Manchester United Superstar Fernandes Namechecks Ighalo As He Discusses Quality Players On Bench
Manchester United superstar Bruno Fernandes namechecked Odion Ighalo as he discussed about the quality players manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can call upon from the bench.

The Norwegian football tactician is not expected to make alterations to his starting lineup in attack when Southampton visit Old Trafford on Monday evening, and this would see the ex- Nigeria international being named among the substitutes for the umpteenth time for a Premier League match.

Highly-rated teenager Mason Greenwood, Frenchman Anthony Martial and England star Marcus Rashford have scored a combined 56 goals between them in all competitions this term.

Five months after his arrival at Manchester United, Ighalo is still waiting to make his full Premier League debut but has been one of their key players in Cup competitions, netting five goals in his first four starts.

Speaking to the official website of the Red Devils, Fernandes explained : "We have a lot of quality on the bench - Odion [Ighalo] scored in the cup against Norwich and we also have players like Dan James, Jesse [Lingard], Juan [Mata], Chongy [Tahith Chong].

"So we know when we’re tired and we need some freshness, we have a lot of players for the end of the season. It's easy to play with these kind of players".

Manchester United, who are currently fifth in the table with 58 points, can squeeze a Champions League finish if they win their last four games of the season.
