Alfie Mawson has become a rare bright spark in an otherwise boring campaign for Swansea and the England Under-21 worldwide has been taken into the hearts of the club's supporters.
Watford manager Walter Mazzarri also makes three alterations, despite the Hornets winning their last two fixtures in the top flight.
Capoue's 42nd-minute victor took Watford to the magical 40-points mark - but left Swansea two points adrift of safety with five games left to save their Premier League lives.
But a sudden drop in form, with one point from the Swans' last five games, coupled with some good result for relegation rivals' Hull City, has cast them two points adrift of the pack with just six games to go in the Premier League.
Clement has picked his moment, both with the whole squad and selected individuals, to demand far better when they travel to Vicarage Road to face Watford on Saturday.
The Swansea stopper had to be at this best moments later as Troy Deeney looked to sweep home Daryl Janmaat's cross only to see his effort tipped over by the Poland worldwide.
White House decides against releasing visitor records
But after being sued, it voluntarily began disclosing the logs in December 2009, posting records every three to four months. The Washington Post says the Obama White House released the names of "nearly 6 million lobbyists and other visitors".
Capoue caught Mawson in possession just outside the box and, although his first effort was well parried by Fabianski, the French midfielder duly rifled home the rebound to claim his sixth league goal of the season.
Swansea started the strongest and their outstanding performer of the season Gylfi Sigurdsson forced Heurelho Gomes into a fine save early on.
And despite great vocal encouragement from their travelling fans, the visitors were unable to break down their hosts and salvage a much-needed point.
"They had a hard defeat against Tottenham last week but we are expecting a big challenge, and I think every game is going to be a big challenge until the end of the season".
- 11 of Watford's Premier League goals have come from French players (Capoue, Kaboul, Niang and Doucoure), a haul only Arsenal can match this season. The Frenchman found the back of the net four times in his opening five Premier League games.
