Two goals from Nigerian Striker, Odion Ighalo helped give Watford an impressive 3-nil win over Liverpool at Vicarage Road on Sunday.

A dreadful mistake from Adam Bogdan, who was replacing the injured Simon Mignolet in Liverpool’s goal, allowed Nathan Ake to score a simple opener.

Ighalo, put two past Adam Bogdan in the 15th minute, after Troy Deeney chipped a pass forward and a fit, Ighalo outmuscled Martin Skrtel to send the ball home. While in the 85th minute, Ighalo headed home, substitute Valon Behrami’s cross to seal the game.

The Nigerian Striker now has 12 Premier League goals this season.

The convincing win puts in-form Watford within one point of Tottenham in fourth place, while Liverpool remain ninth and have now won only three of nine league games since Jurgen Klopp took charge after a poor performance.
