The Nigerian striker maintained his brilliant start to life in the English top-flight after he scored yet again in the Hornet’s clash against Thomas Tuchel’s men
Emmanuel Dennis continues to set the Premier League alight after scoring his sixth league goal of the season against Chelsea.
Although it was not enough to prevent Watford from a 2-1 loss at Vicarage Road, Dennis achieved a feat no other player has achieved against Chelsea this season.
The Nigerian striker’s strike is the first goal Tuchel’s men have conceded from open play away from home in the Premier League this season.

Before Dennis’ goal, Chelsea had only conceded one goal on the road, and that was a Mohamed Salah penalty in the 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Anfield.
But the Blues were unable to keep out Dennis, who showed quick thinking by putting the ball through the legs of Antonio Rüdiger, leaving Edouard Mendy with no chance.
The former Cologne striker has had a bright start to life in the Premier League after he signed from Club Brugge in the summer.
Only Liverpool’s Salah has more goals and assists than Dennis in the Premier League this season.
