Numbers game: West Brom v Swans

7th April 2018
First team

​​​​​​​It’s time to check out the numbers as we look ahead to Swansea City’s Premier League trip to West Bromwich Albion this afternoon (3pm).

The Swans are hoping to move a step closer to top-flight survival as they face the division’s bottom club.


West Brom

4 – Salomon Rondon has scored each of West Brom’s last four home goals against Swansea in the Premier League, including a hat-trick of headers in this fixture last season.

8 – The Baggies have lost their last eight Premier League games, conceding 20 goals in total during that run (2.5 per game).

4 – At home, West Brom have lost their last four in the Premier League. They last lose five in a row on their own patch in the top flight in 2004.

31 – West Brom caretaker coach Darren Moore did not win any of his last 31 Premier League games as a player (all of which were with Derby in 2007-08). His last victory in the competition came in his final game for the Baggies in January 2006, a 1-0 triumph at Wigan.

23 – Moore will become the first Jamaican to take charge of a team in a Premier League game, with Jamaica becoming the 23rd nation to have had a manager in the competition.



1 – The Swans have lost just one of their last 10 Premier League games against the team starting the day bottom of the table – against Leicester in April 2015. They have won five of those matches.

196 – Wayne Routledge is just four games away from a double century of Premier League appearances for the Swans after coming off the bench at Manchester United last week. Routledge is well clear of second-placed Ashley Williams (181) in the list of players who have played most often for the Swans in the division.

31 – The Swans have 31 points on the board with seven league games of the season remaining. At the same stage last year, they were in 18th place with 28 points.

2 – The Swans have won their last two Premier League games against West Brom, and are looking to secure their first league double against them since 2011-12. Should Carlos Carvalhal’s men win, the Swans would be celebrating a first league double of this season after Wilfried Bony’s late goal against the Baggies in December.

8 – The Swans have enjoyed facing West Brom in the Premier League era, claiming eight wins and one draw in the clubs’ 13 encounters at this level.

2 – The Swans, who were beaten at Manchester United last weekend, have never suffered back-to-back Premier League defeats under Carvalhal. They were last beaten twice in a row in the top flight in December, in what proved to be Paul Clement’s last two games in charge.
