The Nigerian striker has doubled Manchester United’s lead before half-time in the FA Cup fifth round fixture away to Derby County at Pride Park.
United have established their dominance in the tie after an edgy opening, and are now surely heading into the quarter-finals.
Luke Shaw gave United the lead with his second ever goal in professional football, and played his part as Ighalo cemented United’a authority.
The left-back has been in fine form in recent weeks and drilled in a pin point pass into Ighalo.
The forward showed great strength and determination, before poking into the bottom corner with his left foot.
Despite the uproar over his deadline day signing, Ighalo is proving himself a useful striker option for Solskjaer with his second goal in a week.
