Newcastle United 1-0 Manchester United: 5 Men who were poor for the Red Devils | Premier League 2019/20
#4 Andreas Pereira
The Brazilian continued to be a part of the makeshift front three that had been used extensively by Solskjaer of late but had been unable to impress. Andreas Pereira failed to have too much impact from the right and soon shifted to the left side. Unfortunately though, the Brazilian struggled on the other side of the pitch as well, and it hurt United on the day.
Pereira was sloppy with his passing and his decision making was also not up to the mark. He did manage to hit the target once in the game but was hardly a threat going forward. The Brazilian had only 43 touches on the ball and ended the with a 79% passing success rate, and did not register a single key pass in the whole game. Pereira was also not too effective with his off the ball pressing and he only registered a 33% tackle success rate.Published 07 Oct 2019, 01:16 IST
