.
