In our final outing of the month, in the eerie surroundings of the empty Linzer Stadion, Ighalo then netted his finest goal yet for the Reds.
Receiving a chipped pass from Fernandes on his right foot, the 30-year-old juggled it on to his left, then back to his right before switching feet again to launch a rocket into Alexander Schlager’s top right-hand corner.
That strike set us on the way to a 5-0 win which ensures we have one foot in the Europa League quarter-finals, when they go ahead.
Of course, football is suspended for at least the next few weeks, but with Anthony Martial an injury doubt for at least the postponed visit to Spurs and Marcus Rashford still recovering from a back problem, it looked as if Ighalo had done everything he could in March to establish himself as United’s first-choice forward.
And that, coupled with the fact Fernandes has got enough awards to keep him going for a while, is why he gets my nod for Player of the Month.
