SWANSEA 1-2 WATFORD
Highlights coming your way at 5.15pm on your mobile... Don't go anywhere.
FT: And there's the full-time whistle. A historic start for contrasting reasons at the Liberty Stadium.
Watford make it three top-flight away wins in a row for the first time in their history, while Swansea lose their third successive league game at home. The agony at the Liberty continues for the Swans...
90+4: Deeney takes it to the corner, Watford looking to run down the clock...
90+2: FIVE minutes added on. Any way back for the Swans?
GOAL! SWANSEA 1-2 WATFORD (Richarlison, 90)
And it's Richarlison who will steal the headlines!
Roque Mesa tries to be too clever and his pass ricochets off Deeney and falls for Richarlison, who storms towards Mawson.
Somehow the ball evades the Swansea defender and Richarlison bears down on goal and smashes it in off the bar.
SWANSEA 1-1 WATFORD
89: Tense times at the Liberty. Both teams are going for it which is great to see, can anyone steal the headlines?
87: The corner doesn't beat the first man! And Swansea clear... but Deeney then wins the ball back to start another Watford attack.
SAVE! Pereyra's cross is then laid off for Deeney, but he can't quite whip it past Fabianski, who makes a smart save.
85: Before it's taken, Bony comes off and here comes Renato Sanches!
Watford make a change too as Troy Deeney is on for Gray. Could the Watford club captain make an immediate impact?
84: Naughton all over Richarlison in the edge of the box but this time Lee Mason isn't interest... but Watford do have a corner...
82: And it is Carroll, but he cannot get it up and over the wall. 'Handball!' cry the home fans, but Richarlison's arms were clutched against his chest. Meanwhile, Bony goes in the book for a late tackle...
81: Abraham buys a free-kick just outside the box... minimal contact, if any, and there are a few Swansea players queuing up to take this one...
WHY SO GLUM?
Here's Abraham, CELEBRATING his equaliser. Perhaps a sign of his frustration having started on the bench?
77: Cleverley with a cross in and it appears to come off Gray last, but Watford have a corner. Swansea clear the danger momentarily, and a lazy offside then hands the hosts possession.
75: Second change for Watford, and it's the impressive Carrillo who comes off for Roberto Pereyra. Saying that, Carrillo, like most of Watford's attack, had little to shout about this half.
73: Hefty, but fair, challenge from Naughton and Holebas stays down. Mason urges the player back up which is good to see, and play goes on!
TAP, TAP, TAP IT IN
69: Another dangerous free-kick in from Carroll but Watford just about hook it clear. Little over 20 minutes to go and this game is anyone's for the taking. Swans on top, mind.
67: Swansea win a corner and Kabasele is waved back onto the pitch... Carroll, of course, is standing over this one... but Doucoure heads it straight back out for another corner. Take two for Carroll, and there is Kabasele of all people to head it away from danger.
65: CLOSE! Ayew plays a sumptuous ball out wide for Carroll, who takes his time to send in a cross. He picks out Bony but Kabasele bravely flies in before Mariappa blocks Abraham's effort.
Referee Lee Mason is then forced to stop play as Kabasele stays down with a head injury. No arguments really for the Swans, that was some gutsy defending.
62: Now it's time for Silva to look at his options and consider how they can stem the Swansea onslaught and repeat their first-half efforts. All Swansea, the hosts need to capitalise on this momentum.
60: The murmurs of discontent have well and truly gone at the Liberty. The Swans are in the ascendancy now, having had almost 70% of possession so far this half.
Swansea level at the Liberty and into 15/8 for all three points with Sky Bet. The draw is favoured at 11/10 while Watford can be backed at 3/1 - Wilfried Bony to score the third goal of the game has been PRICE BOOSTED to 8/1 from 7/1. Get all the in-play odds here.
GOAL! SWANSEA 1-1 WATFORD (Abraham, 56)
Was just about to say how the mood has lifted at the Liberty, and now they have a first home goal to celebrate this season!
The cross comes in and Bony can't quite connect with it, but he gets a second chance and forces a fine save from Gomes... but Abraham is there to tap in the rebound.
SWANSEA 0-1 WATFORD
55: Another wicked delivery in from Carroll and it earns Swansea a corner. Carroll with another opportunity to send one in...
OVER! The cross finds Fer, whose header appears to come off Kabasele but no subsequent corner is given.
53: OUCH! This one looks very nasty. Richarlison clutches his hand and is in absolute agony. Replays show that after he falls to ground, Ayew accidentally stamps on his wrist. Nothing intentional there, and thankfully the Watford man looks like he'll be okay to continue.
51: Clement barking instructions from the technical area. He will be desperate to see his side capitalise on this bright start to the half.
49: Different role for Ayew as he drops back a bit - he wins a free-kick for the Swans but they choose to play it round instead of pumping one into the box. Swansea on top so far this half.
47: So three new faces as we enter the second half. It makes sense for Swansea to mix things up and Abraham's first touch is a positive one. It also has an impact on the home fans, who are lifted by the youngster's presence.
Second half underway!
DOUBLE SUB! Tammy Abraham and Roque Mesa come on for Swansea, Clucas and Van der Hoorn make way. Change of shape, will Swansea see a change in fortunes?
Watford meanwhile bring on Molla Wague for Capoue, who was on a yellow card.
Watford still odds-on at 4/7 for victory with Sky Bet with the hosts trading at 6/1 and a draw 5/2. Andre Gray to score the second goal of the game has been PRICE BOOSTED to 10/1 from 9/1. Get all the in-play odds here.
HT: Carroll finding his range with his deliveries and Swansea now have a corner just before half-time... but no! Lee Mason blows his whistle and that is the end of the half. Frustration for Swansea, who trail to Andre Gray's first goal for Watford.
45: Carrillo fashions a chance from nothing and Watford have a corner... It's a dangerous ball in and Capoue almost picks up a loose ball but it's out for a goal-kick.
ONE minute of added time as Doucoure goes into the book for pulling back Fer.
44: WIDE! How has Bony sent this one beyond the far post?
It's a terrific cross from Carroll, and Bony has a free header from eight yards out but he can't quite connect with it properly. Let off for the visitors. Chances aplenty now.
42: JUST WIDE! So, so sloppy from Swansea. A terrible throw-in from Olsson bounces awkwardly for Mawson, he then brings it down and it's a terrible back pass from the defender, as Gray nips in to steal the ball, but he's at a narrow angle and glances his effort just wide of the far post.
40: Swansea go close again but it doesn't result in a shot on target. Olsson's cross almost finds Bony, but the ball ricochets off a couple of Watford defenders before making its way back kindly for Gomes.
38: Yet again, boos ring around the Liberty as they are forced to play it backwards. Mawson makes his point by urging more movement from the players up front. Frustration at boiling point in south Wales.
36: Another chance for Swansea to send one into the box. Carroll whips one in, Fernandez picks up the loose ball and plays it out wide for Naughton, whose awkward ball towards the back post is smothered by Gomes.
34: Heavy challenge from Capoue sees his name go into the book. Carroll's delivery into the box is not good enough though and Watford clear the danger.
SWANSEA 0-1 WATFORD
32: DISALLOWED GOAL! And boy are Swansea lucky. They're all over the place at the back as Carrillo sends in a cross. It falls to Holebas whose volley from 25 yards out is parried by Fabianski straight to Richarlison, who plays it over for Carrillo to tap in, but he's offside and the goal won't count.
Correct call too, about a yard off or so.
29: Now whistles from the home fans as Gomes bides his time before taking a goal-kick, could be a long afternoon for the Swansea faithful.
27: Groans from the home fans as they lose possession cheaply. They're replaced by ripples of applause as Renato Sanches heads out to warm up for the hosts. Unlikely to be a sub before half-time, but a change in personnel would certainly help the hosts.
GRAY AT THE LIBERTY
A first goal for Watford, and this is what it means for Andre Gray...
22: Almost midway through the half and the hosts have certainly upped their game since going a goal down. Slightly frustrating for the home fans though, to see that it takes a goal to wake them up.
CHALOBAH WATCHING ON
20: WIDE! A free-kick for Swansea finds Bony, but his header from about 15 yards out sails wide of the near post.
17: BIG CHANCE! Swansea have responded superbly since going a goal down and they really should be level. The cross comes in and Fer's header glances across goal and Fernandez is unable to tuck it away at the back post.
The Hornets in front and they have been clipped into 8/13 for victory by Sky Bet. The hosts are out to 9/2 with a draw on offer at 11/4 while Andre Gray to score a brace has been PRICE BOOSTED to 7/2 from 3/1. Get all the in-play odds here.
GOAL! SWANSEA 0-1 WATFORD (Gray, 13)
It's a first Watford goal for Andre Gray!
And it's Bony who gives the ball away to begin with for the Swans - Watford go on the counter and Gray plays it wide for Carrillo, whose cross is intercepted by Clucas, but it falls kindly for Gray who smashes it home.
SWANSEA 0-0 WATFORD
12: A lot of long balls forward from Swansea not finding their intended target so far. That target is indeed Bony, but he is being beaten in the air by one of Mariappa or Kabasele as it stands.
This time a Clucas ball forward does find Bony though, who lays off Ayew, but his attempted scoop to return the favour can only find Gomes.
