Watford Preview

Watford’s six-game winless streak in the Premier League ended on tuesday as they won 2-1 at home against Leicester. Despite the recent struggle, Watford still find themselves in 10th position in the standings with 25 points after 20 rounds, already eight points clear of the relegation zone. Watford have struggled to keep the ball out of their own net so far this season, as they hold one of the leakiest defences in the division with 35 goals conceded in 20 rounds. At the other end of the field, Watford managed to score 29 goals so far this season, including six from their top scorer Abdoulaye Doucoure. Richarlison has also been in fine shape throughout this campaign, helping the team with five goals and four assists in his 20 league appearances. Their home form has been a complete mixed bag with five defeats, two draws and three wins in their last ten home games across all competitions. The good news is that Watford have won their last two home meetings with Swansea in the Premier League, keeping a clean sheet in each of these.

Watford Team News

Will Hughes, Miguel Britos, Isaac Success, Kiko, Roberto Pereyra and Tommy Hoban are all doubts, bur Craig Cathcart, Nathaniel Chalobah and Younes Kaboul are still missing through injury. In addition, Troy Deeney is out through suspension.

Swansea City Preview

On the flip side, Swansea have only won three of their 20 league outings so far this season and are currently rock bottom of the table with just 13 points after 20 rounds, already five points behind safety. They looked terrible at both ends of the field, but their inefficient attack has definitely been the main reason for their disappointing season. The Swans have only scored eleven goals in 20 games, which is definitely the worst attacking record in the division. Chelsea’s loanee Tammy Abraham has been Swansea’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, helping the team with four goals and one assist in his 19 league appearances. Away from home, Swansea are currently on a seven-game losing streak in the Premier League, having scored just three goals in the proces. In addition, the Swans have conceded at least two goals in five of their last seven league trips. Furthermore, Swansea have failed to score in their most recent two visits to the Vicarage Road Stadium.

Swansea City Team News

Leon Britton and Sung-Yueng Ki are both doubts, while Bony Wilfried is out through a hamstring injury.
