The Premier League continues with the sixth week of the 38-week season. Here is everything you need to know about Swansea City versus Watford.
Swansea City is meeting Watford on their own turf at Liberty Stadium on Saturday as the Premier League enters Matchday 6 of the 38-week season.

About 250 Premier League games this season will be televised on NBC, NBC SN and CNBC or available for streaming on NBC Sports Live. Another 130 games will be available exclusively on NBC Sports Gold.
Watford will be keen on erasing the memory of a 6-0 beatdown at the hands of Manchester City last weekend, but Swansea is coming off an impressive 0-0 draw away at Tottenham.
The Welsh side has to start picking up three points as they only have one win this season. Even though it’s early, Swansea sits just one point above the relegation zone.
In order for that to happen, they must put the ball in the back of the net. The Swans have just two goals this season, one from Tammy Abraham and one from Jordan Ayew.
Meeting them is a Watford side led by Frenchman Abdoulaye Doucoure, who is enjoying his best run of form in the Premier League.
Scoring just one goal in his first two league seasons, Doucoure has a pair in five this year.
