Newcastle vs Man Utd: Ighalo sends message to Cavani, others

EPL: Ighalo battle-ready for Newcastle United clash

Ighalo ready to grab Man United chance

The former Nigeria global came off the bench in the season opener against Crystal Palace but was not among the substitutes for subsequent top-flight matches against Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur.

It remaina to be seen whether he'll be in the Manchester United starting XI this weekend. "Whenever the gaffer calls me, my idea is just to give my best in training, work hard and wait for my opportunity - to take it". The supporters give me a lot of love, the coach too, and my partners on the pitch.

The Red Devils saw an inconsistent start to the 2020-21 campaign hit a new low when they played host to former boss Jose Mourinho. However, United need another win on the road to offer the ideal response to the defeat to Tottenham last time out. Time to train too, as we didn't have a pre-season, so we needed to take this time we had during the worldwide break and put it to good use - to train, to ideal a few things.

The St James' Park faithful know all about what Saint-Maximin can do with a ball at his feet, and we should all be looking forward to many more years of the 23-year-old's flamboyancy.

Asked about Manchester United's new signings, Ighalo said: "It's good for the team, for everybody to be on their toes to work hard". Those of us who did not go to the global teams have been working seriously hard.

You're without Anthony Martial through suspension and Edinson Cavani is unavailable for Saturday, so what are your thoughts in an attacking sense?"First of all we think about how we can go up there and try to dominate the game, control the game and win the game".

The Red Devils have started the season in awful form and have taken just three points from three games, putting them in 16th place in the Premier League.

"For a big team, like Manchester United, you have to have competition for players to do well and I welcome the new guys coming in". He's a signing in the tradition of what we do here which is to bring young players in and let them grow and develop and become the player they can be.
