Odion Ighalo praised Watford striker and compatriot, Emmanuel Dennis for his outstanding efforts for the Hornets this season.
Dennis moved to Vicarage Road from Club Brugge last summer, and he has been nothing short of outstanding so far.
He has made no mistake in establishing himself as the team’s major outlet, as the 24-year-old has been involved in 14 of Watford’s 24 goals this season.

Ighalo is one of Watford’s all time top strikers in the premier league as he was a standout performer during his time at the club.
He has however been impressed with Dennis’ performances thus far.
“He’s a very good player, with good technique, he’s fast, he can score goals, he’s very intelligent,” Ighalo told Watford TV
“He just needs to keep fit and keep taking his chances and scoring goals.
“I think if the season is going to turn around, and they are going to be safe, then they have to keep Emmanuel Dennis, Sarr, and King firing. Get a couple of goals home and away; then I think the team can escape relegation.” He added.Embed from Getty Images
Watford are currently 19th in the Premier League, four points from safety. Dennis, on the other hand, has put on some excellent performances this season, so it would be surprising if he went down with them.
