Swansea had not scored at the Liberty Stadium before this game and Watford had not conceded away from home – all things pointed to a Watford win.
Things looked like they where heading that way when Watfords new signing Andre Gray stabbed home the opener in the 13th minuet. 1 – 0 Watford. Swanseas defence looked leaky throughout the first half and after a mistake by Mawson Gray was handed another opportunity he could not convert.
Watford seemed to be firmly in the driving seat, a place they had been in all season until being humbled at home last weekend by City. Swansea ended the first half with more confidence and seemed to be getting a hold on the game.
Wilfred Bony headed wide a sitter just before the break and Swansea kept this confident chance creating enters up in the second half as they searched for an equaliser. This equaliser and Swanseas first home goal of the season came in the 57th.
Tammy Abraham converted from close ranger after Watford failed to clear their lines. 1 – 1, The goal may have been scrappy but it was mightily important for the home side whose confidence grew even more.
Andre Ayew and Roque Mesa where to thank for that. Pulling the strings and being calm on the ball. Entering the last 10 minuets Watford started pushing Swansea back creating more and more chances.
Deeney forced a brilliant save from Fabianski in minuet 86 and 4 minuets later Swanseas leaky and unconfident defending came back to haunt them as Richarlison ran through and with a cheeky dink broke the home fans hearts. 2 – 1 Watford.
