Pereira now Man Utd top scorer - with Flamengo

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is in career best form on-loan with Flamengo.

Pereira has five Serie A goals in just 16 league appearances, including his first just three minutes into his debut after a horror backpass and a superb free-kick.

And Pereira, 25, grabbed his latest this weekend with a fine acrobatic finish after arriving into the box with perfect timing.

His tally of five league goals dwarfs his effort of two Premier League goals in 45 Manchester United appearances.

And it is better than anyone at his parent club has managed in 2021-22.

Cristiano Ronaldo is their joint No1 talisman in front of goal in the league with four goals.
