PAST ENCOUNTERS: Burnley v Swans
15th June 2016
The Swans head to newly-promoted Burnley on the opening weekend of the 2016-17 Premier League campaign.
There has only been two top-flight meetings between the sides, with the Swans claiming the double over the Clarets in 2014-15 after 1-0 victories.

Burnley 0 Swans 1
A bizarre own goal saw the Swans reach the 40-point mark in record time following a 1-0 win at Burnley.
After a first league double over Manchester United the previous week, the Swans did the same over Burnley as they reached the landmark two days quicker than they did in the 2012/13 campaign - and by a game less.
In a tense and tight affair, the difference proved to be an own goal by keeper Tom Heaton, who spilled into his own net following a deflection off Keiran Trippier after denying former Claret Jack Cork's powerful volley from close range.

Swans 1 Burnley 0
Nathan Dyer's strike proved the difference as Swansea City edged past Burnley at the Liberty to maintain their perfect start to the Barclays Premier League.
The winger, making his 100th Premier League appearance for the Swans, broke the deadlock midway through the first half, latching on to Gylfi Sigurdsson's fine pass being firing a shot past Tom Heaton.
The Swans survived a couple of scares in the second half as Lukas Jutkiewicz headed over from six yards and David Jones drew a superb save from Lukasz Fabianski.
But the hosts held on to claim all three points and make it two wins from two games.
