EPL: Super Eagles duo start on losing note with new manager

The Super Eagles duo of Emmanuel Dennis and William Troost-Ekong started on a losing note under new Watford manager Claudio Ranieri on Saturday in the Premier League.

The two Nigerian players were given starting roles by Ranieri but they were unable to stop the Reds who romped to a ruthless 5-0 win at the Vicarage Road in the day’s early kickoff in the EPL.

Sadio Mane set the tone for what turned to be a huge win for  Liverpool; scoring just nine minutes into the game.

The goal by the Senegalese saw him hit the 100-goal mark in the Premier League, and in the meantime become only the third player to reach 100+ Premier League goals without any of them being penalties.

Liverpool double their lead in the 37th minute through Roberto Firmino who went on to score a hat trick in the entertaining clash.

It took Liverpool just seven minutes into the second half for Firmino to make it 3-0 for Liverpool before Mohamed Salah joined in the goalscoring spree with another sensational goal.

The Egyptian danced past three Watford defenders, left Craig Cathcart on his backside and then curled a wonderful effort into the far corner to make it 4-0 in the second half.

Firmino completed his hat-trick in stoppage time as the win moves Liverpool top of the Premier League, with Chelsea playing Brentford later.

The Hornets are 15th on the log with seven points after eight games
