In stark contrast to the Hornets, Swansea are one of the form teams in the division, putting together a five-match unbeaten run in all competitions.
However, a month has passed without the Hornets recording a win - a run of five matches in all competitions - and September is likely to be an important month for Quique Flores.
The Spaniard has assembled an excellent squad, but football is a results business and he needs to get his first victory on the board sooner rather than later or his new side may find themselves struggling to remain above water at the bottom of the table.
Star striker and club captain Troy Deeney also needs a goal. The 27-year-old has been praised for his leadership as a skipper and in attack, but he needs to weigh in with a direct contribution in the final third to help a team that are struggling to find the back of the net.
Watford's defence deserve plenty of credit, with the only goals to be conceded in the last three games coming against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, but focus is understandably at the other end of the pitch, with the club going 367 minutes without a goal in all competitions.

Despite some shrewd business in the summer, Swansea are still only regarded as a team who can realistically hope for a top-eight finish at best, but so far, they have suggested that they have loftier ambitions.
It is still early days, but with an unbeaten record still intact and four points being registered in games against Chelsea and Manchester United, boss Garry Monk has every reason to be optimistic for the rest of the year.
Forward Bafetimbi Gomis has been a revelation this season, with goals coming in each of his four appearances, while Andre Ayew is proving to be one the signings of the summer after joining from Marseille.
Consistency will ultimately be the key, but if they can keep their key players fit, Swansea are a match for most teams in the top flight, which is backed up by the club gaining 64 points from their last 42 games in the Premier League.
However, the Welsh club will have to cope with expectations being raised in light of their impressive start, and it is games such as the one at Vicarage Road where anything other than maximum points would be considered a disappointment.

Swansea boss Monk will be able to recall winger Jefferson Montero for the trip to Watford.
The Ecuadorian international missed out against Manchester United with a hamstring problem, but Monk has revealed that his withdrawal was precautionary and he will be involved on Saturday afternoon.
Ibarbo is still awaiting international clearance after his loan move from Roma, while Flores has revealed that Oulare, who has joined from Club Brugge, is not fully fit.
However, midfielder Adlene Guedioura could feature after signing from Crystal Palace.
Watford possible starting lineup:
Gomes; Nyom, Prodl, Cathcart, Holebas; Behrami, Capoue; Jurado, Ighalo, Abdi; Deeney
Swansea City possible starting lineup:
Fabianski; Naughton, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor; Cork, Shelvey, Sigurdsson, Ayew, Montero; Gomis

We say: Watford 0-2 Swansea City
Given that Watford are yet to concede at Vicarage Road this season, it is difficult to back against them picking up a result against Swansea with any degree of certainty, but their Welsh opponents are flying right now and if they can continue the form that they produced before the international break, they should possess enough quality to run out comfortable winners on Saturday afternoon.
