Brilliant Ighalo breaks Watford record

The Nigerian eclipsed Troy Deeney’s record to become the first Hornets player to score in five successive English topflight games
Odion Ighalo has set history as the first Watford player to score in five consecutive in the English Premier League.
The Super Eagles forward was on target against Chelsea in Saturday’s English topflight encounter.
Ighalo was not closed down as he dribbled into the box and his left-footed strike deflected off Cahill, wrong-footing Courtois and sneaking inside the near post.
“We fought to the end. We knew we would get something from the game if we kept on like that,” he said after the game.
His brace against Liverpool last week saw him equal Deeney’s record few days after becoming the Hornets’ highest goalscorer ever in the English Premier League.
The 26-year-old now boasts of 13 goals in 18 appearances for his side this season has weighed in with two assists.
The Nigerian has a record of 115.5 minutes per goal in the English top-flight this term.
