With the Swans heading to St Mary's on Sunday to face Southampton, we look at back at some previous encounters between the clubs.
Here, we bring you some classic Premier League meetings, along with a four-goal thriller in the Championship.
Southampton 0 Swans 1
Premier League - Sunday, February 1, 2015
Jonjo Shelvey's stunning 20-yard strike earned the Swans a first ever Barclays Premier League victory over Southampton.
The midfielder fired into the top corner with eight minutes to go as the Swans claimed their third away win of their league campaign.
Shelvey had earlier hit the post for the visitors, while Lukasz Fabianski had kept the Saints out in the first half to deny James Ward-Prowse and Ashley Williams twice denied sub Sadio Mane late on.
And, with minutes remaining, things got worse for Saints who ended the game with ten men after Ryan Bertrand was sent off for a lunge on substitute Modou Barrow.
This victory moved the Swans - who handed a debut to Kyle Naughton for this game - back up to ninth, with 33 points from 23 games.

Southampton 1 Swans 1
Premier League - Saturday, November 10, 2012
Nathan Dyer came off the bench to deny his former club victory as the Swans claimed a valuable point at Southampton.
After a goal-less first half, Morgan Schneiderlin opened the scoring after 64 minutes when he nodded home after Rickie Lambert headed down a cross into the box.
But just as the home crowd were sensing only a second league win of the campaign, up popped substitute Dyer.
Just 16 minutes after replacing Wayne Routledge, Dyer capitalised on a defensive mix-up as he took possession off Jose Fonte after keeper Paulo Gazzaniga's pass to the Portuguese defender, and the former Saint raced on and fired into the net via the far post.
Both sides pushed for a winner, but they had to settle for a point in the end of a tense encounter.
Southampton: Paulo Gazzaniga, Nathaniel Clyne, Maya Yoshida, Morgan Schneiderlin, Jose Fonte, Rickie Lambert, Gaston Ramirez, Jack Cork, Adam Lallana (capt), Luke Shaw (Danny Fox, 72), Jason Puncheon.

Southampton 2 Swans 2
Championship - Saturday, January 31, 2009
The Swans were denied victory by ten-man Southampton after Marek Saganowski earned the hosts a share of the spoils in an entertaining game.
The striker pounced on Garry Monk's back-pass to fire the Saints ahead after 17 minutes, but the Swans were level just past the half-hour after on-loan Spaniard Jordi Gomez smashed home from 25 yards.
Saints were reduced to ten men after Lee Molyneux was dismissed shortly into the second half, and things got even better for the Swans when sub Gorka Pintado put them ahead just four minutes after replacing Mark Gower.
But Saganowski had the final say as he made it 2-2 with 14 minutes to go as the Swans were forced to settle for a point.
