Ighalo missing in action as Obafemi’s goal chained Man United to fifth

Odion Ighalo watched from the bench as Manchester United played out a 2 – 2 draw with Southampton at Saint Mary on Monday.

The Nigerian is yet to start a premier league game for the Red Devils since joining the club six months ago, although he has made seven substitute appearances in the league.


While Ighalo was watching from the bench, it was another Nigerian-Irish striker Michael Obafemi who scored to turned the game on its head with last-minute equalizer.


Obafemi tapped home from Wardprowse’s corner from close range to canceled out United’s one-goal advantage and denied them a place in the top four for the first time this season.


United thought they had the points wrapped up after Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford scored in quick successions to rendered  Stuart Armstrong’s opening goal for Southampton useless.


Despite the remaining 5th on the log, United are unbeaten in their past 18 games in all competitions (W13 D5), last having a longer run between April and November 2010 (29 games).
