Ighalo Comes In To Replace United’s Hat-Trick Hero, Martial

Nigeria international and Manchester United forward, Odion Ighalo, was on duty again on Wednesday night for Manchester United as he was brought in to replace Anthony Martial who scored Manchester United’s first hat-trick in seven years.

Martial’s three goals were all that was needed for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men to ease past Sheffield United at Old Trafford.

Robin van Persie was the last United player to score a treble in the league.

The result moves United to within two points of fourth-placed Chelsea, who entertain Manchester City on Thursday.
