Ighalo scores twice as Watford beats West Ham 2-0

LONDON (AP) Odion Ighalo scored twice to guide Watford to a 2-0 victory against West Ham on Saturday in the Premier League at Vicarage Road.

Watford and Ighalo’s first goal came on 39 minutes, when the Nigeria striker converted Nathan Ake’s cross after he tackled Andy Carroll, who was trying to play the ball out of defense for West Ham.

Ighalo’s second came from the edge of the penalty area in the second half, slotting in after a neat exchange between Ikechi Anya and Troy Deeney.

West Ham defender James Collins was shown a straight red card six minutes from full time for a foul on Ighalo.
