The 19-year-old, buoyed by his magnificent free-kick against Ipswich last week, came across stiffer opposition in the form of Wolfsburg and performed well.
Some might have seen Pereira’s introduction into a game of such magnitude as a risky move by the Dutchman but the youngster looked instantly comfortable, irrespective of his side being notably on the back-foot by the time he came on.
Seeing Pereira receive game time is a welcome sight for United fans who saw glimpses of the Brazilian’s flair and pace during pre-season. With Adnan Januzaj out on loan and injuries to other attacking players always a glaring possibility, Pereira will be confident of gaining more game time under van Gaal this season.
