We have written recently how Andreas Pereira’s Manchester United prospects look bleak.
He has not even made United’s bench in recent weeks, despite injuries to teammates and Scott McTominay’s continued omission.
It’s possible that a fortnight working with Jose Mourinho and his staff over the international break has done him some good.
He uploaded an image to his Instagram page, with a cryptic message which read ‘We have lift off’.

Pereira has not started a game for United since being substituted at half-time during the defeat to Brighton in August.
He had been in the line up for the opening night win against Leicester City at Old Trafford.
It’s possible this one could be a little different, with his message hinting at a possible chance against Palace at the weekend.
Let’s hope he is not setting himself up for more disappointment.
