‘I can do things that other strikers can not do at United’ – Ighalo.

Published

on

Former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo,  says he offers a different quality to Manchester United’s attack that fellow strikers Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial do not possess.

Ighalo, who was speaking with United Review programme, said he could play as a striker with his back to the goal. The Nigerian has scored five times in four starts for United since moving on loan from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua in January. “Anthony Martial is very skillful. He’s a direct striker. He likes to play with the ball at his feet,” Ighalo said. “Rashy (Marcus Rashford) likes to run in behind. I think I bring different things to the strikers we have.

 

“I can play with my back to goal, I can keep the ball. I’m strong so it’s different, you know, and for the different games, we play different patterns and with different strategies. “So it’s good to have different types of striker in order to accomplish what you want.” He added, “I think I’ve gained more experience now and I push my game a little bit more than when I was at Watford.

 

“I think I’m even stronger now than I was then and have a bit more fighting ability to give, plus I have the experience to do what it takes on the field to score goals and to help the team. I feel I have improved from then to now,” he added.

Liverpool clinch monumental victory against Leicester City with a 3-0 victory

Published

Liverpool despite all odds came out tops in what was a totally dominating game against Leicester City.

 

The Reds showed why they are the defending champions with a superb display of attacking football even at the expense of losing six first team players.

 

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Oxlade Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and top score for the Reds this season Mo Salh were all out prior to this game, due to injury reservations.

 

But Jurgern Klopp’s side still proved what they were made of with a scoreline of 3-0 against former champions Leicester City.

 

An own goal coming from Jonny Evans at the 21st minute opened the scoring for the Reds, while later on the first half Diogo Jota doubled their lead with a sublime finish that went past Kasper Schmeicel.

 

The Foxes did try to lunge at the Reds, but the defensive manuvers brought forth by youngster Curtis Jones blocked every tactic they used.

 

Jamie Vardy was totally frustrated throughout the game, as Liverpool cut him off from all forms of creative touches, leaving the striker zoned out throughout the game.

 

The second 45 saw a penalty appeal for Liverpool when Namaplays Mendy fouled Jota in the box, that wad not given while the injury crises at Anfield increases as Naby Keita was taken off on account of a sprain.

 

Roberto Firmino also made his mark by giving Liverpool the last and winning goal at the 80th minute, converting a James Milner freekick and heading home with a goal for him, after his lack of goals this season.

 

This game makes it Liverpool’s 64th victory at Anfield- an unprecendented record for Klopp’s men, and also sees them go to second place, behind Tottenham Hotspur.

 

 

Liverpool and Leicester both have midweek games in European Competitions, and will return to the Premier League as Leicester take on Fulham while the defending champions battle against Brighton.
