Ighalo Targets Goals Against Tottenham


Having scored a goal in Watford’s 2 – 2 draw against Chelsea in Saturday’s Premier League game, Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighala is determined to keep up his free-scoring form as Watford host Tottenham at Vicarage Road, on Monday.

Ighalo became the first Watford player ever to score in five straight top-flight games and was a major factor in the Championship as he netted 20 goals to help Watford gain promotion back to the Premier League.

With the Spurs game around the corner, Ighalo will be aiming at improving on his goal scoring record in a bid to surpass a 20-goal record in the Premiership.

With his latest effort, Ighalo has scored 13 times in 18 premier league appearances, this campaign has helped the Hornets to push for the top-four spot instead of battling against relegation as many had predicted. The Nigerian has a record of 115.5 minutes per goal in the English top-flight this term.

He reckoned that Watford could have won at Chelsea but he was still delighted the team got a point in London.

“We could have gone away with the three points, but sometimes when you make mistakes you have to pay for it. We allowed Diego Costa to run behind the defense and score, but this is football and we want to keep going,” he said.

“The team really worked hard, from Gomes to the midfield and to the top with me and Troy. We really gave our best and we pushed to the last-minute, so it’s a deserved point for us.
