 Dennis claims Watford’s player, goal of the month awards

Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Dennis has won English Premier League side Watford’s Player of The Month and Goal of The Month awards for November.

Watford announced the Nigeria forward’s victory on their website on Saturday.

He piped Joshua King, Leanne Bell, and Anne Meiwald to claim the best player’s award, while his goal against Leicester beat others from King, Bell, Emma Beckett, João Pedro, and Ismaïla Sarr to the best goal award.

The November award was the second time the Nigerian was claiming the club’s best player award after earlier winning in August.

“In-form forward Emmanuel Dennis has been crowned the winner of both the Stake Player of the Month and Goal of the Month awards for November.

“The Nigeria international has enjoyed a highly successful start to life at Watford, with this his second Player of the Month gong of the season, having won it previously in August.

“Dennis scored two goals and provided two assists over a month which saw the Hornets face stiff competition, with matches against Arsenal, Manchester United, and Leicester City.

“The pick of the bunch from last month’s goals was Dennis’ clever finish against the Foxes on November 28. Despite the snowy conditions around him, Dennis showed composure and skill to take a stuttered touch in front of goal to trick the opposition, before lifting the ball over goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel,” Watford wrote on their website.

He is also in contention for the Premier League’s Player of The Month award.

The 24-year-old has scored six goals and provided five assists in 14 league games for Warford this season.
