Odion Ighalo will play his last match for United against Watford in the FA Cup.
The Nigerian forward is expected to leave Old Trafford in January when his contract expires.
Earlier last week, Ighalo expressed his desire to play against his old club Watford in the FA Cup.
The 31-year old striker has dropped down the pecking order since the arrival of Edinson Cavani in the summer window.

“It is special for him against Watford, he will be involved, he’s in the squad,” Solskjaer confirmed.
“He has been training really well, I don’t know how many goals he scored today but he was the top scorer, by a mile in the round robin we just finished in training, so he’s not lost any of his sharpness or his quality. It’s been difficult for him to be out of the squad as many times because he did really well up until the summer.
“This season he’s not had as many opportunities but he has never let himself down as a professional and a human being. In training he always works hard, he has been a positive influence in the dressing room. Hopefully I don’t need to put him on when we need goals, but hopefully he can join in.”
