Odion Ighalo opened scoring to inspire Watford to their first win of the season as they defeated West Ham 4-2 as injured Alex Iwobi returned to action for Arsenal.

Watford now have four points from as many matches.

Ighalo pulled a goal back for Watford in the 41st minute after hosts West Ham had raced to a 2-0 lead.

He also assisted in Watford fourth goal.

The 27-year-old striker netted 15 goals last season.

On Saturday, he was replaced by compatriot Isaac Success in the 69th minute.

Iwobi was a 75th minute substitute after he recovered a thigh injury from the opening game of the season.

In Turkey, Nigeria-born Kenny Otigba was on target for Kasimpasa as they fell 2-1 at fellow Istanbul side Medipol Basaksehir.

He opened scoring after 33 minutes, but will be booked in the second half.
