Breaking- Ighalo Makes First United Start Against Club Brugge At Old Trafford

Manchester United's deadline day signing, Odion Ighalo has been called upon by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to lead the front role in today's Europa League clash with Club Brugge.

The Nigeria born striker, who was signed on loan until the end of the season from Shanghai Shenhua in January will be making his first start since joining the club.

Ighalo comes into the team in place of Anthony Martial, who scored United's goal in the 1-1 first-leg draw of the last-32 tie but is not in the squad for the return match at Old Trafford.

There is also a first start since December 26 for Scott McTominay, who returned to action in the 3-0 Premier League win over Watford last weekend after recovering from a knee injury.

Eric Bailly returns to the center of defense for his first appearance in Europe of the season, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka is in at right-back, having spent the first leg among the substitutes.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made seven changes overall from the first leg, with Victor Lindelof, Brandon Williams, Nemanja Matic, and Jesse Lingard dropping to the bench and Andreas Pereira and Diogo Dalot, not in the squad.

Sergio Romero starts in goal instead of David de Gea, as he did in Belgium.

Let's hope he breaks the deadlock by scoring his first goal for the Red Devils.
