Ighalo scores against Mikel’s Chelsea

26 December 2015, 23:10Israel Ojoko

London - Odion Ighalo scored against a John Obi Mikel inspired Chelsea in an English Premier League tie that ended in a 2-2 draw on Boxing Day.

Ighalo scored Watford’s second goal in the 57th minute to put his side ahead after the first half had ended 1-1.

That was his 13th goal of the current EPL season, and the 26-year old is now the first ever Watford player to score in five consecutive games since the creation of the Premier League in 1992.

Diego Costa broke the deadlock in the 32nd minute to put Chelsea ahead but Troy Deeney equalized for Watford ten minutes later as the game went into break.

Mikel was introduced in the 46th minute, replacing Cesc Fabregas.

Costa scored his second on the night in the 65th minute after Ighalo had put Watford ahead eight minutes earlier.

Eden Hazard was felled inside the danger area for a penalty kick. Oscar walked up to it, but shot wide over the bar with ten minutes left to play.

Mikel, who has been inspiring since coming in, had a chance in added time, but his shot was only close.
