Swans in trouble after Mawson mistake gives Watford 1-0 win

David Moyes

Mawson's dawdling proved costly as the Hornets saw out the game to take the win and move on to 40 points, all-but assuring themselves of another season in the top flight.

Swansea stayed in the Premier League relegation zone after losing 1-0 to Watford following Alfie Mawson's mistake at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

"It was only West Ham where anxiety was there for everyone to see", he said.

For Swansea, though, the gloom deepens as they remain entrenched in the bottom three - the bright start to Paul Clement's tenure a distant memory - two points shy of fourth from bottom Hull.

Their sole consolation from another tough away afternoon came in the form of 17th-placed Hull City also losing, beaten 3-1 at Stoke City.

"For us it's about focusing on the task in hand and that is our game at Watford".

Gylfi Sigurdsson had the first chance in the ninth minute when he met Luciano Narsingh's cross from the right and after his first shot was well blocked by Adrian Mariappa, he forced keeper Heurelho Gomes into a smart save to his left.

Both sides welcomed back key strikers to their starting line-up; with Troy Deeney returning for Watford after being used as a substitute at Tottenham last weekend. Mawson made a catastrophic one when he dithered and lost the ball to Capoue who scored at the second attempt after Fabianski had saved well from his first.

The goalmouth action dried up in the final quarter, however, with the hosts content to drop deep, sit on their lead and keep Swansea at arm's length.

Swansea City boss Paul Clement makes three changes to his side for the trip to Watford in the Premier League.

"They had a hard defeat against Tottenham last week but we are expecting a big challenge, and I think every game is going to be a big challenge until the end of the season".

As for Watford, a third home win in succession means they will be playing Premier League football again next season, though Walter Mazzarri's own future remains less certain.
