Maintenance Human Performance
On departure we received an EICAS message 'left engine low pressure fuel;' all engine indications were normal. We informed dispatch and maintenance control and they wanted us to return to ZZZ to have the problem looked at. This seems to be a recurring problem with this airplane. After talking to director maintenance/maintenance they decided they wanted us to do an overweight landing; which we did in ZZZ; with no event.
