Nigeria international Odion Ighalo has insisted there was nothing special about his brace for Watford against Liverpool at the weekend.
Ighalo has now fired 12 goals in the English Premier League (EPL), but he maintained there was nothing special about the goals against Liverpool.
“I thank God for giving me the grace to score two goals against Liverpool. I give him the glory. I see nothing special about scoring against Liverpool, it’s the same feeling for scoring goal and it doesn’t matter against which team,” Ighalo said.
The forward’s double against Liverpool left him just three goals behind leader Jamie Vardy in the division’s scoring charts.
It remains to be seen just how many goals he can finish his maiden Premier League campaign with, but the former Granada and Udinese ace is refusing to set himself any targets.
“I give God all the glory for my goals and the victory,” he said.
“Last season I never set a target and this season I haven’t either.
“I will never set myself a target as then I put pressure on myself. I want to keep going game by game.
“When the team wins a game that is the most important.
In the meantime, Ighalo has credited manager Quique Flores for Watford’s run in the EPL.
“He is one of the best coaches I’ve worked with in terms of game plans and encouraging his players. He is a very intelligent guy and deserves big credit for everything we are going through now,” Ighalo remarked.
