“A second start in United colours brought not one, but two goals for Nigerian loanee Odion Ighalo. He’d doubled United’s advantage with a controlled left-footed finish in the first half, and doubled his tally with a belter in the second period. Having started the move with some neat control on the edge of the Derby 18-yard line, he then latched on to Juan Mata’s centre. Derby cleared his first goal-bound effort, but when it fell back to the fan favourite, he smashed an emphatic shot into the roof of the net,”reads a statement on the website.

“The third of Ighalo’s left-footed strikes in March was arguably his best yet. The 30-year-old had plenty to do when Bruno Fernandes’s flipped pass found him in a central area outside the LASK box, with several defenders around him. But a magical piece of ball-juggling found him a yard, and that was all he needed. A magnificent rocket of a shot left the keeper with no chance, crashing into the net off the bar in dramatic style.”

Ighalo faces competition from Bruno Fernandes, Luke Shaw, Anthony Martial, Scott Mc Tominay, Charlie McCann, Anthony Elanga, Mason Greenwood and James Garner for the award

The winner will be announced on Saturday.
