Nigerian forward Dennis Emmanuel got a goal and two assists for Watford against Manchester United at the Vicarage Road on Saturday.
He was the man of the match as the Hornets spanked Manchester United 4-1 and it was a result that led to the sacking of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Dennis 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.
Dennis then took the ball off the feat of his teammates and beat De Gea with a low shot from an acute angle.
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.
