Andreas Pereira could get opportunity against Yeovil

by Sam Peoples

Louis van Gaal is likely to put out a strong Manchester United side to face Yeovil Town thanks to the painful memories of a 4-0 defeat at the hands of MK Dons in the Capital One Cup last year.

That being said, there could still be opportunities for some youngsters to impress and given that Andreas Pereira has been kept in and around the first-team all season, the Brazilian midfielder is one who may be given a chance.

Pereira made his United debut in the 4-0 defeat to MK Dons but the real progress for him is that he has become a first-team squad member under Van Gaal.

In recent weeks, Pereira has been part of United’s match day squad on the bench so is already in and around the senior side, which is indicative of his progress this year.

A game against Yeovil is the perfect opportunity for Van Gaal to play some youngsters but with painful memories of MK Dons still fresh in the mind, he won’t take too many risks.

However, Pereira has been on the fringe all season and Van Gaal wouldn’t have kept him there if he didn’t see something in him, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Pereira get to play against Yeovil.
