There is so often a spike in form when a new manager is announced at a club but the appointment of Carvalhal who was deemed not good enough for Sheff Wed before Christmas does not inspire many. The Swans are in desperate trouble and Watford can compound their current miseries.

Swansea’s bid for promotion out of the Championship in the 2010-11 took an early boost when they travelled to Vicarage Road and came away with all three points. Brendan Rodgers’ men would run out 3-2 winners as they withstood a late Watford fightback and they would end season as winners of the play-offs.
