Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Odion Ighalo will be part of the squad that will face Watford in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Ighalo, who is a former Watford striker has been struggling for playing time since the arrival of Edinson Cavani last summer. The former Nigeria international has only featured once for United in Premier League this season.

He also featured once in United’s UEFA Champions League 3-1 home defeat to Paris Saint-Germain on December 2.

“Odion, it’s special for him against Watford, he will be involved, he’s in the squad, he’s been training really well, he was the top scorer in round robin we just finished,” Solskjaer told a press conference on Friday.

“He’s not lost any of his quality, it’s been difficult for him to be out of the squad as many times because he did really well up until the summer.

“This season he’s not had as many opportunities and not let himself down as a professional and a human being. He’s always a positive influence in the dressing room. Hopefully I don’t need to put him on that we need goals, but hopefully he can join in.”
