SWANSEA are on the lookout for their first home goal and win as Watford visit the Liberty on Saturday afternoon.

Despite a solid start and an away victory at Crystal Palace, the Swans were tonked 4-0 by Manchester United and edged out 1-0 by Newcastle last time out on home soil.

Paul Clement’s Swansea side are now 13th in the Premier League table

With new signings Wilfried Bony and Renato Sanches starting to bed in to life in South Wales, Paul Clement will hope to get home points on the board against the Hornets.

Watford were going along quite nicely until Manchester City came to town, hitting them for six and inflicting a first defeat of the season.

But it’s been a decent start, with two wins and two draws putting them 11th going into this.
