Betting tips and match preview | Premier League

Swansea welcome Watford to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with Swansea looking for their first win under new manager Bob Bradley.

Bradley’s side come into this match on the back of a thrilling 3-2 defeat away at Arsenal.

Two goals from Theo Walcott (26, 33) and a fine finish from Mesut Ozil (57) gave the home side a 3-1 lead.

The Swans refused to give up though, with Gylfi Sigurdsson (38) and González (66) ensuring the Gunners had a nervy finish.

Swans In Poor Form

Swansea come into this match in poor recent form, losing five of their last six fixtures.

They have had a tough run, with Southampton, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool but they have failed to register any points in those games.

It ultimately cost Francesco Guidolin his job, Bradley failed to fare any better in his opening match though.

Swansea are second bottom in the Premier League, with just four points from their opening eight matches, they need results and stability.

Swans Favourites

Despite finding themselves in the relegation zone and in dire form, Swansea are the favourites with bookmakers to win this match.

They will be looking to register their second win of the season, they will be looking to end a run of five defeats in their last six games.

Their recent record against Watford is good, winning three of their last five meetings.



Watford In Mixed Form

Watford travel to the Liberty Stadium in mixed form, they have failed to consistently produce results however.

Walter Mazzarri’s side have had a completely mixed bag in their last six, winning three, drawing one and losing two of their last six matches.

A stunning strike from Jose Holebas (54) was enough to earn the visitors all three points and consign Boro to another home defeat this season.

Watford Seek Momentum

Watford will have targeted back to back wins in this fixture against Swansea, Watford have won three of their last five Premier League games.

Despite a ropey start to the season, Walter Mazzari’s had turned the corner with successive wins against West Ham and Manchester United.

They do come into this match with another away win under their belt, consistency will be key going forward for the Hornets.

Watford Underdogs

Watford come into this match as underdogs, they will be looking to register their fourth win of this new Premier League season.

This will be a tough fixture for the Hornets, given their own mixed recent form and their inability to beat the sides in and around them.
