Nigerian Odion Ighalo and Mikel Obi were both in full-time action for their respective teams Watford and Chelsea who played out a goalless draw at Vicarage Road on Wednesday.
The duo showed intent and passion all through the encounter with Mikel shackling his compatriot Ighalo, who has 15 Premier League goals this season, in the fifth minute.
Ighalo had a chance to put Watford a goal up in the 25th minute but his header could not contact well with Jose Holebas cross.
He later forced a save from Thibaut Courtois from a long range just after Etienne Capoue’s strike from a tight angle kept the momentum going for the Hornets.
Mikel who is yet to lose a game under Guus Hiddink also saw his 35m yard deflect off Cathcart and loops up in the air before Gomes, back-pedalling, tipped it over the bar.
