Andreas Pereira’s stunning strike against Southampton has been declared Manchester United’s Goal of the Season for 2018/19.

The Brazil international netted his first Premier League goal for the Reds in some style during our 3-2 win over the Saints at Old Trafford on 2 March.

With 52 minutes on the clock and the Reds trailing 1-0, the 23-year-old curled in a spectacular effort from outside the box in front of the Stretford End, after receiving the ball from Diogo Dalot.

Reflecting further on the goal, the Brazilian continued: "As soon as I struck the ball, to be fair I didn’t see it going in because I used the defender in front of me, but as soon as the crowd went crazy I knew it was in the back of the net."
