Williams won three tackles, made two interceptions and scored the only goal of Monday's 1-0 win over Watford.

The captain was exceptional in what was a Man of the Match performance, keeping the Swansea back line organized and thumping home a header in the 27th minute. Williams played a vital role in the win that lifted the Swans from the drop zone, and his leadership will be key in helping the club get back on track after a terrible first half of the season. He will try to carry this momentum into Sunday's match versus Everton.

Williams has played in all 11 Premier League matches for Swansea this season and seems to be firmly within the starting XI.

The defender has five clean sheets, 13 blocks, and 108 clearances on the season. He's a vital part of the the Swans' defensive line and there's no reason to believe that will change as the season continues.

Williams signed a four-year contract extension with Swansea City on Friday, keeping him at the club until July 2018, the club's official web site reports.

There were a few different clubs interested in bringing Williams in, but he ultimately decided to keep his captain armband at Swansea. He doesn't do a lot on the attack, so his fantasy value is primarily attached to clean sheets.

Williams scored in the 94th minute of Swansea's 2-3 loss to Everton on Saturday.

Williams got his first goal of the season and now has one goal and one assist for the campaign. The Welsh defender's fantasy value primarily relies on clean sheets, which Swansea haven't recorded since early February.

Williams has gotten over the flu and will play in Wales' international friendly against Iceland on Wednesday, according to Phil Cadden of Westgate Sport.

Williams' illness wasn't expected to keep him out long, so the news that he'll play Wednesday is surely not surprising. He'll keep the captain's armband and will get a bit of a break, with his next Premier League match coming March 15 against West Brom.

Williams will not face Macedonia or Belgium after undergoing a scan on ankle ligaments that have kept him out of action for the last six Swansea matches, reports the Daily Mail.

Wales manager Chris Coleman said the scan made it clear that Williams would not be fit to play, and still faces a few weeks out of action.
