Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo will be gunning for his 10th Premier League appearance for Manchester United when they file out against Southampton at the Old Trafford tonight, Completesports.com reports.
Ighalo has previously featured in nine Premier League games for the Red Devils since arriving Old Trafford on the last of the January transfer window on loan from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua.
The former Super Eagles forward had scored five goals in Cup games for Man United , but he is yet to start or score in an EPL game for the Devils with manager OK Gunnar Solskjaer mostly using him as late substitute in the Premier League.
Ighalo has found himself down the pecking order, in the striker’s position with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and new sensation Mason Greenwood the preferred starters in Premier League games.
Ighalo has been involved in the last 14 matches played by United in all competition, but is yet to score in nine EPL appearances despite scoring five goals and making one assist.
