Odion Ighalo obviously missing as Man United vs Chelsea ended in a barren draw.

Former Nigeria international Odion Ighalo was not included in the matchday squad as Manchester United settled for a barren draw against Chelsea in their Premier League clash at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Ighalo since moving to United is yet to score a goal in the Premier League and hopes that he could do so in a big game were dashed as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not include him in the matchday squad, and instead opted for his new acquisition, Edison Cavani.

Saturday’s game between the two heavyweights was low on incidents or moments of quality.

What could best be described as the finest opportunity of the game fell to Marcus Rashford but the United striker could not beat goalkeeper Edouard Mendy when put through one-on-one during the first half.

The Blues definitely felt they should have had a penalty when Harry Maguire manhandled Cesar Azpilicueta on a corner but neither referee Martin Atkinson nor the VAR check was in their favor.

Despite the stalemate, Lampard will be pleased to have at least kept a clean sheet at Old Trafford given Chelsea’s long-established defensive issues.

As for Solskjaer, the inconsistences that has characterised their season remains worrying even as they struggled to break down a half-organised defense.

It is unfortunate that after the highs of the victory in Paris in the midweek Champions League tie, United are setting for themselves a detestable record of failing to win a Premier League match at Old Trafford that United after five consecutive games.
