Odion Ighalo included in Manchester United team squad for Chelsea clash



Nigerian born striker “Odion Ighalo” have been listed in the Manchester United team squad that will tackle league rival Chelsea next Monday.
It was revealed that the 30-year-old striker recently joined the English club Manchester United on loan until the end of the season on the eve of deadline day last month from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.
Manchester United confirmed on  Saturday in a statement that Odion Ighalo had been left out of the Spain squad to avoid any potential problems related to the current killer virus on re-entry to Britain. However, head coach of Manchester United Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed in the club's website that Odion Ighalo will be in the squad for a match that could have a crucial bearing on who finishes in the top four this term and qualifies for the Champions League next season.
"Yeah, he is going to travel with us," said Solskjaer.
"We will just see his fitness work this week and I think we will get him sharp.
"We want to integrate him as quickly as we can because, of course, he is desperate to play for us."
Odion Ighalo, who has plied his soccer tradel in China for the past three years after joining Changchun Yatai from Watford, was signed as emergency cover for the injured Marcus Rashford.
Currently in the league table , Chelsea presently occupy the fourth and final Champions League spot and are six points clear of eighth-placed United.
From all indications, the other three Champions League places look destined for Liverpool, Manchester City and third-placed Leicester, who have a 10 point advantage over fifth-placed Sheffield United and a game in hand to boot.
