Few players at Man Utd have been as under-utilised as Andreas Pereira this season. After a strong pre-season, the midfielder looked to be the next young Man Utd star to graduate into the first team on a long-term basis.
However, very quickly he fell out of favour under Jose Mourinho, and even under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, his involvement has been limited for much of the season.

That said, he did get a chance to feature against Southampton on Saturday, and he seriously impressed. He scored a goal and offered an assist during his 82 minutes on the field, and that’s a testament to his performance. Though it was only his 4th start of the season, the young midfielder looked very comfortable indeed.
Unsurprisingly, then, lots of Man Utd fans online were very impressed by him. Indeed, after a post celebrating his performance over on the Red Devils’ official Twitter page, plenty of fans were quick to praise the midfielder.
It seems pretty clear that they want to see a lot more of him in the coming weeks. See below:
It was an absolute banger I was sat just to the right of the goal at the Stretford end and the scenes bloody brilliant what a cracking goal
