Mikel and Troost-Ekong shine as Sarr fires Watford past Stoke City

The Nigerian stars featured for their respective clubs while the Senegal winger scored to inspire the Hornets to victory

John Obi Mikel and William Troost-Ekong were on parade while Ismaila Sarr found the back of the net as Watford secured a 2-1 victory over Stoke City in Friday’s Championship game.

Former Nigeria international Mikel was afforded his 18th league start of the campaign and gave a good account of himself but could not help Michael O’Neill’s men to avoid defeat.

His compatriot Troost-Ekong starred for the Hornets in his 15th league appearance this season and helped his side secure their 13th win of the season with Senegal international Sarr scoring a crucial goal in the encounter.
