Ighalo sure of EPL goals

18 May 2015, 10:11

London - Nigeria international Odion Ighalo is convinced he can replicate his Championship form in the Premier League after helping Watford earn promotion back to the top-flight.

The forward bagged 20 goals and four assists to help the Hornets to a second-place finish in the second tier this term, earning the Hertfordshire outfit a place back in England's elite division.

And, while the step up to the Premier League is a daunting one, the former Udinese striker Ighalo remains confident in his abilities.

"It is very possible for me to score goals in the Premier League," he told sl10. "The truth is I never expected to score 20 goals in the Championship this season but I worked hard and kept pushing myself and the goals started coming.

"I believe I can do the same in the Premier League."

However, when asked what tally he would be aiming for in the top flight in 2015/16, he said: "I don't like putting myself under pressure by setting a target of the number of goals I want to score but I know with God all things are possible.

"I know I can score goals in the Premier League but I won't give any targets because I know the Premier League will be more difficult. So I just have to take the games as they come and train harder and when the chances come I'll put them away."
