Premier League

Ole gets a huge boost for Liverpool's clash, plus Donny's possible start, and the latest on Pereira

Despite the fact that all eyes are on the Manchester United vs. Liverpool match, here are some of the other top stories from Manchester. 

Andreas Pereira is well-liked by Manchester United fans, despite the fact that his playing time significantly dropped since the arrival of Bruno Fernandes, which resulted in his loan move away. He is currently on loan at Flamengo, where he is making a name for himself in the Brazilian football scene. When asked about Pereira's progress and future prospects recently, Solskjaer was optimistic about his chances at Manchester United. His admission was, "Last year, Andreas went on loan, he didn’t play enough. The season before, he played a lot for us, but then we signed Bruno [Fernandes]. And I’m happy for him now and I’ll see him soon. [On his future with Manchester United]Of course. When he keeps on playing like he can do, at his best level, he’s a top player." Is Pereira a midfield alternative that Ole should explore for his team? Only time will tell if this is true.

Donny Van De Beek has been waiting for his Premier League debut all season, and what a tricky way to make his debut than against Liverpool at the Theater of Dreams. Van De Beek could start because Bruno Fernandes is out with an injury and is a doubt for the Liverpool game. Last season, Bruno's direct swoop was Van De Beek, so if Ole values Van De Beek's talent, he may be able to put him in the thick of things. If he does not go with Van De Beek, Pogba or Lingard could fill in as playmakers in Bruno's absence.

Although Bruno Fernandes is a doubt for the Liverpool game, Fred and Rashford, who appeared injured against Atalanta, may be able to play. Ole revealed the following on the Manchester United website about Rashford's fitness: "[Atalanta injury scare] It was a dead leg and sometimes it can take longer than what you want. But if we treat it well, he should be okay."
