Odion Ighalo Usurps Zlatan Ibrahimovic To Equal 95-year Man Utd Record by Amotolongbo(f): 7:38am On Jun 30
The Nigerian striker scored the Red Devils' opening goal in the 2-1 victory over Norwich in their FA Cup quarter-final clash on Saturday


Odion Ighalo entered the Manchester United record books on Saturday and became only the second player in the club's history to score in each of his first four competitive starts following his strike in the 2-1 win against Norwich.


The Nigerian forward has been a big hit since signing on loan from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua in January, scoring five goals and creating one assist in all competitions.

He has particularly impressed in the cup competitions, and his strikes in his four starts against Club Brugge, Derby, LASK and Norwich see him equal the record set by Jimmy Hanson in 1925, according to Opta.


It means Ighalo could break the record in the next game he starts, which could be against Brighton on Tuesday, although he has yet to score in the Premier League.

Swedish legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored in his first three starts against Leicester, Bournemouth and Southampton in the 2016-17 season, but then failed to score in the 1-0 win over Hull.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was clearly delighted with Ighalo's goal against Norwich, which set them on their way to a late victory in extra time.

Speaking after the game, he said: "He's a proven goalscorer and played his part in both goals. He is a great person to have around the dressing room too.

“Odion knows how much we value him in and around the dressing room; he’s a goalscorer, a poacher, he’s strong, we can play the ball into him, he showed for the second and Paul [Pogba] found him.”

United will discover their opponents for the semi-final of the competition on Sunday evening, and will no doubt fancy their chances of winning their first piece of silverware under Solskjaer given their fine recent form.

Real glad for Ighalo, fufilling his childhood dreams in his 30s. Who would've thought he'll land a spell in old Trafford from the Chinese league. Nothing really is impossible.

*_"When your salary comes in time, you eat chicken. As the salary reduces you eat products of Chicken (Eggs) and subsequently you begin to eat chicken's food, (maize and millet), and finally, when salary is finished, you become chicken itself, spending your time walking around just looking for what to eat"!_*

Great! Finally, he's shaming the doubting Thomases and those Mocking Manchester United about the planned move back then. They laughed at us, said he was gonna be a big flop and said United will end up regretting etc.. Now they're all finally shutting their mouths up with excellent performances... Na so God dey take shame person enemies.. I never for once had doubt about him when I heard United were going to loan him. smiley
