One to watch

Our new weekly feature with Football Index, hosted by Emma Jones alongside Sky Sports' Alan McInally.

Each player selected is discussed in-depth with their performance and potential both on and off the pitch debated by Emma and Alan.

There are two ways to 'win' on Football Index:

1) Buy Low, Sell High

2) Daily Payouts

Ones To Watch covers both, whilst also educating on how each element works in specific player-related context.

Odion Ighalo One to Watch this season

Odion Ighalo turned out to be one of the surprise signings of the January transfer window when he joined Manchester United on loan from Shanghai Shenhua.

Marcus Rashford, the club's top scorer this season, will be out for many more weeks, which may allow Ighalo to step into the limelight after he made his debut against Chelsea on Monday night.

Prior to his move to Manchester, the Nigerian had a respectable 40 goals in 100 games for Watford, and this season boasts of 17 goals in 10 Chinese Super League fixtures. And, because of this gargantuan change, his share price has continued to rise on Football Index.

Now, taking into account his goalscoring feats and the injuries at the club, Ighalo is expected to see plenty more minutes up top for United. As a result, Emma and Alan certainly believe the 30-year-old is one to watch this year, with the Sky Sports pundit expecting at least seven goals in the Premier League from the Red Devils' newbie.

Don't be surprised if Ighalo makes a huge difference at United from now until May.

Keep your eye on Jordan Henderson

"He's massively underrated," said Alan.

Jordan Henderson has had a mesmeric rise over the past two years under Jurgen Klopp, and has now undoubtedly established himself as one of the best around.

Indeed, the Englishman's share price has been on the rise for the entire season thus far, with his Football Index graph rocketing over the past few weeks, in particular. This has coincided with Henderson's recent surge to become the favourite to claim the prestigious PFA Player of the Year award for his role as captain in this record-breaking Liverpool side.

Now, at 29, it's clear to see that the Reds' captain is hitting his peak years and is certainly one to keep an eye on, believes Alan. This season, Henderson has missed just one Premier League game and has contributed three goals and five assists so far and always seems to be part of each Liverpool move right now.

The ex-Sunderland man may well claim the PFA award, help Liverpool win their first title in 30 years, and perhaps even push England to claim European glory for the first time ever.

No doubt, Henderson is one to watch for 2020.
