Weeks after netting a brace against Liverpool to become Watford’s highest goal scorer ever in English Premier League, Nigeria and Watford forward Odion Ighalo became the first Watford player ever to score in six straight top-flight games when he scored in team’s 1-2 defeat to Totteham Hotspur in the last game of the first half of the season.
The 26-year-old scored 14 times in 19 premier league appearances creating two assists, no record of penalty kicks in his goals.
Ighalo joined Watford on a season-long loan deal from Udinese, on 29 July 2014 and was later signed on a permanent move in October 2014 after putting up an impressive display during his loan spell.
Three months after making his switch permanent to Watford, he scored four second half goals and was voted Man of the match in a 7–2 home routing of Blackpool, who led 0–2 at half time; he took his league tally to 14 on 10 February 2015 to help his team promote to the EPL and he has become a force to reckon with in the Epl scoring week in week out.
Ighalo scored in his Premier League debut on 8 August 2015 coming in as a substitute to replace José Manuel Jurado 16 minutes from time and putting the visitors ahead 2–1 in an eventual 2–2 draw away against Everton for the season opener.He netted twice in a 3–0 home win over Liverpool and against Chelsea on boxing day scored his thirteenth goal of the season, becoming the Hornets highest goal scorer in the competition after just 18 matches.
The Nigeria forward scored 30 league goals in 2015, more than any other player in England’s top four leagues and according to SQUAWKA comparison matrix Ighalo has a better shot accuracy ahead of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and C. Ronaldo
