Unable to play against Leicester on Thursday night, Antony’s arrival before the weekend deadline means he will be eligible to make his Premier League debut in the next round of fixtures (gameweek six) when United are at home to league leaders Arsenal.
The Brazilian is automatically the second most expensive United midfielder in FPL behind Bruno Fernandes at £9.8m and ahead of Jadon Sancho at £7.3m. The highest priced player in the United squad is Cristiano Ronaldo at £10.3m. No United defenders are priced more than £4.8m.
Other recent new additions to FPL include new West Ham signing Lucas Paqueta, who made his debut on Wednesday, priced £6.0m. Meanwhile, Newcastle arrival Alexander Isak is valued at £7.0m and already got seven points from his goalscoring debut against Liverpool this week.
New Manchester City centre-back Manuel Akanji, signed from Borussia Dortmund on transfer deadline day, has entered the game at £5.0m.
