Odion Ighalo is set to be handed his second start for Manchester United in tonight’s FA Cup clash against Derby County. The Red Devils will come up against club legend Wayne Rooney, who joined the Rams from DC United in January.
Odion Ighalo, who scored on his full debut in last week’s last week Europa League win, is likely to lead the line amid Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s lack of attacking options.
Daniel James remains sidelined after picking up a knock in the 5-0 romp against Club Brugge while Marcus Rashford is still out.
Paul Pogba is also a long-term absentee while Aaron Wan-Bissaka picked up a back problem in Sunday’s draw at Everton so could miss out.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Solskjaer said: “Yeah [James will] probably miss out on this one as well and Marcus and Paul are still out and I think Aaron might be struggling,” Ole told reporters at his pre-match press conference.
“He’s got a test today, but he struggled in our last game against Everton with his back, so he might be out.
