Deeney and Ighalo have scored 12 of Watford’s 15 Premier League goals this season and Flores calls the strikers’ partnership an “amazing connection”.

The Nigerian international netted the opener of the Hornets’ 3-2 victory over Aston Villa which was his eighth of the season while Deeney headed home the visitors’ decisive third.

Defences have struggled to contain the duo all season and after Saturday’s victory a pleased Flores was full of praise for pair.

“It is an amazing connection they have,” the Spaniard said. “We have the possibility of playing different styles with Deeney and Ighalo. We can play long ball or we can play with the ball on the floor.

“They are not strikers who only play well if they score. It is amazing what they do in defence. They put in so much effort to reduce space and that is why we always defend with 11 players.”
