Ighalo Misses Open Net; Success Stars As Man Utd Are Stung By The HornetsTwo Nigerian stars, Odion Ighalo and Isaac Success, were on parade at Vicarage Road as Watford beat Manchester United 3-1 in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, their first victory over the Red Devils since September 16, 1986.

The Hornets opened scoring in the 34th minute through Capoue but ought to have taken the lead earlier, with Ighalo missing an open net on 13 minutes after a mistake by De Gea, before heading over the bar from a Cathcart cross.

Rashford restored parity for the visitors just after the hour mark, only for substitute Zúñiga to restore Watford’s one goal lead with his second touch of the ball, with six minutes remaining.

Into the 90th minute, Isaac Success made his third consecutive appearance as a substitute, replacing Ighalo, and his mazy run in injury time earned Watford a penalty converted by Deeney.

Watford, who occupy the eighth position in the English top-flight, travel to Burnley in their next fixture.
