Deeney Thrilled As Ighalo Ends Goal Drought Against Arsenal

By James Agberebi:

Watford skipper, Troy Deeney, has hailed Odion Ighalo for ending his goal drought in the Hornet's 2-1 win against Arsenal in the quarter-final of the FA Cup at the Emirates on Sunday.

After going seven games without a goal, Ighalo finally got his name amongst the goals, scoring Watford's opener after Deeney provided the assist.

Deeney, also praised Algeria's Adlene Guedioura, whose thunderous strike, gave Watford a 2-0 lead. 

He went on to thank their travelling fans for their massive support during the game.

Deeney wrote on his Twitter handle: "Massive, well done to Ighalo, back amongst the goals. And Adlene Guedioura, what a strike lad. Thanks for the support, was top class."

Watford now join Everton and Crystal in the semi-finals of the FA Cup which will be played at Wembley Stadium.

Meanwhile, there will be a replay in the other semi-final between Manchester United and West Ham.

In Sunday's clash between both teams, West Ham held Manchester United to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
