The Highest goal scorer at the 2019 AFCON tournament, OdionIghalo of Nigeria Monday night scared the Chelsea Football Club of London named THE BLUES as the team slumped 0-2 in their third defeat to Manchester United in a football season.
Chelsea had goalkeeper, Willy Caballero to thank for throwing his leg as a last effort to deflect a goal bound shot of Ighalo in less than a minute of play as a substitute.
Ighalo who missed the training tour of Manchester United had always dreamed of playing for ManU since childhood days even when he was playing for Watford another English club but his introduction at the dying moments of the game with Chelsea under two goals pressure made them double up their defense.
Chelsea under Frank Lampard was battling to forge into the top four team comprising Liverpool; Manchester City and Leicester but their loss will keep them more on their toes. Lampard blamed the VAR that rejected their two goals for their loss.
Chelsea lost in the opening match of the 2019/2020 league season match 0-4 to ManU at Old Trafford, lost 1-2 at Stamford Bridge in the Carabao cup and now two scintillating goals has established the superiority of the ravaging RED Devils, Manchester United.
