Nigerian forward, Dennis Emmanuel has expressed excitement after he put up a stellar performance to ensure Watford beat Manchester United by 4-1 at the Vicarage Road on Saturday, November 19, 2021.

He was the stand-out performer for the Hornets as they spanked United - a result that has led to the sacking of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Dennis got a goal and set up Joshua King to fire Watford ahead, with Ismaïla Sarr doubling the lead before half-time.

Donny van de Beek’s headed effort halved United’s deficit before Dennis helped João Pedro restore Watford’s lead with another goal.

Speaking after the game, the 22-year-old talked through the build-up to Watford’s fourth goal of the game and his fourth strike of the season.

“I’m really happy for him,” said the forward. “He was emotional, which is normal, this is the Premier League. I’m happy I could give him the assist.

“I was running and I thought Cucho [Hernández] was going to chest it to me but he took it for himself. The defender was on Cucho so I took the ball, I knew he was going to stay with Cucho, and then the good finish.

“It [the win] was really important with the big games coming up, we’re really happy,” he said.
