Meanwhile, some of the club's supporters have called on the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to start the former Watford star in tomorrow's encounter.
After joining the Old Trafford outfit in January, the 30-year-old has made just three appearances with no goals to show for it - all of which he started from the bench.
The Norwegian-born tactician might be forced to rest some of his players ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash against Everton as they continue to chase top-four finish.
Ighalo, who won AFCON 2019 top scorer's prize has been presented with some sumptuous chances but his poor finish forced him to miss those opportunities.
He was denied his first for the Red Devils against the Hornets after his chance was cleared from the goal-mouth, and Manchester Evening News reports that fans want the forward to start against Club Brugge.
MEN conducted a poll if the former Super Eagles star should start tomorrow's game, most of the respondents agreed that he should start.
Over 83 percent of the 2,440 voters voted the 30-year-old to be included in the starting XI, while they urge the boss to rest Martial.
The remaining 16.7 percent of voters don't want Ighalo to start, with some believing that the game is too close and important to make too many changes to a winning team.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester United maintained their dominance over Watford following their 3-0 victory at Old Trafford.
A goal each from Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial, and Mason Greenwood saw the Red Devils cruise to the convincing win.
The triumph has however pushed them to fifth position on the log and they will hope they can build on that in their next game.
