After his last weekend exploits for Watford, Nigeria international Odion Ighalo has expressed his pleasure at his goal scoring form.

The striker scored a brace in Watford’s home 2-0 win over West Ham taking his goal total to seven for the newly promoted side.

Ighalo is now Watford's all-time top goalscorer in Barclays Premier League history and the striker says he’s happy to help his team.

“I’m happy about my goals, but I’m most pleased about the team’s performance. We played very well and we deserved the win and the three points,” Ighalo told Hornets PlayerHD.

Watford teammate of the Super Eagles striker  Ben Watson also had praises for him.

“We had created chances (against West Ham United), and if we didn’t score it would have been very disappointing. Maybe that’s been the case at home, as we probably haven’t scored as many goals as we would like. But you can always rely on Ighalo to get you a goal,”  Watson said.
