Watford boss explains why Dennis was deployed as a center forward vs Manchester United
Watford manager Claudio Ranieri has explained his thinking behind playing Emmanuel Dennis as a center forward during his side’s 4-1 win over Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Hornets humiliated the Red devils with Dennis very influential for the home team, scoring once and setting up two of the goals.
The Nigeria international has played mostly as a left winger since his
move to Watford in the summer but was deployed in the number nine role against Manchester United.
Dennis swapped positions with Joshua King, with the Norwegian playing on the left side of a three-man attack, though the pair sometimes exchanged positions during the course of the game.
Only Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah (7), Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba (7) and Liverpool fullback
Trent Alexander-Arnold (6) have registered more assists than Dennis in the Premier League this season.
