Swansea City succumbed to an away defeat against Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday. Watford were looking to get back winning ways after losing 2-0 to Brentford in their previous fixture. Swansea were looking to extend their winning run after a 2-1 victory against Derby County. This left, Watford are in 2nd place on the table and has 91 points while Swansea sit in 4th with 80 points after 46 matches.

After an un-eventful first half, Watford applied pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to Andre Gray finding the net in the 56th minute. The Hornets then scored once more and increased their lead thanks to a goal from Isaac Success just before the final whistle with a final score of 2-0.
