The Sporting Lisbon loanee leads the Championship assist charts with 10 as mentioned in the tweet above, with Pereira having one of the games of his career last weekend as the Brazilian attacker scored one and assisted three for the Baggies in their 5-1 win against Swansea City.
Is Matheus Pereira the best player in the Championship?
Pereira has been a sensation for West Brom this season, and the 23-year-old has asserted himself as a fan favourite at the Hawthorns, and supporters on social media are borderline in love with the Brazillian attacker who is proving his quality this year in the Championship.
Here’s what West Brom fans had to say about the Sporting loanee on Twitter, with lots of supporters praising Pereira for his impact on the squad this season…
Biggest baller in the league
