Odion Ighalo predicts Premier League glory for Watford

Watford striker Odion Ighalo believes that the Hornets can win the Premier League title at some point in the future.


Watford striker Odion Ighalo has told CNN that he believes that the Hornets can follow the example set by Leicester City and challenge at the top of the Premier League table.

The Hertfordshire outfit currently sit in ninth position in the table, but Ighalo sees Quique Sanchez Flores's team winning silverware in the near future.

The 26-year-old said: "Look at Leicester, they are flying. If I told you on the first day of the League that Leicester would be where they are now, I think you would slap me.

"We can't say now, but I believe one day, we can win the League and why not the Champions League. It's football. It's a game. Anything can happen."

Despite last week's defeat to Arsenal, Leicester continue to lead the way in the top flight, with some bookmakers making the Foxes title favourites before the setback at the Emirates Stadium.


While Leicester have been the surprise package as far as teams are concerned, Ighalo has impressed in his debut campaign in the Premier League, scoring 14 goals in 26 matches.


His form has resulted in reported interest from elsewhere, but the Nigerian international has suggested that he is focused on helping Watford up the standings over the coming years.

Ighalo could feature when Watford host Leeds United in the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday afternoon.
