Ole Solskjaer who is the manager of Manchester United has encouraged Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo to start from where he stopped before the season was suspended.

Odion Ighalo was in good form for Manchester United and was ready to soar before the Premier League was put on hold due to the serious issues affecting the whole world.

And now that the Premier League is back with Manchester City beating Arsenal on Wednesday night, Odion Ighalo and his teammates are also preparing for their next game against Spurs.

But one thing that Odion Ighalo should have at the back of his mind is the fact that Marcus Rashford is back and there will be a good competition between them.

Ighalo has so far scored four goals for Manchester United, but he is yet to net in the Premier League and will be hoping he scores if he gets the chance to face Spurs.

While speaking in a press conference, Ole Solskjaer explained that Odion Ighalo proved beyond reasonable doubt that he is a good striker.

“We’re delighted Odion is staying with us. We had a good conversation with his club and Odion’s made a great impact when he came, so that’s very pleasing.

”He gives us another option up front, he is a goalscorer and what he does in and around the dressing room as well is great. I hope he’s going to continue and finish off what he has started,'' Solskjaer explained.

And that will be a painful one for Paul Pogba considering the fact that the Frenchman will want to start against the team being handled by his former manager Jose Mourinho.

The France international has been training hard since he recuperated fully from injury and also played in Manchester United's closed doors friendly games.

Pogba has not played any professional game for Manchester United since December 26 last year and this made the Red Devils to even sign Bruno during the January transfer window.
