Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo has credited Watford’s victory over Norwich City on Saturday to teamwork and meticulous preparations during training.
The Nigerian international was instrumental as Watford defeated fellow Premier League new-boys Norwich City 2-0, winning the penalty for Troy Deeney’s opener before doubling Watford’s lead in stoppage time.
Ighalo continued his impressive form for the Hornets’ when he notched his ninth goal of the season, and the on-fire striker felt the victory was as a result of a expertly executed their game-plan.
“The teamwork has been great, you see the way we have been pushing ourselves and the team really worked hard from the first minute until the last minute today.
“We can’t single out any player today because from Heurelho to the top everybody really worked hard and we deserved the three points.
“The key today was that we pressed them high and we didn’t allow them to play, so they played long balls and that’s what we were waiting for.
“When we got the ball we tried to play and counter them, so the game-plan really worked and we played really good today.
“I think today was one of our best games, after the West Ham game, so we want to keep pushing and see how far we are going to go at the end of the season.” Ighalo told the Hornets PlayerHD.
In Deeney and Ighalo, the Hornets boss Quique Flores has statistically the most creative pairing in the league. Both are incredibly hard working, and interchange where they play in attack. The duo have now combined to create 24 goal-scoring chances for each other in the Premier League this campaign – more than any other pair.
