Arsenal Manager Wenger Wary Of Threat Posed By Odion IghaloArsenal boss Arsene Wenger is wary of the threat posed by Odion Ighalo and his strike partner Troy Deeney ahead of Sunday afternoon’s FA Cup clash between his side and Watford at the Emirates.

The pair have plundered 24 goals between them in all competitions in the ongoing campaign, with the Nigeria international accounting for 15 of those strikes.

“They have two strikers who are very efficient in Ighalo and Deeney and we worked very hard to control the game [last time we played them],” Wenger told arsenal.com.

“They have a very good understanding between their strikers and the quality between our two centre backs will be vital on Sunday.

“Watford have done extremely well. It looks like the Championship teams that come up now deal very well with the Premier League regime.”

Odion Ighalo has failed to find his scoring boots in recent matches, and has played seven games on the trot for the Hornets without finding the net.

His last competitive goal was his match-winner against Nottingham Forest in the fourth round of the FA Cup on January 30 at The City Ground.
