Odion Ighalo has ended the year as the highest goalscorer in England.

On Monday, the Super Eagles striker scored his 14th goal in the English Premier League in a game Watford lost 2-1 to Tottenham Spur but the goal confirmed the Nigerian as the most prolific scorer in England with a total of 30 goals. His leadership position covers the top four divisions in England.

In the first half, Spurs set up to counter attack and it paid off in the 17th minute as Erik Lamela side-footed past Heurelho Gomes in goal for Watford. And 24 minutes later, Ighalo showed strength and speed to level in the 41st minute but substitute Heung-Min Son struck a dramatic late winner to give Tottenham a 2-1 victory over 10-man Watford at Vicarage Road.
