Manchester United fans couldn’t withhold their disgust with Andreas Pereira after his stunningly poor performance in the draw with Wolves.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were in desperate need of a win not just for the sake of it but also because it would’ve closed the game on fourth-placed Chelsea who had dropped points themselves earlier today.
Pereira started in midfield due to Nemanja Matic’s suspension following his sending off with Manchester City mid-week and it’s safe to say he failed to impress.
The academy product’s form of late has been incredibly lacking of quality and fans have consistently struggled to understand why he features at all.
Solskjaer perhaps feels as though he doesn’t have alternatives but surely on the back of tonight’s performance he would rather start a youngster in his place.
Andreas Pereira is so, so frustrating to watch.

I walked out early, in protest of Pereira.

Andreas Pereira is one of the most frustrating players I've ever watched. I would rather play Jesse Lingard in his position. That tells you everything you need to know.

Disgusts me that Bruno has to go CDM and Pereira goes to AM because Pereira can't do the job

What is an Andreas Pereira? What does an Andreas Pereira do?

TAKE OFF ANDREAS PEREIRA. HE IS NOT A BLOODY LEFT-WINGER. HE IS NOT A MIDFIELDER. HE IS A SPECTATOR ON THE PITCH. HE IS PISSING ME OFF.

It’s difficult to justify Pereira’s inclusions anymore, especially since he’s featured regularly this season and hardly ever had an impressive match.
To argue in his favour, the versatile Brazilian has played across numerous positions and hasn’t been allowed to settle in one long enough to bear the fruit of his labour.
Solskjaer must find Pereira’s best position or not play him at all but how things are currently being done is neither helpful nor sustainable.
