Watford of England striker, Odion Jude Ighalo has come out with a down-to-earth confession that Arsenal stopper, Laurent Koscielny is the toughest defender he has faced in the English Premier League.
Ighalo is on a roller-coaster ride in his debut season in England’s top-flight but, despite his massive haul of 14 goals so far, he admits players like Koscielny always do their best to prevent goals against their teams.

When asked to nominate the toughest defender he has faced this season, the former Prime FC of Osogbo, Julius Berger of Lagos, Lyn Oslo of Norway, Udinese of Italy and Granada of Spain hitman said Koscielny impressed him most.
“I think I have faced a lot of difficult defenders this season. But I would say against Arsenal, Koscielny did not give me enough space to do what I wanted and this match was really difficult.
“Koscielny is the best defender I’ve faced this season,” said Ighalo, who hit 20 goals in the English Championship during his first season with Watford, helping The Hornets regain promotion back to the EPL.
