Ighalo’s Brace Powers United Past Derby Into FA Cup Quarters.

Odion Ighalo is putting in new records every day of his loan to Manchester United. The Nigeria International ruined Wayne Rooney’s hopes of leading Derby to an FA Cup upset against Manchester United as he scored two goals to give Man U a 3-0 victory.

Ighalo has only been at United for a few weeks after arriving from China, but his second and third goals for the club stole the spotlight from Old Trafford icon Rooney.

Ighalo scored one goal in the first half and another goal in the second half in addition to Luke Shaw’s goa,l to give United a comprehensive 3-0 win over Derby.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were always in control at Pride Park and Luke Shaw opened the scoring before Ighalo took over to dash Rooney’s bid to knock out his former club.

United will travel to Premier League strugglers Norwich in their sixth successive quarter-final appearance in a competition they have won 12 times.
