Manchester City prevented Odion Ighalo from scoring in a record seventh straight match when they came from behind to beat Watford 2-1 in Saturday’s late kick-off in the Premier League.
The Nigerian scored in six straight PL matches before Saturday’s clash at Vicarage Road, but it was the visitors who stole the show.
After a goalless first half, Watford shot into the lead after Aleksandar Kolarov deflected a corner kick into his own goal in the 55th minute.
And after being frustrated for most of the second half, City finally found the breakthrough with eight minutes remaining through Yaya Toure.
Two minutes later, Sergio Aguero sealed the win for City after connecting with a header off a Bacary Sagna cross.
City now have 39 points in third position and are just three points off leaders Arsenal.Watch The Premier League Live!! with EXPRESSVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
