Ighalo expects difficult game versus Chelsea

London - Watford’s next English Premier League fixture will be against a struggling Chelsea in Stamford Bridge, and red-hot striker Odion Ighalo is expecting a tough game.
On December 26, interim manager Guus Hiddink will be giving instructions from the sideline for the first time since Jose Mourinho was sacked, and Ighalo is well aware just how tough that clash could be as the Blues look to impress under the new coach.
“It’s going to be a massive game but we are going go out as we always do and push teams, give our best,” he said on Teamtalk.
“It’s going to be difficult because those players will want to play for the new manager, prove their position.
“But in football it is not going to be easy for them and it is not going to be easy for us, so we are going to have to go there and give it everything.”
Watford placed on the 7th spot on the table, will look to go past a wounded Chelsea, who are occupying the 15th position, a terrible place for a defending champion.
