Swansea City are in good form as they prepare to take on Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

The undefeated Swans are up to fourth in the Premier League table after recording two wins and two draws from their opening matches, including an opening-day stalemate against Chelsea and, most recently, a 2-1 win over Manchester United.

Worth noting though, is that Garry Monk’s side claimed both their victories at home but could only draw on the road, meaning they could be happy to return to Wales with just a point.

The Hornets have yet to record a victory on their return to the top flight. They managed to remain undefeated for the first three weeks, with draws against Everton, West Brom and Southampton, but slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Manchester City last time out.

Having failed to score since their opening-day clash with the Toffees, manager Quique Sanchez Flores will be desperate to keep the visitors out.

Swans boss Monk has only one injury concern ahead of the trip to England, with Ecuadorian winger Jefferson Montero returning from a thigh injury and should be fit enough to feature.

Watford have a couple of injury absentees in defence, with long-serving defender Lloyd Doyley still recovering from neck surgery, while Sweden international Joel Ekstrand has yet to return to action after injuring his anterior cruciate ligament last season.
