Watford – Swansea Preview

  • Despite losing 2-0 last time out, Watford have earnt their second place and a Premier League spot next season. Clinical operators, the ‘Hornets’ have won ‘to nil’ in seven of their last 12 matches – nine of which ended with under 2.5 goals – and have netted the opener in a league-high 31 games (W24, D5, L2).
  • Even more impressive is Watford’s current eight-game HT/FT winning run here, during a period that saw them concede just once. Having netted 12 goals on or before the 30th minute across that stint of fixtures, it’s no coincidence that the hosts boast the league’s best home record – picking up a remarkable 56 points (W18, D2, L2). There’s still reason for caution, however, as the last six league H2Hs here are split evenly (W3, L3).
  • Arriving at Vicarage Road with just one loss in their last six Championship fixtures (W3, D2), Swansea City have netted two or more goals in all five of those unbeaten results. Fast starters this campaign, the ‘Swans’ have won each of their 16 league games when leading at HT and will be looking to capture another victory here in their 51st competitive H2H (W23, D10, L17) to further improve form ahead of the play-offs.
  • With the Welshmen claiming an impressive average of 2.82 points per fixture from the 11 away games in which they scored first this Championship campaign (W10, D1), a good start appears vital. However, the visitors have won just once on the road this season against the Championship’s top six (D1, L2).
  • Players to watch: Andre Gray led the line for Watford last time out and has three career H2H goals. Swansea’s fellow Jamaican Jamal Lowe has five goals from his last seven appearances and bagged a goal in each half in the reverse H2H.
  • Hot stat: The last four competitive H2Hs saw Watford score first and ended via a 2-1 scoreline (either way).
