Emmanuel Dennis’ goal and assists helps Watford run riot on Everton
Watford got a win against Everton at the Goodison Park for the first time ever in a fascinating style with thanks to the heroics of Super Eagles forward, Emmanuel Dennis who scored a beauty and made up for other two.
The Hornets hammered Everton 2-5 at home on Saturday as new manager, Claudio Ranieri got his first win since he landed at the Vicarage Road earlier this month.
Emmanuel Dennis notched his third Premier League goal in nine outings for Watford in the seven goal thriller after coming on in the sixty-fourth minute.
The 23-year old waited till the last ten minutes to unleash the dragon in him when he assisted Josh King’s second of the nailbiting encounter. A quick counter-attack saw Dennis find Joshua King in acres of space who netted his second of the game to put Watford 3-2.
Six minutes later, Dennis once again found King who turned inside the box before firing past Jordan Pickford for his hat-trick, making it 4-2 in favor of the visitors.
The former FC Koln and Club Brugge striker then rounded off the score in the 91st minute after finding some space before firing low into the net.
Another Super Eagles in action on the afternoon were William Troost-Ekong and Alex Iwobi for Watford and Everton respectively.
Troost-Ekong played the entirety of the tie while Iwobi was brought on for The Toffees in the 77th minute.
