Olivier Ntcham Blackpool

Swansea City head coach Russell Martin brings Olivier Ntcham and Michael Obafemi into the starting line-up for tonight’s meeting with Watford.

The pair provided a goal apiece from the bench in the weekend win over West Brom, and they are in from the off at Vicarage Road, with Ollie Cooper and Luke Cundle dropping to the bench.

The Swans are otherwise unchanged from the win at The Hawthorns as Steven Benda continues in goal.

Nathan Wood and Ben Cabango link up with Kyle Naughton after the latter shook off the shoulder knock he picked up on Saturday.

Matty Sorinola and Ryan Manning are the wing-backs, with Jay Fulton and skipper Matt Grimes paired together in midfield.

Ntcham and Obafemi will be alongside Joel Piroe in attack for the visitors.

The hosts are unchanged from their 4-0 win at Stoke in Slaven Bilic's first game in charge.
