Picking the Best Potential Watford Lineup to Face Swansea City on Saturday

​Watford host ​Swansea City in their last ​Premier League clash of 2017. 


The Hornets ended their six game winless run in their Boxing Day match against Leicester City. After falling down the table for some weeks, manager Marco Silva will hope to find the form his side had at the start of the season.


Here's how Watford could lineup on Saturday:

Goalkeeper

  • Gomes
    Gomes1

Heurelho Gomes keeps his place in goal.

Defence

  • Janmaat
    Janmaat2
  • Wague
    Wague 13
  • Kabasele
    Kabasele27
  • Marvin Zeegelaar
    Marvin Zeegelaar0

​In the face of multiple injuries in defence, Molla Wague stepped up for just his second appearance for ​Watford this season and surprisingly scored against ​Leicester. He could be handed another start on Saturday.


With Kiko Femenia still out with a hamstring strain, Daryl Janmaat could continue at right-back. Christian Kabasele and Marvin Zeegelaar could also keep their places. 

Midfield

  • Cleverley
    Cleverley8
  • Doucouré
    Doucouré16
  • Watson
    Watson23

​Boss Marco Silva could opt for a midfield three once again on Saturday, as he contends with multiple injuries. 


Ben Watson could be handed just his third start all season and lineup alongside midfield regulars Tom Cleverley and Abdoulaye Doucoure.


Doucoure has been a standout player for Watford this term. The midfielder has six goals in the Premier League this season. 

Forwards

  • Hughes
    Hughes19
  • Richarlison
    Richarlison11
  • Carrillo
    Carrillo28

​The Hornets could welcome back Will Hughes to the starting lineup after he recovered from a thigh injury. He could take the place of Roberto Pereyra who picked up a knock in his last game. 


Richarlison led the front line against Leicester can could do so again in the absence of Troy Deeney, who is currently serving a four match ban. Andre Carrillo could complete Watford's front three.
