London - Watford striker Odion Ighalo has regretted their failure to secure all three points as they drew 2-2 at Stamford Bridge against champions, Chelsea on Boxing Day.

“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 was quoted on the club’s website.
Despite feeling they should have won the game, however, the 26-year old admitted it was a difficult game and is happy with the point they got.
“It was a difficult game but I am happy we got a point out of here because coming to Stamford Bridge and taking a point is very good," said Ighalo.
“The team really worked hard from the start to the finish and there's a lot of confidence building in the team, so we want to keep going.
“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.”For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
