The versatile Brazilian had impressed in pre-season and even grabbed an assist after being handed an unexpected start.
The midfield prospect will surely be hoping to finally have a breakthrough season for United and he won’t get a better time than now.
Andreas: “I feel stronger than ever and more confident under this manager. We have to keep our feet on the ground and work hard. I feel great, we feel great to win like this at home." #mulive [scmp]

Under Jose Mourinho, Pereira was utilised all over the pitch but mostly as a defensive midfielder in a role that didn’t get the best out of him.
Solskjaer has also taken advantage of the dazzling youngster’s versatility but the Norwegian manager mostly handed him minutes further forward.
The question is whether Pereira can continue taking advantage of the game time he receives, especially if his manager plays a 4-3-3 consistently.
After all, Solskjaer had mostly opted for a 4-2-3-1 throughout pre-season and so that may diminish his opportunities a little given the position would be given to someone else.
