Mazzarri has however, backed Ighalo to find his form soon.

He still has confidence because we as a team have confidence in him,” Mazzarri told Daily Star.

They are periods where players are more in form than others. But we believe in him and it is just a matter of him scoring.

Mainly what I ask from my forwards is not to score but to play well. Of course he came back from Nigeria two days ago so it is very difficult to prepare.

I have four forwards and various options and will make a decision later.”

Watford travel to Wales where they will face Swansea in the next Premier League matchday.
