Solskjaer seeks instant impact

Published by The Nation on Sat, 15 Feb 2020


Our ReporterManchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed new signing Odion Ighalo to make an immediate impact against Chelsea.Ighalo will train with his new teammates for the first time tomorrow after spending two weeks in quarantine, having arrived from China amid the global coronavirus crisis.It means the striker will get just one session to integrate himself before making the trip to face Chelsea on Monday night, but Solskjaer said that should not be a problem.As a striker you get thrown on and it might be hell have to come off the bench and give us a goal, Solskjaer said. Hell be involved with us and travel down with us. Now hes out of that two-week periodjust a precaution we made. Weve kept in touch with him and of course weve done our own programme, hes done his.Hes been working really hard, pinching himself at times at his favourite club at the age of 30, but hes earned that one and hopefully he impresses us.Read Also: Solskjaer: Ighalo desperate to debut for Man UtdWe needed another forward and when we got the chance to get Odion on a loan that was for us a goal scorer.He can help the clubvery professional player, a good lad and will give something to the group.United will move to within three points of Chelsea in the race for the top four if they win at Stamford Bridge.Solskjaer will have a refreshed group after spending a week in Marbella for a warm weather camp, although Scott McTominay, Axel Tuanzebe and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are still unavailable despite returning to training.Paul Pogba is also side-lined while he continues his recovery from ankle surgery.I dont think well get anyone back for the Chelsea game, Solskjaer said. Scotty, Axel and Tim didnt join too much, so not ready to play that game. Paul is not ready, of course.A win gives us three points [gap] and thats what weve got to aim for. We played them twice this season and done well.Chelsea are a good team, theyre at home, but were going try and win the game, give us more belief, more hope that we can kick on.
