Watford were on the verge of picking just a point at the Carrow Road against Norwich City in match week five of the English Premier League but the African presence saved the day for the Hornets.
The Hornets looked hungrier for goals with Nigeria international, Emmanuel Dennis exuding energy any time he is found with the ball in Norwich goal area.
Watford broke the deadlock with just 17 minutes played when Kiko drove in an in-swinger with Dennis rising above all the Norwich defence to head home the opener.
Watford were however unlucky when a defensive error made room for Norwich striker, Teemu Pukki to smash home the equalizer behind goalkeeper Ben Foster in the 35th minute leaving the game now open.
Watford refueled and came up with a different energy, taking the game to the home side in full swing.
Senegal winger, Ismaila Sarr made his presence felt when he positioned himself right to coolly and beautifully tap home Joshuah King’s assist from close range on the 63rd minute to send Watford ahead once again.
The 23-year-old lanky winger picked up a pass just around Norwich’s third half, made a solo effort and fired home the third but the goal was caught in the web of VAR.
Fortunately for the former Rennes winger, the goal was allowed with Xisco’s men picking all three points from the Carrow Road in a 3-1 score line.
Sarr has made five appearances this season, scoring three goals with no assist.
Watford have moved into 11th with a respectable 6 points after five games.
