League position: 10th Watford had now won one of their last eight games in the Premier League (lost six). The Hornets had now dropped more points from winning positions than any other team so far in this Premier League season (16). André Carrillo became Watford's 14th different scorer so far in this Premier League; the most of any club in the division.

League position: 19th Two days after his appointment, this was new manager Carlos Carvalhal's first game in charge. This was Swansea City's second win in their last 13 Premier League games (lost nine). With 16 points from 21 games, the Swans now had one more point than at the same stage of the previous season.
