Watford boss, Xiscos Munoz believes Nigerian striker, Emmanuel Dennis can keep up with his impressive form as the Hornets prepare to take on Tottenham on Sunday.
Dennis joined the Premier League side from Club Brugge in the summer and has been exceptional for Munoz’ men. The 25-year-old scored and provided an assist in his debut game against Aston Vill, as his team became 3-2 winners of the season’s opener.
However, against Brighton & Hove Albion, the West African did not have much of an impact, as they were handed their first defeat of the season.
He came in as a second-half substitute in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace in the League Cup and the tactician went on to laud the player.
“We knew about him, we saw videos of him and we knew his level.
“It is important he continues with the same. He gives us very good things in the last games and it is important to give this attitude and level in future games,” Munoz said as quoted by the club’s official portal.
After losing to the Seagulls in their last outing, the Spanish tactician will be leading his charges against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.
“It is important we come inside the game with a strong mentality and we are focused in the first minutes.
“We need to learn about the last situation [against Brighton] and need to prepare in the first minutes with high intensity, full power, and maximum focus. We stay together, stay narrow and make the most of any situation.
“We know about the level of our players, I know they all gave the best performance the other day and we will see what happens in the next game. We know our opponent, we know what we have in front [of us].
“We know they are very good in transition, it’s important we try to stop this situation. We will try to have more control of the ball than against Crystal Palace but it is important to not give them the space they want. It’s important we stay strong mentally and physically, and also it’s important that we play as a team,” Munoz continued.
Spurs have collected maximum points from Manchester City and Wolves after 1-0 scorelines.
