Premier League: Dennis In Action As Saka Inspires Arsenal To Victory Vs Watford

Emmanuel Dennis was in action for 90 minutes but was unable to prevent Watford from going down to a 3-2 defeat against Arsenal at the Vicarage Road on Sunday.

Dennis had the ball in the net after 17 seconds, only to be flagged offside.

The Nigerian missed Watford’s best chances after that, seeing one low effort scrambled away by Aaron Ramsdale and later missing a glorious opportunity when he failed to connect properly with a low cross at the far post.

His compatriot, Samuel Kalu made his debut for Watford in the game.

Watford responded well, with Cucho Hernandez netting the equalizer with a stunning overhead kick six minutes later.

Arsenal regained the lead through Saka on half hour mark.

The Gunners extended their lead shortly after half-time when Gabriel Martinelli rifled home from outside the box .

Moussa Sissoko pulled a goal back in the 87th minute with an angled finish to set up a nervy finale.
