Antony missed United’s victory over Fulham on the final day of the Premier League season with an ankle injury.

And Erik ten Hag, who will be without Anthony Martial due to a hamstring injury sustained at Old Trafford, revealed the winger is also unlikely to feature at Wembley.

But despite the potential absentees, Ten Hag is confident United have the strength in depth and quality to cope.

“Antony still has a chance, but it’s a really small chance,” he told his pre-match press conference.

“He did make the progress. So what I say is he still has a chance, but either unlikely he is available.

“It’s about the players who are available. We have a good squad and from a good squad, we make a good team.”
