Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo says Arsenal’s defender, Laurent Koscielny remains one of the toughest opponents he has confronted in the Barclay’s Premier League this season.

Ighalo, who has scored 14 goals for Watford in his first season to become Nigeria’s highest goal scorer in England, couldn’t find the back of the net as the Gunners won 3 – 0 at Vicarage Road thanks to Koscielny’s solid form.

He disclosed that Arsenal’s Koscielny is one of his toughest defenders in the Premier League.

“I think I’ve faced a lot of tough defenders this season. But I would say that against Arsenal Koscielny didn’t give me enough space to do what I want to do and that game was really difficult.”
