Emmanuel Dennis becomes the 8th Super Eagles star to score 10 or more Premier League goals in a season

Emmanuel Dennis scored Watford’s only goal in their 2-1 home defeat to Brentford in a Premier League game at the Vicarage Road Stadium on Saturday.

In form, Brentford drew the first blood through a strike from Christian Noergaard in the first half but Emmanuel Dennis pulled back for Watford in the second half.

The Nigerian striker ended his 7-game goalless run with his 55th-minute strike to draw Watford level against visiting Brentford.

He became just the 8th Super Eagles player to score 10 or more Premier League goals in a single season.
