VIDEO: Dennis scores 8th league goal in Watford’s 4-1 loss to West Ham

Dennis Emmanuel has scored his 8th league goal of the season with a beautiful goal in Watford’s 4-1 home loss to West Ham in a Premier League game on Tuesday.

The Nigerian forward opened the scoring inside five minutes to continue his hot streak as he fired superbly into the top corner.

Watford then scored twice inside two minutes just before the half-hour mark to turn the game on its head.

First, Tomas Soucek drew the scores level with a first-time finish before Said Benrahma gave the Hammers the lead after his effort was deflected past Daniel Bachmann.

The visitors extended their lead in the second half as Mark Noble converted from the penalty spot after Bachmann made a clumsy challenge on Jarrod Bowen inside the area.
