Watford forward Stefano Okaka  has hailed Nigeria international Isaac Success for his distinguished talents and has tipped him to reach the peak if he works hard.

Success who was handed his first start since October at the White Hart Lane on Saturday, played for the entire 90 minutes as Heung-Min Son's brace, Eric Dier and Dele Alli lone strikes condemned the Hornets to a comprehensive 4-0 loss to Tottenham.

Okaka who has scored three times in the league for Walter Mazzarri's men this season, thinks the 21-year-old Nigerian can still reach the high level if he keeps working hard despite his limited playing time for the Vicarage Road outfit.

"Success is a talented player. He's young, and not playing every day - coming into this type of game is not easy," Okaka told Hertfordshire Mercury.

"He needs to work, but he can carry on at this level and can go up to a very high level too."

Watford are 10th on the English Premier League table with 37 points from 31 games, and they host Swansea City in their next outing.
