Odion Ighalo full of praise for Watford coach

02 November 2015, 10:10

London - Odion Ighalo was satisfied with his performance after increasing his goal scoring haul in the Premier League to seven on the back of his brace in Watford's 2 - 0 victory over West Ham on Saturday.

His multiple goals against the Hammers, which came in the 39th and 47th minutes, means the Nigeria international has found the net 27 times since arriving Vicarage Road from Udinese in the summer of 2014.

Ighalo was full of praise for Watford's coach, Quique Sanchez Flores, saying the instructions received from him prior to the game paid off.

''We know they are a very good team but we stuck to our game-plan and what the gaffer told us to do, and it really worked," Odion Ighalo told watfordfc.com.

"He told us to try and keep  Payet as much away from the goal as possible, because if he's very close he's very dangerous, so we were always pushing and letting him come back to get the ball.''

The Watford number 24 added: "I think that really worked, we really pushed ourselves and we took the chances that came, so we are very happy about the game.

"I'm happy about my goals, but I'm most pleased about the team performance. We played very well today and we deserved the win and the three points."

Watford, who tentatively sit in ninth place, are guests to this seasons surprise package Leicester City in their last game before the international break.
