Man Utd news: Solskjaer drops Odion Ighalo debut hint as loanee bids to face Chelsea | Football | Sport


“We’ve kept in touch with him. We’ve done our own programme, he’s done his, and it was always going to be a case of him having to integrate with us, having been out in China.

“He needs to get used to the players, the team, up to speed as quick as he can, he’s been working really hard.

“I think he’s been pinching himself at times, being at his favourite club at the age of 30, but he’s earned that one and hopefully he impresses us so we can see him play.

“The injury to Marcus [Rashford], it has to be said, we needed another forward and when we got the chance to get Odion on a loan that was for us a goalscorer.

“He was the top scorer at the African Cup of Nations last year, so he can help the club, he’s very professional, a good lad and will give something to the group.”

Solskjaer, meanwhile, has urged his United players to beat Frank Lampard’s Blues and narrow down the gap to the top four – which currently stands at six points – going into the final 12 matches of the season.
