Dennis Makes Premier League History

…becomes sixth player with 10 goals involvement in 12 games

Nigeria international Emmanuel Dennis on Saturday makes history by becoming the first Watford player to net five goals and provided another five assists in 12 matches or fewer games.

His goal against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium also means that he is only the sixth player in the competition history after Eric Cantona (11), Jurgen Klinsmann (12), Arjen Robben (11), Andrey Arshavin (10) and Bruno Fernandes (9) to have achieved that feat.

The Super Eagles striker joined the Watford from Club Brugge in the last transfer window and has become an instant hit for the Premier League side.

The 24-year-old scored Watford first goal since their return to the top-flight league in their 3-2 win against Aston Villa in August.

He also got the Hornets their first away goal of the 2021/22 season in their 3-1 over Norwich City. His other victims in the Premier League includes Everton and Manchester United.

Only Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah outshines Dennis, a situation that was probably not imagined in August.

Meanwhile, the prolific striker picked up an injury in their 4-2 loss to The Foxes and was replaced by Ashley Fletcher in the 71minutes.

“With Dennis and Masina, I’m not sure at the moment. Tomorrow we’ll check everybody because Dennis came out and Masina didn’t finish well,” Claudio Ranieri was quoted as saying on the club’s website.

Before his injury, Dennis turned fellow countryman Wilfred Ndidi in the box, inviting the Leicester City midfielder to stick out a careless leg, which forced referee Andrew Madley to point to the spot.

Catching Foxes defender Timothy Castagne unaware, Dennis also burst past Belgian Timothy Castagne, winning the ball in the process and setting up a one on one with Kasper Schmeichel. With composure and expertise, Dennis fooled the Leicester captain, dinking the ball into the net to bring the score to 3-2.
