Super Eagles Striker Scores Second Premier League Goal

Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Dennis has continued his fine run with Watford in the English Premier League as he got the opening goal against Norwich City on Saturday.

The goal by the former Club Brugge forward is his second in the EPL having also scored in his debut for the Hornets.

However, Teemu Pukki cancelled out the Nigerian striker’s opener in the first half, but Ismaila Sarr sealed Watford’s second Premier League win of the season with a close-range finish shortly after the hour mark and another in the 82nd minute.

The result means Watford who also have the Nigerian duo William Troost-Ekong and Oghenekaro Etebo in their squad move up into 10th on six points. 

For Norwich, they remain in 20th without a point.

In the other Saturday games already decided, Arsenal were able to beat Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor but Manchester City were held to a surprising barren draw at the Etihad by Southampton.

At Anfield, the Reds had a ruthless performance; trouncing Crystal Palace 3-0.

The usual suspects Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah were both on target before Naby Keita capped the victory with a well-taken goal in the second half.

The latest victory puts Liverpool at the top of the log with 13 points from five league games.

In the day’s early kickoff at Molineux, Frank Onyeka came on as a second-half substitute as Brentford stunned Wolverhampton 2-0 to record their first-ever away win in the Premier League.

With Saturday’s result, Onyeka and his Brentford teammates moved up to ninth in the standings while Wolves, still seeking their first home win under Bruno Lage, slipped to 14th.
