Ighalo picked up the ball on the edge of the box, juggled the ball past a couple of defenders to work some space and then rifled home off the crossbar and in.
There was no crowd to witness it as the UEFA Europa League Round of 16 first leg game was played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus outbreak. Odion Ighalo may not score a better goal in a Man United shirt.

With goals like this, surely Ighalo’s loan will made into a permanent move in the summer?
¡Chulada, Ighalo demostró su talento!👏
