It’s been a season to remember so far for Watford as they continue to sit in the top half of the Premier League table and now Odion Ighalo and Quique Sanchez Flores have been named as Player and Manager of the Month for December.
The Hornets have performed above all expectations so far and currently lie in tenth but remain just four points outside the top six.
A major reason why they’ve been punching above their weight is the form of striker Ighalo, who netted five goals last month.
The Nigerian has been a revelation so far and netted twice against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool on December 20 to earn the Hornets a stunning 3-0 win.
The 26-year-old bullied Martin Sktrel for the first goal and terrorised the Reds defence alongside his strike partner Troy Deeney.
