Abdoulaye Doucouré with a cynical foul pulling back Leroy Fer as he looked to break towards the Watford goal. He receives a deserved yellow card from Lee Mason. Andre Carrillo has caused all sorts of problems for the hosts in this first half. His driving run down the right sees him muscle past Mawson at the byline and eventually win a corner for his side, which is ultimately wasted. Swansea are imporving towards the latter stages of this half, at least giving their fans some hope of a comeback. Carroll's inch-perfect free kick is somehow missed by the heads of both Bony and Mike Van der Hoorn who looked to nod home at the far post. Vital defensive clearance from former Barnsley defender Mawson denies Watford a second. The England under-21 defender then inexplicably switches off at the back, his weak pass providing Gray with a shooting opportunity from a tight angle, which agonisingly creeps past the far post.
Ayew does well to hook a cross to find Bony from the byline. The Ivorian striker forces a save from Gomes at his second swipe of the ball, his shot is parried and Abraham was on hand to tap in and grab his second goal in Swansea colours. There's a combative edge developing to the match as it's Ayew's turn to be clattered.

Another wicked delivery from Carroll is well cleared for a corner by Femenía, which is headed over inside the six-yard box by Fer. Following Watford's first-half domination, there's a much more even feel to the second half. A break in play as £11. 5m-rated Richarlison is writhing around on the deck with a painful looking wrist injury. Bony and Abraham look to flourish early in their new strike partnership with the substitute caught on his heels as Bony slips through a pass behind Kabasele, which the 19-year-old can't reach. With Roque Mesa and Abraham both on the ball early in this second half the Swans have started brightly following the interval.
Swansea continute their dismal record of only managing a feeble seven shots on target this season in the Premier League. Contrasting fortunes for Watford who are on course to win three consecutive top-flight away matches for the first time in their history. HALF TIME: A chorus of boos ring around the Liberty as Paul Clement's side again fail to muster a goal in front of their own fans. Andre Gray's first goal for Watford is the difference as he capitalised on some sloppy play at the back to poke home from close range, characteristic of the Swans performance so far.
Swansea City v Watford Live Commentary & Result, 23/9/17, Premier LeaguePaul Clement will point to a renewed second-half vigour brought about by the introduction of Abraham at half time as the Chelsea loanee levelled the scoring on 56 minutes. Failing to find a second as they laid siege on Gomes' goal they were punished by Richarlison's late strike giving Watford that winning feeling on the road for the third time this season. They travel to the Hawthorns next to face West Bromwich Albion, while Swansea face West Ham United in East London.

Lee Mason is again in the thick of it, taking time out to chat to Marco Silva on the touchline as he over-enthusiastically begs for a penalty. In reality it was a weak claim. Bony is booked for a desperate challenge on José Holebas as he races back to try and regain possession. His tackle is not timed well as he clatters into the left back. Mariappa pleads with Lee Mason as the referee awards Swansea a free kick just 20 yards from Watford's goal just right of centre. From Carroll's left-footed curling strike it is then the home sides side's turn to protest as the try and claim a penalty for a handball.
Jose Holebas is incensed by Lee Mason's decision not to award him a free kick on the edge of the box, yet the visitors again fall into a settled spell of possession. Clement has already sent three substitutes to warm up down the touchline including the attacking options of summer signings Renato Sanches and Tammy Abraham. The home crowd are on their players backs as a misplaced pass from Olsson garners groans from the Swansea fans. Ayew is a slight bright spark though, winning a couple of free kicks for his side, neither though causing any danger to a Watford defence that are yet to concede on the road this season. Gray continues his impressive start to the match with some good old fashioned hold up play, shielding the ball from Alfie Mawson but no Watford midfielder is available to find as Gray turns back into space and the move breaks down. As things stand Watford sit fifth in the Premier League table and look great value for their lead.

Olsson's cross is overhit and runs all the way across the box to Kyle Naughton waiting on the right wing who produces possibly the worst cross of the Premier League season so far lofting it into the hands of Gomes. Troy Deeney is warming up and looking likely to be introduced sharpish by Watford boss Silva. Gray has really struggled to get involved in the second half.

CHANCE! A great burst down the right from Femenia, he pulls it back to Gray lurking on the edge of the box but the former Burnley striker sees his goalbound effort deflected wide for a corner. Sam Clucas gives away a needless free-kick around 30 yards from goal but Marco Silva is left frustrated as Watford fail to cause any danger to Lukasz Fabianski's goal. Watford have held the majority of the possession in the opening stages, perhaps hoping to capitalise on an edgy home crowd that are yet to see their side score at the Liberty this season. We're underway! Bony starts the action at the Liberty Stadium with Swansea in their traditional all white home kit, Watford play in an all red away strip.
Oddly Bony, on his first Premier League start of the season, wears the number two shirt for the Swans. The Welsh club's manager Clement will hope the Ivorian can link up better with new strike partner Jordan Ayew than he did there as Swansea broke towards the edge of Heurelho Gomes' box. Watford have been absolutely dominant in this match so far, just lacking a cutting edge up front. However, Swansea pose their first threat with Leroy Fer breaking from halfway but failing to find an incisive pass through to Bony.

Finally some restbite for the visitors as they press forcing Fer into a mistake on the half-way line. Breaking into the box Richarlison slips at the vital moment as he looks to get a shot off. Kabasele, who took a knock from Bony just before Abraham's chance, is back on his feet. It's one-way-traffic and unrelenting pressure from the hosts as Ayew wins a free kick from the stricken Kabasele. CHANCE! Abraham was poised to fire home his second of the game as Carroll again causes problems with his crossing quality. A fine last-ditch sliding tackle from Adrian Marriapa denies Abraham on the edge of the six-yard box.

FULL TIME: Swansea City 1-2 Watford - The Watford fans are delighted! Summer signing Richarlison proved his worth as he raced clear in the 90th minute to grab a third win in three Premier League away games under Marco Silva. Watford are seeing added time out very professionally and finally seem to have got back into their rhythm that saw them put in such a dominant first half performance. Goal scorer Richarlison has another penalty claim waved away as the Hornets have five minutes of injurty to see through and collect the thre points. Richarlison is handed a yellow card by referee Lee Mason for his over excuberant celebration in front of the Watford fans.
Claims for a penalty diverted away by referee Mason as Christian Kabasele is accused of handball inside the box. T. Abraham M. van der Hoorn Clement has been proactive with two substitutions as Watford get us underway in the second half. Abraham replaces Van der Hoorn in a bold attack-minded move. Substitution Etienne Capoue Molla Wagué Substitution Sam Clucas Roque Mesa Quevedo Clement may look to introduce some more attacking-minded talent at his disposal from the bench if this game continues in a similar vein. His most likely options would be Wayne Routledge, into his seventh season at the club, Tammy Abraham who bagged 23 goals for Bristol City last season or Portuguese international Renato Sanches.
Gomes did well to shuffle across his line and push the ball out for another corner. GOAL! Watford take the lead. Andre Gray pokes home from close range as he connects with Andre Carrillo's cross six yards from goal. The Hornets broke down the right following Bony's misplaced pass looking for Sam Clucas. Gray's first for his new club.

Marco Silva looks dumbfounded on the sideline pondering why his side have been so overawed in the last 15 minutes. Olsson looks to break down the left to deliver a trademark cross in the box but he's well marshalled away by Femenia who wins his side a throw to relieve some pressure. Chelsea loannee Abraham has made a real difference in terms of the hosts attacking threat, the youngster providing an impressive focal point lacking prior to his introduction. Swansea have had 70% of the possession following the break, demonstrating their dominance. GOAL! Clement's changes have really altered the game and it comes to fruition! The front three of Ayew, Bony and goal scorer Abraham are all involved as the Liberty sees its first home goal of the season.
Referee Lee Mason is not the most popular man among the Swans fans as he pedantically forces Martin Olsson to retake his throw. Swansea waste a free kick in a central position 30 yards out. Tom Carroll's whipped cross is too far from goal and Bony can't generate the neccessary power to test Gomes. The goal has really brought this game to life. A very positive start for Watford looking for their third consecutive win on the road this season. They again control possession as the near capacity crowd is growing increasingly frustrated. Nearly an instant reprieve for the hosts as they can't turn a goalmouth scramble home at the far post.
