Following the conclusion of the last round of games last weekend, Newcastle legend, Alan Shearer is back with his team of the week.

The 24-year-old headed home a superb cross from Senegalese Ismaila Sarr for the game’s sole goal.

Dennis scored his ninth league goal in 22 games this season for the Hornets.  He’s now been involved in 58 percent of Watford’s Premier League goals this season (9 goals and 5 assists).

Dennis, Mohamed Salah and Wout Weghorst all make up a three man attack.

Harry Kane is also in the squad, joining Emile Smith Rowe and Joe Willock in a three-man combination.
