Garry Monk takes his Swansea City troops to Vicarage Road this Saturday to take on Quiqhe Flores’ newly promoted Watford.
Swansea have started the new Premier League campaign in fine form – they remain unbeaten after winning two and drawing two of their opening four league games. The Swans also progresses to the third round of the Capital One Cup, after comfortably seeing off League Two side York City.
As for Saturday’s hosts, they’ve taken three points from their opening fixtures. Although that may seem like a disappointing points return, the Hornets earned a very good point at Everton, drew with West Bromwich Albion and Southampton, and put in an admirable display in the eventual 2-0 defeat at Manchester City.
Watford have already proven that they’re going to be an extremely tough nut to crack this season. Garry Monk and his side will be taking nothing for granted, and the players will no doubt have to be in tip-top shape following the international break.
The Swans haven’t played Watford since a Championship fixture back in March 2011. We take a look at the last three encounters with the Hornets and what to expect from Flores’ side this weekend.
