Odion Ighalo is unperturbed by the arrival of Edison Cavani at Manchester United as he looks forward to continue to fight for opportunities at Old Trafford dwellers.
Ighalo started his Manchester United career brightly after scoring five goals in four starts for the club last season, helping the Red Devils qualify for the champions league, reached FA Cup, and Europa League semi-final.

The former Watford man witnessed a dip in form after failing to impress so far this season and has not started a Premier League game this term.
Cavani’s arrival will increase the competition for places in attack but Ighalo believes the former Paris Saint-Germain striker, will improve everybody’s output and increase competition for places in the attack.
“It’s good for the team, for everybody to be on their toes to work hard,” noted Ighalo.
“For a big team, like Manchester United, you have to have competition for players to do well and I welcome the new guys coming in. They will bring more challenges to everyone in the team, to work hard for their positions to play in the team,” he told Manchester United official website.
Interestingly, Ighalo could get his first Premier League to start for Man United as the pair of Anthony Martial and Edison Cavani are out Red Devils trip to Newcastle United tonight.
