Ighalo Helps Manchester United Earn A Draw Against Spurs

Nigeria international, Odion Ighalo, helped his Manchester United side earn a draw against Spurs in their first Premier League match after the league was suspended to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Manchester United were trailing by a lone goal scored when United keeper David de Gea failed to stop Steven Bergwijn’s powerful 27th-minute drive.

De Gea made a measure of amends with a superb save from Son Heung-min shortly after his error, while Hugo Lloris made a magnificent flying save from Anthony Martial as United chased an equaliser.

The visitors were still trailing when Anthony Martial was substituted for Ighalo in the 78th minute and only three minutes later, Eric Dier clumsily brought down Paul Pogba in the Spurs penalty area to concede a penalty.

Bruno Fernandes converted the spot-kick nine minutes from time to leave United in fifth place, four points ahead of Spurs.
