Odion Ighalo

The Nigerian will start as a sub against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, with Anthony Martial making the starting XI on Monday night

Odion Ighalo will start on the bench for Manchester United’s Premier League clash against Chelsea.

The ex-Nigeria international made his way back to the Premier League, having joined the Red Devils from Shanghai Shenhua on a six-month deal.

The move came to reality owing to Marcus Rashford’s back injury which will rule him out for three months.

However, he will make his debut as a substitute should he get playing time against Frank Lampard’s men.

In the process, he will become the first Nigerian player to represent the Red Devils.

Then, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be counting on the forward to wreak havoc against the Blues as they chase a top four EPL finish.
