Nigerian striker, Emmanuel Dennis is likely to miss Watford's English Premier League clash on Wednesday due to injury.

This comes after he was stretched off in the 71st minute and replaced by Ashley Fletcher as the Hornets fell to a 4-2 loss to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

Dennis has been in a good run of form this season. He scored the second goal Watford to reduce the deficit and it came as a surprise that he was subsituted.

But following the match, it was confirmed that Dennis was taken off after taking a knock, and he could miss the next game against the leaders, Chelsea.

“With Dennis and Masina, I’m not sure at the moment. Tomorrow we’ll check everybody because Dennis came out and Masina didn’t finish well, Ranieri told Watford’s website. 

Losing Dennis will be a blow to Watford’s hopes of causing an upset against Thomas Tuchel’s man. The former Cologne striker has had a brilliant start to life at Vicarage Road since joining Club Brugge, according to Soccernet.ng.

The 24-year-old made history against the Foxes on Sunday as he became the sixth man in Premier League’s history to reach five goals and five assists in 12 or fewer games.
