Swansea City are in desperate need of a win when they visit Watford in the Premier League on Saturday.

Paul Clement initially looked like inspiring a turnaround at the Liberty Stadium but the Swans' form has since flatlined, with the Welsh club now winless in five matches.

Position Watford players
Goalkeepers Gomes, Pantilimon, Arlauskis
Defenders Britos, Prodl, Cathcart, Holebas, Kabasele, Zuniga, Janmaat, Mariappa, Mason
Midfielders Doucoure, Behrami, Amrabat, Watson, Capoue, Cleverley
Forwards Deeney, Success, Okaka, Niang

Watford's injury situation is starting to ease, with Ben Watson, Sebastian Prodl and Valon Behrami all facing late fitness tests. Younes Kaboul, Mauro Zarate and Roberto Pereyra are definitely out and Miguel Britos is suspended.

Troy Deeney and Etienne Capoue were restricted to places on the bench for the defeat to Tottenham due to fatigue, but should be available to return to the lineup after a week off, while Christian Kabasele is building up his fitness.

Potential starting XI: Gomes; Janmaat, Cathcart, Mariappa, Holebas; Capoue, Doucoure, Cleverley; Amrabat, Deeney, Niang.

Position Swansea players
Goalkeepers Fabianski, Nordfeldt
Defenders Amat, Naughton, Fernandez, Van der Hoorn, Mawson, Kingsley, Olsson
Midfielders Ki, Britton, Routledge, Montero, Sigurdsson, Fulton, Fer, Narsingh, Carroll
Forwards Llorente, Borja, McBurnie, Ayew

Jack Cork has been ruled out for Swansea with an ankle injury, with Leon Britton - who is working his way back from a hamstring issue himself - Ki Sung-Yueng and Jay Fulton the contenders to replace him.

Fernando Llorente is likely to come back into the lineup in place of Jordan Ayew, but Angel Rangel and Nathan Dyer remain sidelined.

Potential starting XI: Fabianski; Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson; Fer, Ki, Carroll; Routledge, Llorente, Sigurdsson.


Changing managers at the right time has become something of an art form in the Premier League relegation battle, and Swansea City may just have moved too early.

They seemed to have little choice but to make another switch as Bob Bradley struggled to get results during his short-lived spell in charge, and Paul Clement inspired a quick turnaround in fortunes.

It has proved more of a honeymoon period than real change, though, and the Swans are now struggling again and have been overtaken by Hull City and Crystal Palace.

As things stand, both of the two clubs immediately above them look much more capable of finding points somewhere - Hull at home, where they have been excellent under Marco Silva, and Palace just about anywhere as one of the form teams in the division.

Swansea, on the other hand, are lacking a regular supply of goals - though having Fernando Llorente fully fit will help - and are not quite defensively tight enough to grind out narrow victories.

This is another match, against a decent but not outstanding mid-table team whose season is just about over, that they must capitalise on to have any chance of retaining their Premier League status.
