Comments:

League position: 12th Odion Iglaho's goal was the first that Watford had scored at home in 2015-16 and the 100th scored at Vicarage Road in the Premier League. He had now scored 18 goals in 23 league appearances in 2015; the most by any player in England's top four divisions. Etienne Capoue was booked in the second minute of added time in the second half.

Comments:

League position: 7th This was Swansea City's first defeat of the 2015-16 season and they had lost only two of their previous nine Premier League games (won five) although they had now kept only one clean sheet in their last seven league away games. This was Jonjo Shelvey's first appearance for the Swans after he had become their first-ever player to win a senior England cap (versus San Marino on 5 September 2015). Ki Sung-yueng was booked within 99 seconds of coming off the bench.
