Watford manager Claudio Ranieri has praised Emmanuel Dennis, after continuing his goal scoring form by netting his sixth league goal this season in Wednesday’s 2-1 loss to Chelsea at Vicarage Road.
Dennis scored in his third straight league game after drawing Watford level, cancelling out Mason Mount’s opener.
Moroccan forward Hakim Ziyech then got the winner for the league leaders with a superb volley.
Despite the defeat, Ranieri praised Dennis for his quality in front of goal.
He also showered plaudits on every Watford player for their efforts.
“I am very happy with Emmanuel because straight away he wants to do something, I love these kinds of players,” Ranieri said after the game.
“He knows where the goal is and goes there straight away. But I think all the players put in fantastic performances.
“We continue to believe in our job. We are working very well and I hope our fans are proud of us, because we pushed the champions of Europe in every situation.”
