Man Utd midfielder Pereira hoping to settle on one role

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is eager to establish himself in one, set position.

Pereira has been an integral part of the first-team this season, with only Harry Maguire and Fred having featured more times this campaign, and the Brazilian midfielder is hoping to prove his worth as an attacking midfielder in years to come.

He said: "The start of the season was good for me -- I started a lot of games. In December and January, I felt a bit tired because I'd played a lot of games in a row. I had to cope with that. It was the first season, really, that I did that at United.

"I've played a lot of different positions, and when I've played in my favourite position as an attacking midfielder, I played well, I was important and created a lot of occasions. That's my goal: to play in my position more often and show the manager I can be important there."
