Watford will survive if Deeney and I stay fit, says Ighalo


Odion-IghaloNigeria international Odion Ighalo has said he believes if he and strike partner Troy Deeney stayed fit, Watford will stay up in the English Premier League this season.

The former Udinese striker reckoned his blossoming partnership with the team captain is one of the reasons for the club’s performance.

The two strikers have 14 goals between them this season, Ighalo with nine goals and Deeney with five goals as both scored 41 goals last season to take the team up to EPL.

“We played with each other in the Championship last season and we were great. I scored 20 and he scored 21. We’ve been working hard every day and I know we’ve been causing defenders serious problems. We know if we keep fit and doing this we’ll stay up,” he told London Evening Express.

“The coach is giving me belief and he is happy with the work-rate I am putting into the game.

“I’ve scored nine now but I don’t want to stop there. I want to keep on working hard and scoring goals.”
