Tammy Abraham notched his second league goal of the season as Swansea City suffered a 2-1 defeat to Watford.

The Anglo-Nigerian was introduced as a sesecond-half substitute and went on to impress 10 minutes later with a goal for the hosts.

Andre Gray broke the deadlock for Marco Silva’s men 13 minutes into the ecounter with a powerful shot inside the penalty area as Watford maintained their lead into the interval.

Abraham replaced Mike van der Hoorn immediately after the restart and converted a rebound after Gomes tried to save Wilfried Bony’s shot in the 56th minute.
