Dennis Looking To Stand Alone As 13th Nigerian Top Scorer In Premier League History

Emmanuel Dennis will be seeking to score his second Premier League goal for Nothingham Forest Saturday afternoon when they host Liverpool at the City Ground.

The 24 year old scored his opening goal for Forest in the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa a forthnight ago and a goal Saturday against a team he has fired blanks against in two appearances will take his total tally to 12 in 41 appearances.

The Nigerian made his Premier League debut last season for Watford and went on to score 10 goals in his debut season in the competition. That made him to become the 16th Nigerian to score at least 10 goals in the history of the competition.

His first Premier League for Forest drew him level with Ade Akinbiyi and Ademola Lookman who scored 11 goals each in 76 and 96 appearances respectively in the competition.

Dennis will also be looking to win his seventh Premier League game in 41 appearances. The Super Eagle has won just six times and lost 30 times in the competition.
