Swansea City boss Paul Clement has praised opposite number Marco Silva and is wary of a Hornets backlash following their 6-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City.

The Swans have lost both of their home league games to date this season, to Manchester United and Newcastle United, and that is a record Clement is determined to address this weekend as he locks horns once again with the former Hull City boss.

Watford have a 100 per cent Premier League record on the road to date this season and Clement knows the Hornets will want to move on from last week's drubbing quickly.

He said: "Marco is obviously someone who clearly is a good coach, gets his team playing, gets his team well-organised and they are going to want to have a quick reaction to that [City defeat].

"That's what happens when you are a coach, when you are a player and you have had a really disappointing result, you want an immediate reaction and they are going to be coming here fighting for everything because you don't want back-to-back losses.

"You do everything you can to stop that happening."

Clement revealed he still has a decision to make over up to four positions for tomorrow's game, and that Wilfried Bony is one of those who is in his thoughts following the win at Reading.

The 28-year-old Ivory Coast international, who scored 34 goals in 70 appearances during his first spell in south Wales, signed for the club for a second time in August two-and-a-half years after leaving in a £28million move to Manchester City.

He has figured only three times for the Swans since his £12m return but started for the first time in Tuesday night's 2-0 Carabao Cup victory.

Clement said: "He's another one that I'm thinking about and I'll decide late on that one. But I was pleased with his physical output and his fitness condition is good. He's definitely in consideration for a start this weekend."
