“He’s done his [training programme] and it was always going to be a case of him having to integrate into the group anyway after having been out in China. He needs to get used to the players and the team and up to speed as quick as he can.”
The Norwegian harked back to his own club debut, against Blackburn Rovers in 1996, when he came on as a substitute and scored.
“I didn’t have to have a training session to come on and do something.

Ighalo’s fellow new signing Bruno Fernandes is in line to make his first United appearance away from home.
