Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo came on in the 78th minute as replacement for Anthony Martial, but he was unable to score for the Red Devils as the match ended 1-1.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how 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.
