Emmanuel Dennis to miss Watford last Premier League game

The Hornets welcome Leicester City in their final home game of the season, but one of their Nigerian stars will not be available 

Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Dennis will not be available when Watford welcomes Leicester City in their final home game.

It has been a dismal campaign for the Hornets. Watford’s relegation status was confirmed last week after their 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace. The team has struggled on both ends of the pitch- they have the second-worst defence and have scored just 32 in 36 games.

However, despite their pathetic season, Dennis has shone like a million stars. The former Club Brugge man has been involved in half of his team’s goals this season.

Unfortunately, he would not be available for the Hornets’ final home game because of a knee injury.

Dennis’ absence would be a big miss, as he is the most prolific player on Watford’s roster. He also bagged a goal when Leicester City defeated Watford 4-2 in the first leg of the fixture.
