United will travel to Goodison Park in an encounter that will see Carlo Ancelotti’s men lock horns with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys in their quest for a top-four spot. And Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas believed the encounter would require more physical struggle because of the Toffees’ physical gameplay under the Italian manager, tipping Ighalo to do the rescue magic upfront.

“This is a great game. . . I see a fairly physical game, as the crowd will want it that way, and I cannot separate them,” Nicholas said.
Ighalo: “Mary always prayed I would sign for United. Even when she came to watch me in the Premier League playing for Watford she hoped I would join United. The painful part for me is that I now have signed for United, but she is not here to see it.” #mufc [Sun]

“Anthony Martial may not be fit, but Odion Ighalo needs game time. His goal on Thursday will have helped but he does look rusty. The pace up front then becomes a headache. Odion Ighalo pulled the trigger for Manchester United during the 5-0 demolition of Belgians side Club Brugge at Old Trafford on Thursday night, February 27. The 30-year-old Nigerian forward was in his prolific form, netting his first goal as the Red Devils sent Clubb Brugge out of the UEFA Europa Cup through the second leg encounter. Ighalo made his first appearances for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side during a thrilling 2-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge before coming in for subbed Anthony Martial in the first encounter of EEL against Club Brugge in Belgium. Ighalo will hope to make the game as a starter and add to his tally for Manchester United against the Toffees.
