Nigerian international, Emmanuel Dennis scored last night for Watford as Chelsea battled hard to retain their leadership of the English Premier League race.

The Super Eagles forward’s scored with a shot that deflected off Antonio Rudiger to equalize Chelsea’s opener by Mason Mount.

The game was halted for 32 minutes because of a medical emergency in the crowd.

Both sets of players left the pitch early in the first half while the fan, who had suffered cardiac arrest, was stabilized.

When they returned, Mason Mount gave the Blues the lead in the 29th minute with a first-time finish at the end of a lovely move involving Marcos Alonso and Kai Havertz.

Dennis then equalized for Watford when Ruben Loftus-Cheek lost possession and Moussa Sissoko set up the Nigerian who scored with the deflected shot.
