Manchester United appear promising in the FA Cup race, displaying a great form plus high conviction to seize the silverware no matter what.

With an overwhelming 3-0 scoreline, the Mancunians got the better of Derby County in the 5th round fixture, a game in which even Luke Shaw’s name appeared on the score sheet.

The Premier League side also did well defensively speaking, grabbing another clean sheet doing no harm last night as well to their new trend of not conceding any goals.

Viewing a key aspect of the match, Odion Ighalo was the player who managed to stretch the lead for his side, scoring two goals in respective halves of the fixture.

Owing to the striker’s sensational performance, Ole Gunnar Solskjær praised the star by titling him as ‘different’.

After joining United on loan from Shanghai Shenhua this winter, the Nigerian showcased a rather quick adaptation, scoring three goals for his side since his arrival.

Accordingly, the manager is contented with his performance which was highlighted after the final whistle in their latest FA Cup fixture as he spoke about the 30-year-old.

“When you get strikers in you want them to be happy and confident,” he told BT Sport.

“He has come in here and of course we still have a few injuries and it is great for us to have Odion to call upon.

“He is a different striker for us and scores some good goals, there is not many who could dig that one out for his first. We have a team of good players.”
