Andreas Pereira produced a moment of magic to give Manchester United the lead against Liverpool tonight in the Under-21s Barclays Premier League semi-final.
The Belgian picked up the ball outside of Liverpool’s box and unleashed a beautifully crafted curled finish that nestled into the top corner. Pick that one out.
Pereira is capable of producing moments of magic like this which is why Warren Joyce has stuck with him this season despite quite a few underwhelming performances.
That goal gives Manchester United a slender 1-0 lead at half time and we are 45 minutes away from a potential final against Manchester City, should they beat Chelsea in their semi-final.
