Nigeria international Isaac Success was on top form in his physical battle with three Newcastle United defenders as Watford progresses to the next round of the FA Cup on Saturday, January 26 at St James Park
 
Success put on a great display of football for Watford when he went home on from close range to make it 2-0 at the last minute. 
 
Speaking post-match shortly after the game, Success revealed that the Newcastle United players know that he is a strong player in terms of his physically, so they paid close attention to him.
 
Indeed, the OPTA statistics back up his statement as he was the most fouled player of the 27 players in action, having drawn six fouls from the opponents. 
 
''It is part of the team plan because most times when we are in a tight situation, the team believe I can always keep the ball, so most times the ball gets to me,'' Success said. 
 
''The opponents know that physically I am strong, so they always come on me."

''It was a good fight, I fought for the team, I fought for myself, I fought for us to move into the next round which we did and I am happy about that for getting a goal and working towards the team's plan.''
 
Isaac Success is Watford's top scorer across all Cup competitions in the ongoing 2018/19 season with three goals in four matches in the Carabao and FA Cups and is the first player to score in all three competitions they have featured in.
