Odion Jude Ighalo started his first game for Manchester United in the English League Cup game against Luton Town on Tuesday.
Goals from Juan Mata, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford made sure that Manchester United triumphed 3-0 and qualified for the next Round. Although Ighalo couldn’t find the back of the net but contributed particulary in the first half of the encounter.
After the match Ighalo said: “It was a very tough game,” said the Nigerian attacker.
“We knew, from the start, that we were coming to play a tough side. We are happy we are going through to the next round – that is the most important thing. “We’ve not started the league very well, but we’ve won today and I think it’s a boost for this weekend’s game against Brighton. We’ll go there and try to win and start the Premier League”
Next up for Manchester United will be a Premier League game against Brighton.
