Swansea City v Watford Preview, Premiership, Monday 18th January 2016.

Welsh side Swansea City haven’t started this year how they would of hoped with three straight loses in a row and what’s worse is although they can be expected to lose against the likes of Manchester United, the loss in the FA Cup against Oxford United is deemed as unacceptable. They followed the FA Cup 3rd round loss with a battle at home against Sunderland who also managed to pull one over Swansea City with a Jermain Defoe hat-trick ended the game 4 – 2. A loss against Watford at home is another they really need to win because of of yesterday Swansea City are now in the relegation drop zone with Newcastle United beating high flying West Ham.

Watford were doing exceptionally well last year and are another team struggling since the Christmas break with loses against Manchester City and Southampton. They did however beat Newcastle United in the FA Cup 3rd round and now face an away tie to Nottingham Forest in the next round. Watford recently have slipped down the table somewhat with them now in twelfth position although a good win on Monday night could see them climb as high as seventh. They then welcome Newcastle United to their ground, as well as Chelsea after the FA Cup break. Tottenham Hotspurs away will complete the next five fixtures, with that and Chelsea set to be their toughest test.

Swansea City Team News:

Swansea City’s Kyle Naughton has appealed against the red card who won against Sunderland last Wednesday and has a good case as he hopes to play against Watford. If that fails we should see Angel Rangel fill in for the full-back which is also the only issue Alan Curtis has right now as he comes into this fixture with a fully fit squad.

Watford Team News:

Watford welcome back Chelsea loanee Nathan Ake after his three match suspension when he was dismissed against Tottenham Hotspurs back at the end of December. Manager Quique Sanchez Flores only has the two injuries for this game with Tommie Hoban (groin) and Joel Ekstrand (knee) still missing.

Swansea City v Watford Head to Head Statistics:

In the last five head to head fixtures we have seen Swansea City just come out on top with two away wins against Watford back in 2010. This season however Watford have already beaten Swansea City at home and hope to make it another win this coming Monday. In total we only have the ten games recorded where Watford are out in front with five wins and three loses, leaving the last two games ending as draws.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the ten games played out between these two sides there has been a total of twenty five goals scored. This is going to give us a goals per game average of 2.5 which isn’t very accurate when looking at the last five games played. I do feel the below option could be a good one for this game.

Neither of these two sides have done well this side of Christmas although at least Watford have won a game in 2016 which was the FA Cup 3rd round tie against Newcastle United. On paper both teams in the last five games played are equal with form, yet Swansea City have lost some silly fixtures including that against Oxford United.

Swansea City v Watford Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Premiership action on Monday night witnesses two teams struggling this side of Christmas with only Watford being the team to have at least won a game. It was an important win and against good opponents as Newcastle United crashed out of the FA Cup with an away 1 – 0 loss. Swansea City on the other hand have lost three games which started with an away 2 – 1 loss at Old Trafford against Manchester United, which to be honest is more than acceptable. But then I have no idea how they managed to lose 3 – 2 to Oxford United who play in the lowly League Two division. Sunderland are fighting for their own survival so losing to them at home clearly showed it was Sunderland who have the more desire to stay in the Premiership come the end of this season.

Swansea City have slipped into the relegation zone after Saturdays results, which did see Newcastle United manage a win against the high flying West Ham United. The two swapped positions with that Newcastle win, although could swap again if Swansea City do manage to beat Watford at The Liberty Stadium come Monday night. As said Watford have slipped down the table themselves yet a win on Monday night could see them jump way back up to seventh position just above Stoke City, yet will depend on the score as Stoke City do have the better goal difference even if it is only slight.

My predictions for Monday nights game does seem to be leaning more towards the two clubs drawing the game, with the other potentially seeing Watford manage a small win margin by a single goal. Anyway for my banker I am going to go with both teams to score and for the clubs to draw the game after ninety minutes. The other I am going for is Watford to win the game with a correct scoreline guess of 1 – 0. I do think this game will be open and end to end, but maybe just be the one or two goals in it.
