Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo rediscovered his goal scoring form as he netted in Watford’s 2-1 win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in Sunday’s FA Cup fourth round.

Ighalo’s goal came in the 50th with a splendid finish to keep the home fans silent.

A subsequent goal by Adlène Guedioura from the edge of the area gave Watford a 2-0 lead against Arsenal in the quarter-final and eventually dented the Gunners chances of defending their FA Cup title.

Meanwhile, a late minute strike from Mesut Özil was not enough to send the game to a replay.

The Gunners will shift attention to Wednesday’s Champions League second leg round of 16 clash against Barcelona at Camp Nou.
