Word is doing the rounds on Twitter that Andreas Pereira is out of the Manchester United squad to take on Burnley in the Premier League this afternoon.
It’s not entirely clear what the source of this rumour is, though it seems fans are reacting to the fact that the youngster has not been seen travelling with the United squad for the game at Turf Moor.
Pereira shone for the Red Devils in pre-season after returning from loan, while the club’s other midfielders haven’t exactly done much to keep him out of the side.
Summer signing Fred has been slow to get going, while Paul Pogba looks low on confidence so far as United have lost two of their opening three league matches.
Jose Mourinho must be under pressure to get things back on track this afternoon, and that pressure will surely grow if it’s true Pereira isn’t involved.
These fans are not at all happy with the news that the 22-year-old looks set to be left out, and are raging at Mourinho on Twitter…
Scott McTominay in matchday squad. Pereira left out completely again #MUFC

Disgrace. Pereira was the one positive on tour playing for the badge whilst McTominay played like a postman on work experience. Baffling

It’s an absolute disgrace that a player as good as Andreas Pereira is being left out of our squad in place of Scott MacTominay?

I feel bad for Pereira. Imagine not getting into the squad because of a sauceless McTominay.
