FOCUS ON: The Premier League's promoted clubs

17th June

With Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich City joining the Barclays Premier League this season, we take a look at the newly-promoted clubs and their key stats.

How did they gain promotion?
Bournemouth won a host of admirers during 2014-15 as they won the Championship title in style.
The Cherries scored over 100 goals in all competitions - including 98 in the league - as they booked a place in the Barclays Premier League for the first time thanks to a final-day win at Charlton.

Manager - Eddie Howe
The former Bournemouth man is a firm fans' favourite at the club having made over 250 appearances in two separate spells on the south coast. Howe was given the manager's job in January 2009 and despite leaving for an 18-month spell at Burnley, he returned to the south coast in 2013 and guided the club to two promotions in the space of three seasons.

Captain - Tommy Elphick
Elphick joined the club from Brighton in 2012 and was immediately appointed as captain. He helped Bournemouth win promotion to the Championship in his first full season and has played over 100 games for the club.

Key player last season - Callum Wilson
Wilson enjoyed a remarkable first season at the club, scoring 20 league goals as Bournemouth lifted the Championship title.

Stadium - Goldsands Stadium
Bournemouth moved into the now Goldsands Stadium in November 2001 after leaving their old Dean Court ground. Despite only having three stands for a number of years, the stadium will be the smallest to ever grace the Barclays Premier League with an 11,000 capacity.

When do we play them?
The Swans host Bournemouth on November 21 before travelling to the south coast on March 21.

How did they gain promotion?
A fantastic second half to the season saw the Hornets win 15 of their last 21 games - losing three of the other six matches.
They actually went into the final game of the season leading the Championship, only for a last-gasp equaliser from Sheffield Wednesday denying them silverware, with Bournemouth instead winning the division.
Slavisa Jokanovic led them to promotion, having taken over from Billy McKinlay in October. However, the former Yugoslavia international left Vicarage Road and took up the managerial role at Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Watford won 25 of their 46 league games, and were second-highest scorers in the Championship with 91 goals.

Manager - Quique Flores
The former Real Madrid, Valencia and Spanish defender took the top job with the Hornets following Slavisa Jokanovic's departure.
Started his managerial career with Real Madrid's youth team, while his first senior post came at Getafe in 2004.
He returned to former club Valencia the following year before going on to work with Benfica, Atlético Madrid - where he won the 2010 Europa League - Al-Ahli and Al-Ain, before rejoining Getafe in 2015.
Captain - Troy Deeney
Led from the front as his 21 goals in 42 league appearances proved a catalyst to Watford's promotion charge. Joined the club from Walsall for £500,000 in 2010, and has made over 200 league appearances for the Hornets.
Key player last season - Troy Deeney
Hard to look past the man whose picked up both the Player of the Season and Players' Player of the Season honours at the club's awards dinner.
The skipper became the first Watford player in history to score 20-plus goals in three consecutive seasons.
Stadium - Vicarage Road
Based in Watford, Hertfordshire, Vicarage Road is an all-seater stadium with a capacity of just over 21,000 following the completion of the new Sir Elton John Stand in 2014, and expansion work in 2015.
When do we play them?
The Swans visit Vicarage Road on Saturday, September 12 - the club's third away fixture of the campaign - while Watford travel to the Liberty on Saturday, January 16.

Norwich City
How did they gain promotion?
An unforgettable day at Wembley for the Canaries saw them beat Middlesbrough 2-0 in the Championship Play-Off final.
Lost just two of their last 19 games - not including the play-offs - in a run which cemented their third-place finish.
Beat derby rivals Ipswich in the Play-Off semi-final to set up a trip to Wembley, with goals from Cameron Jerome and Nathan Redmond seeing off Boro.

Manager - Alex Neal
Left Hamilton in January to take up the job at Carrow Road following Neil Adams' exit. 
Led Norwich to a 2-1 win over eventual champions Bournemouth in his first game, and ended the campaign with 17 wins from 25 games under his leadership.

Captain - Russell Martin
The Scottish international missed just one game of the Championship campaign, and his leadership qualities were vital in the club's success.
The 29-year-old made his 200th appearance for the club in November, having joined Norwich from Peterborough in 2008.

Key player last season - Bradley Johnson
The midfielder enjoyed the best goal return of his career, with scoring 15 times.
Was named Player of the Year at the club's seasonal awards night, and he will look to chip in with yet more goals as Norwich return to the top flight following their relegation in 2014.

Stadium - Carrow Road
The ground's current capacity is 27,244, the most recent works being the addition of approximately 1,000 seats in the summer of 2010. The stadium's record attendance since becoming an all-seater ground is 27,005, set during a Football League Championship match versus Ipswich Town on March 1, 2015.

When do we play them?
The Swans visit Carrow Road on Saturday, November 7 while the return match in SA1 takes place on Saturday, March 5.
