Shearer: Dennis can fire Watford to Prem safety

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer believes Nigerian striker Emmanuel Dennis could be key for Watford’s Premier League survival.

The Hornets are teetering one point above 18th-placed Norwich City, although they have two games in hand over the Canaries.

“My answer is I hope Watford don’t have enough, me being a Newcastle fan, I hope Newcastle are the team that gets out,” Shearer told BBC’s Match of the Day.

“But they’ve got Dennis up front, he’s unpredictable and a bit of quality. They also had three debutants on Saturday at Newcastle and they seemed to gel pretty quickly, so it’s going to go right to the wire I think.

“Claudio Ranieri’s certainly got the experience, you’re talking about a title-winning manager there. But then again if you look at Eddie Howe, Sean Dyche and Dean Smith, there’s an argument for each club. I couldn’t call it.”
