Is there still anyone out there who thinks that West Brom star Matheus is not the best player in the EFL? If so, they are wrong.
Pereira, 24, put in one of his best performances in English football on Sunday as he bagged a hat-trick of assists in West Brom’s 4-2 win against Hull City at The Hawthorns.
Charlie Austin, Ahmed Hegazi and Kamil Grosicki all have the Brazilian loanee to thank for setting up their goals as Hull simply failed to cope with his playmaking abilities.
It is no surprise at all to see so many West Brom fans singing their praises of Pereira, with some even going as far to say that the attacker is the best player in the league.
Leeds fans might argue it’s Kalvin Phillips. Fulham fans might argue it’s Aleksandar Mitrovic and Brentford fans might argue it’s Said Benrahama.
But there is no denying that a player who has assisted 19 goals in the Championship this season – as well as scoring eight of his own – has to be considered the best.
On Sunday, Albion would have struggled to win that game without Pereira and we cannot believe how well Luke Dowling and Slaven Bilic have done to ensure he’ll be at the club next season.
These Baggies fans don’t seem to be able to believe their luck too and here is a selection of their tweets:
Pereira is 10/10 today without a shadow of doubt
