Ighalo continues his impressive form for United as he has continued to score in all matches he started for the club.

The 30-year-old was left unmarked in six yards away from goal as he flicked the ball past Tim Crul in goal.

And just before kick-off of the game, DJ Cuppy had dared the Nigerian to score promising that she will officially become a Manchester United fan.

“As a Nigerian I think it’s only right that if Odion Ighalo scores a goal today… I will officially join Manchester United as a fan,” she wrote.

However, Norwich delayed the party for the Red Devils as Todd Cantwell grabbed an equalizer in a spectacular fashion in the 75th minute to make it 1-1.

The Canaries suffered a big blow late on when Timm Klose was shown straight red following a foul Odion Ighalo and the hosts were reduced to ten men.

It was 1-1 at full-time and the game extended into extra-time. Tim Krul put up a breathtaking performance denying United on several occasions, but Harry Maguire fired home a late winner for the Red Devils as Manchester United cruise to the semi-final of the FA Cup. It ended: Norwich 1-2 Manchester United.

Recall that DJ Cuppy in a recent tweet on her page appeared to have thrown an indirect shade at Arsenal following the announcement of a contract extension for some players.

Cuppy’s shade also looked like it was directed at defender, David Luiz, whose contract was recently extended for another one year by the football club.
