“The first goal was down to all round team performance right from the first minute.

“The coach (Quique Sanchez Flores) told us before the game that we had to go out there and play without fear.

“He said Liverpool would be the ones to fear us as we were coming into the game on the back of three straight wins. It motivated us and we are very happy that we won the game.

“It was a good thing that I scored but it was really all about the team’s performance from start to finish,” the Edo State-born striker told SkySports.

The former Lyn Oslo of Norway player, also paid compliments to the Hornets captain, Troy Deeney who he was instrumental in his first goal against the Reds last Sunday.

“When Troy got the ball (for the first goal), I ran behind the defence because I knew he was going to pass the ball to me.

“He saw my run and played the ball to me. It’s not really something we work on in training but we just have a great connection.

“We are happy and we want to continue playing like that,” said Ighalo, who is three goals behind Leicester Jamie City’s Vardy who is leading the hot shot race with 15 goals.
