Earlier, Legit.ng reported that it can be a perfect weekend for Odion Ighalo should he score this weekend when Man United welcome Watford to Old Trafford in a Premier League fixture.
Ighalo will be making his home debut for Man United and could be handed his first start by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer against his former club.
But there is something extra should the Nigerian striker score in this encounter.
He could become the first player to score on their first home Premier League appearance for a club, having previously played for the opponents in the competition, since Frank Lampard did so for Man City against Chelsea in September 2014.
Odion Ighalo scored 16 goals in 55 Premier League appearances for Watford between 2015-2017 before leaving to pursue a career in the Chinese Super League.
