His impressive hold play against Chelsea is highlighted before his goal against Club Brugge in a Europa League game.

He is shown next playing against Derby in an FA Cup game where he grabbed a brace.

His impressive cameo in the Manchester derby win over Manchester City is also seen in the video. It was his hold up play that also caught the eyes in that game.

The video ends with his fine goal against LASK. Ighalo controlled the ball with both his feet before smashing into the top corner with his left foot.

Apart from his weekly wage, Ighalo is earning some huge bonuses with his fine performances for Manchester United.
