Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo, on Monday night, made history following his side’s 2-0 win over Chelsea in the Premier League.

Man United defeated Chelsea at Stamford Bridge after two goals from Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire.

Ighalo’s participation for the Red Devils against Frank Lampard’s men means the 30-year-old is now the 200th player to make an appearance for Man United in the Premier League and also the first Nigerian to do so, according to Opta Joe.

The former Watford star replaced Anthony Martial at stoppage time during the encounter against the Blues.

He joined Man United on a six-month deal from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua last month.

His move to Old Trafford came to reality following striker Marcus Rashford’s back injury, which will rule the England international out for three months.

Ighalo will now hope to lead Man United to victory when they take on Club Brugge in an away Europa League round of 32 fixture.

Kevin De Bruyne says Manchester City want to reassert their superiority by winning all four major trophies this season.

City finished last season with a whimper as they ended 18 points behind Premier League champions Liverpool and suffered a shock Champions League quarter-final defeat against Lyon.

They were also beaten in the FA Cup semi-finals by Arsenal with the League Cup final win against Aston Villa a rare highlight for Pep Guardiola’s side.

But City are determined to make amends this term and Belgian midfielder De Bruyne insists fresh goals have been set, including a clean sweep of the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup.

“I think the motivation doesn’t change if you win or you lose,” De Bruyne said after impressing in City’s 3-1 win at Wolves on Monday.

“When you start a new season there are new aspirations, you want to win the most as possible and we want to win everything.

“For us, all four (trophies) is in the mind, that’s the mentality. It is obviously very hard but we went into Monday knowing that it was going to be a very hard game.

“We didn’t train a lot but I think the performance was really good and that’s good for us.”
