It didn’t take long for new boss Carlos Carvalhal to feel what Paul Clement, Bob Bradley, and Francesco Guidolin have felt: concession.
Richarlison forced Lukasz Fabianski into a save, but Carrillo was right there to deposit the rebound for 1-0 after 11 minutes.

Molla Wague looked to have a goal in his second-straight match, but his headed goal was nullified by a borderline foul in the 18.
And Richarlison cued up Andre Gray for a late 1v1 that he cranked directly at Fabianski.
That’s about when Swans started Hornets heads spinning, with Ayew tapped in from Oliver McBurnie’s assist and Narsingh passing a rebound home four minutes later.
