Fan Hilariously Dubs Over Anthony Martial's Conversation With Andreas Pereira

Fan Hilariously Dubs Over Anthony Martial's Conversation With Andreas Pereira

One fan has hilariously brought insight into a conversation between Anthony Martial and Andreas Pereira at the end of Manchester United's win over FK Partizan on Thursday.

The Europa League game gave United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a much needed lift as Martial, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford scored in their 3-0 win.

At full time Martial could be seen having a long conversation with midfielder Pereira and one fan has brilliantly dubbed his take on what the Frenchman was saying, seems pretty spot on.

United have had issues with scoring this season and before last night had only scored two goals in their opening three Europa League games and not had a shot on target in open play since their Matchday One game against Astana in September.

Part of their issue had been Martial's injury, which kept him out for several weeks, with the 23-year-old having scored five in his past seven starts for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

Another big issue has been the creativity behind the front three. Paul Pogba's extended injury has left them with a lack of options and quality in midfield.

Pereira has started nine times in the Premier League, and come off the bench in two games in Europe, but his passing starts aren't very good at all.

The Belgium born Brazilian completes just 73.4% of his passes, according to WhoScored.com, leaving him 198th in the list of Premier League players, and manages just 1.2 key passes per game.

With just 22.2 passes per game it also suggests he doesn't get on the ball often enough either and with just one assist so far this season he clearly isn't contributing to the team enough.

Solskjaer could lose his most influential midfielder so far this season, Scott McTominay, for the match against Brighton at the weekend.

The Scot went off hobbling down the tunnel during Thursday's game although after the match the manager was hopeful McTominay would be available for Sunday saying, "It didn't look too good, he went over on his ankle.

"He said he was going to be OK but then he couldn't [carry on] but hopefully he will OK for Sunday."
