Odion Ighalo poor goal return of just two in his last thirteen game has has become an object of disagreement between followers of English Premiership side Watford Fc.

Rene Gilmartin in his post match analysis said, it appears the Nigerian is too keen on playing with strike partner Troy Deeney which has affected his composure in front of goal.

Former Watford midfielder Derek Payne on his part feels Ighalo is suffering a confidence crisis.

“It wasn’t a great header” He said while referring to Ighalo’s late chance at the death against Leicester City which they lost 0-1.

“His confidence has taken a knock, but it isn’t through a lack of work rate, or that he’s not trying, or because he’s being selfish that things aren’t going for him”

However they both agreed that the 26 year old Nigerian who has 14 goals this season appears to have put himself under immense pressure to defend and attack as well.
