Watford striker Odion Ighalo says he isn’t under pressure to continue his impressive goal-scoring run when they confront Newcastle United today in the third round of the FA Cup
The 26-year old scored a brace as Watford beat Newcastle United 2-1 in the Premier League last September and as both sides face off today in the FA Cup, he says he is more interested in his team winning rather than chasing personal glory.
“I don’t think I want to be thinking about the goals I will score, I just want to think of the match and us winning,” he says. “The most important thing is always a win for the team and not whether I score or not. I scored against them already in the Premier League.”
The Nigeria international has 14 goals already this term, and will increase that tally should he find the back of the net against the Magpies, and he admits it would be nice to score and his team wins.
“It would be nice to score and we win, because that is what I want and hopefully we will get the win,” he added.
Following his impressive form for the Hornets, he has been linked with a move away from Vicarage Road, with Atletico Madrid, Manchester United and Arsenal all reportedly interested.
