As the Swans prepare for the opening game of the 2017-18 Premier League campaign, we look back at some previous encounters against Saturday's opponents.

Southampton 0-1 Swansea

Premier League - Sunday, February 1, 2015

Jonjo Shelvey's stunning 25-yard strike fired the Swans to a hard-fought victory at St Mary's.

The midfielder had already hit the post before he drilled powerfully beyond Fraser Forster in the 83rd minute.

The hosts struggled to carve out clear-cut chances throughout and their frustration told when Ryan Bertrand saw red for a late lunge on Modou Barrow.

The defeat saw Saints miss the chance to displace Manchester United in third, while Swansea climbed one place to ninth.

Southampton: Forster, Clyne, Fonte, Yoshida, Bertrand, Davis, Reed (Mane, 63), Tadic, Ward-Prowse, Elia (Seager, 90), Pelle.

Swans: Fabianski, Naughton (Amat, 82), Fernandez, Williams, Taylor, Fulton, Carroll, Dyer, Shelvey, Emnes (Barrow, 16), Gomis.

Southampton 1-1 Swansea

Premier League - Saturday, November 10, 2012

Former Southampton man Nathan Dyer earned Swansea a share of the points at St Mary's as Michael Laudrup's side ended a run of three successive away defeats.

Morgan Schneiderlin put the Saints ahead ten minutes into the second half with a composed finish from Rickie Lambert's set-up.

But Swansea were level nine minutes later when Dyer pounced on Maya Yoshida's poor control to find the bottom corner.

The visitors could have won it late on but substitute Itay Shechter was denied by a last-ditch challenge from Daniel Fox.

Southampton: Gazzaniga, Clyne, Yoshida, Fonte, Shaw (Fox, 74), Schneiderlin, Ramirez, Cork, Lallana, Puncheon, Lambert.

Swans: Tremmel, Rangel, Monk, Williams, Davies, Britton (Shechter, 66), De Guzman (Agustien, 86), Ki, Routledge (Dyer, 56), Hernandez, Michu.

Southampton 2-2 Swansea

Championship - Saturday, January 31, 2009

A Marek Saganowski double saved ten-man Southampton a point against play-off contenders Swansea at St Mary's.

Ex-Saints defender Garry Monk saw his back-pass pounced upon by Saganowski, who scored in his third successive game.

The Swans equalised when Spaniard Jordi Gomez smashed home from 25 yards before Southampton were reduced to ten men after Lee Molyneux was dismissed.

Gorka Pintado looked to have given the visitors all three points before Saganowski's late leveller earned the hosts a point.

Southampton: Davis, James, Saeijs, Perry, Molyneuz, Lallana (Euell, 58), Wotton, Surman, Gillett, McGoldrick (McLaggon, 71), Saganowski (Schneiderlin, 90).

Swans: De Vries, Rangel, Monk, Williams, Tate, Britton, Gomez, Allen (Butler, 71), Orlandi, Scotland, Gower (Pintado, 61).
