Manchester United fans react to Andreas Pereira performance vs Liverpool

Well, the result may not have been what we all wanted to see, but there were one or two encouraging signs; mostly coming from Andreas Pereira.

The Brazil international is partaking in his third pre-season under Jose Mourinho, the first two ended in loan moves away, but you get the impression it’s going to be different this time around.

Against Liverpool, the attacking midfielder continued his rich vein of form. It’s not just the passing ability, the trickery and the on-ball presence and awareness, it’s the fact that he doesn’t look out of place.

It’s not easy to leave a goalkeeper completely standing still from the dead-ball situation, Pereira made that look easy when he lashed one into the top corner midway through the first half

Nobody is expecting the young man to start every week, rather just make himself a key fixture in the squad whom Mourinho can rotate in and out as he sees fit. Right now, he’s certainly proven just how important he can be over the next twelve months. He deserves credit for grasping his opportunity with both hands.

As you’d imagine, the Old Trafford faithful were absolutely buzzing all over social media, check out the best reactions below:
