Ighalo gave a good account of himself in the tournament, scoring three goals in three matches.

The striker netted a brace against Derby County and found the back of the net in their victory over Norwich City at Carrow Road.

His eye-catching performances in front of the goal have seen him nominated for the best striker role in the competition.

Arsenal won the 2019/2020 edition of the tournament, defeating London rivals, Chelsea by 2-1 in the final at Wembley earlier this month.

The 31-year-old has since found the back of the net five times and provided one assist in 18 appearances across all competitions.

The forward recently earned a loan contract extension until January 2021 with the Old Trafford outfit following his form for the side so far.
