Premier League : Ighalo Missing As Fernandes Last-Gap Penalty Seals Win  For Man United Vs  Brighton

Odion Ighalo failed to make the matchday squad as Manchester United recorded their first league win of the season following a hard fought 3-2 victory against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

Ighalo featured for nine minutes in United’s 3-1 home defeat against Crystal Palace
last weekend.

He has made two appearances across all competitions for the Red Devils this season.

Neal Maupay gave Brighton the lead from the spot in the 40th minute.

The visitors equalised three minutes later following an own goal by Lewis Dunk.

United took the lead for the first time courtesy of a fine effort from Marcus Rashford 10 minutes after the break.

Solly Marsh equalised for the home team in the fifth minute of added time.

Maupay was adjudged to have blocked Harry Maguire’s goal-bound effort with his arm at the death, and after a VAR review Bruno Fernandes dispatched a penalty of his own in the most dramatic of finales.

  • instead just wasting away on the bench all in the name of playing for boyhood club, I will strongly advice ighalo to leave that club immediately his loan expires.

    Ole has stylishly frozen him out of the squad. SMH…It is well

    Chuba Akpom has already started banging goals in the championship. He scored against QPR. The game is still on and Osayi – another Nigerian also equalized. Wishing him more goals this season

    I pray that Ighalo can get back into reckoning in Manchester United. He still offers them something different as an arrow head up front.

      I hope so too. Ole has not really given him enough opportunities in the premier league games. Why sign a player if you don’t trust in his ability?

    Why una dey pity IG…? The chap is living his dream with his “boyhood” club. People wey talk say leave when the ovation is loudest know wetin dem dey talk. It was very obvious even to the blind that the dynamics at Man U will change once the season ends and a new one starts. IG was signed to be a “back-up”…a back-up only kick-starts when the main system fails…so unless there is an injury crisis upfront at Man U….we should not expect to see Odion anywhere close to the pitch in that club (except probably agaisnt the likes of Luton in the Gbogboero-Umummadu cups).
    Go back and earn your $350k per week you say you want childhood dream….dog wey go loss nor dey hear hunter whistle.
