Ighalo is the first Watford player to score two braces in the Premier League.
After James Collins’ red card, West Ham have received the most red cards in the Premier League this season (4).
Ighalo has now been involved in each of Watford’s last nine Premier League goals (seven goals, two assists).

The Hammers lost their first away game since the last day of last season (2-0 vs Newcastle).
