Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Why I prefer Ighalo to Martial.


Red devil’s boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said newly signed striker Odion Ighalo has provided the striker instinct his side has been lacking since moving to Old Trafford

Ighalo opened his goal account for Man Utd in a 5-0 win over Club Brugge on Thursday in the Europa League and United will be waiting to know who they’ll play next after Friday’s draw.

“When you have a striker in, he foes what it says on the tin”, said the Man Utd boss. ” He plays upfront, we can play up to him, he can get a hold of it but the goal was a good example of what you want from Odion.” “The ball goes over him, he spins quickly, gets himself of the centre back and taps it in. It’s what we’ve been lacking a little bit.”

Ighalo could cement his place at the starting XI for Sunday’s trip to Everton since Martial is a uncertain due to a thigh injury.

Martial was with the club for the game against Club Brugge but failed a late fitness test after getting a thigh injury, Solskjaer would have to choose between Ighalo and Greenwood to start Sunday’s fixture.
