MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester United forward Antony was taken off on a stretcher after sustaining an injury during the first half of his team’s Premier League game against Chelsea. The Brazil international looked in distress as he left the field at Old Trafford in the 29th minute. It was not immediately clear what part of the body Antony hurt but he went down after a challenge from Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah.
