Swansea City v Watford: match preview

Contrasting results for these clubs last weekend, Swansea picked up a point at Wembley and Watford were hammered 6-0 at home by Manchester City. Marco Silva’s side, however, have won both of their away games this season while Swansea are pointless and goalless at home. Paul Clement could decide to give Wilfried Bony his first start since returning and Roque Mesa is also pushing for a starting place. Watford, meanwhile, are still without Sebastian Prödl and Younes Kaboul, both of whom are injured, and the suspended Miguel Britos. Stuart James

Leicester City v Liverpool: match preview

Liverpool visit Leicester City for the second time this week, after losing 2-0 in the Carabao Cup, and Jürgen Klopp has the task of arresting a poor run of two draws and two defeats with 10 goals conceded in all competitions. Craig Shakespeare is likely plotting a classic counter-attacking display from his side, to prey on their opponents frailties, and to record a third successive win against Liverpool for the first time since 1963.
