Carvalhal makes instant impact as Swansea shock Watford
Man United held to another draw
Carlos Carvalhal made the perfect start to life as Swansea manager as his team claimed two late goals at Watford to climb off the bottom of the Premier League.
Goals from Jordan Ayew and substitute Luciano Narsingh were enough to hand the Swans their fourth win of the season and meant West Brom head into today’s home match against Arsenal in 20th spot.
The Welsh side, who host Tottenham on Tuesday, are still 4-6 favourites with Betfred and Betfair to finish bottom while Alan Pardew’s Baggies are 5-1.
