Man Utd star singled out for blame vs Liverpool

Fans single out Man Utd midfielder for blame as Liverpool grabs first half lead

January 19, 2020 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Red Devils' playmaker saw a barrage of criticism coming his way for his performance in the first half of Sunday's clash.

Manchester United fans on social media have slammed midfielder Andreas Pereira for his performance in the first half of Sunday's Premier League clash against Liverpool. The 24-year-old Brazilian saw himself making an open goal miss as his side trailed ahead of the break.

A better half was certainly expected from Pereira who ended up finding himself at the end of two unfortunate scenarios. First, the former academy star dribbled his way into Liverpool's penalty area but ruined the move by running into Daniel James having failed to deliver a shot on goal.

Moments later, the Manchester United No. 15 passed on yet another glorious opportunity to equalize for the visitors after Virgil Van Dijk had opened the scoring with a header. This time, he failed to guide home a Aaron Wan-Bissaka's cross which found him at Liverpool's gaping far post. Watch:

It is safe to say that football fans on Twitter barely enjoyed these moments considering that Pereiera has much being touted as the next big thing since his emergence from the club's academy. Having featured in 19 of the team's 23 Premier League games thus far, the Brazilian midfielder has registered just a goal and three assists.
