Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo opened the scoring against LASK with a superb strike and naturally loads of Red Devils have been praising his sensational performance on Twitter.
The Nigerian forward took a pass at his feet from Bruno Fernandes, switched the ball from his right foot to the left, and smashed it into the top left-hand corner of the goal.
Ighalo was substituted at 85 minutes and finished the Europa League first-leg victory with a goal, an assist, a staggering 100% pass accuracy rate, 5 successful dribble attempts and a high statistical rating of 8.5 via SofaScore.
The 30-year-old has scored in every game he has started for Manchester United this season, netting 4 goals in 3 starts, including registering a brace against Derby County in the FA Cup earlier this month (Transfermarkt).
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side cruised to a comfortable 5-0 win over the Austrian side, with additional goals from Daniel James, Juan Mata, Mason Greenwood and Andreas Pereira.
Should Man Utd sign Igahlo permanently?
Many supporters were seriously impressed by Ighalo’s stunning finish with several insisting the board should sign the centre-forward permanently in the summer. One supporter even dubbed him “the beast.”
