West Brom fans gush over their loan ace Matheus Pereira

West Bromwich Albion’s quest to return to the promised land of the Premier League is looking more and more likely under Slaven Bilic.

The Baggies currently occupy top spot going into the final international break of the calendar year, and they do so holding a two-point cushion over the chasing pack of Preston North End and Leeds United.

At their current rate, the west Midlands club should surpass a points total of 92, which has been enough for automatic promotion in four of the last five Championship campaigns.

Integral to their season so far and their future ambitions is Matheus Pereira, who joined the club on deadline day on loan – he has since gone on to score three goals and provide six assists in 11 starts, per WhoScored.

Some of the Hawthorns faithful have been describing his season to date on social media this week.

One supporter claimed he was the best player in the league while another believed he was a better version of Cristiano Ronaldo, even though this was more than likely said tongue in cheek, both players did come through the academy system at Sporting Lisbon.

A further fan of the Baggies stated that Pereira was ‘a must signing’ in the January transfer window with one more calling the 23-year-old ‘very exciting’ on his day.
