Andreas Pereira congratulates Man Utd team-mates after Southampton match

by Sam Peoples

Andreas Pereira has congratulated his Manchester United team-mates on Twitter after their fifth consecutive win took them to third position in the Premier League.

The 18-year-old has been in and around the first-team all season after being brought into Louis van Gaal‘s squad and although he is yet to make his Premier League debut under the Dutchman, he is edging closer with each passing week.

Van Gaal has stuck to his promise of promoting the youth at United this season and although he had to make a tough decision with Paddy McNair last night by substituting him early on, he’ll continue to do so in the future games.

Pereira’s biggest chance to get an opportunity will come at the start of January when United face either Accrington Stanley or Yeovil Town in the FA Cup and if he can impress, Perira might be able to force his way back into Van Gaal’s first team squad.
