Swansea City host Watford at the Liberty Stadium on Monday (Watch live, 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN and online via Live Extra) with the Swans desperate for three points to drag themselves out of the relegation zone.

With just one win in their last 12 games in all competitions, Swansea made a rather bizarre appointment on Monday with veteran Italian coach Francesco Guidolin joining until the end of the season as head coach to work alongside current interim boss Alan Curtis.


While Swansea try to preserve their Premier League status, newly-promoted Watford is flying and could move into the top half of the table with a win. Quique Sanchez Flores has built a strong team unit which is aided by the goals of Odion Ighalo and Troy Deeney but the Hornets have lost three on the spin so will look to put some more points on the board as quickly as possible..

In team news Swansea City bring in Jack Cork, while Watford make three changes with Cathcart, Ake  and Behrami in for Prodl, Holebas and Abdi.
