Past meetings: Swans v Burnley

8th February 2018
First team

​​​​​​​As the Swans get set to face Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday (3pm), we look back at some previous encounters between the clubs.

Here we recall past matches in the Premier League and the Championship.


Swans 3 Burnley 2

Premier League – March 14, 2017

Fernando Llorente’s towering late header gave the Swans a crucial victory in their push for Premier League survival.

The Spanish international frontman had put Paul Clement’s team ahead just 12 minutes into what turned out to be a thrilling game.

But Burnley levelled eight minutes later thanks to an extraordinary penalty decision, when the Clarets were awarded a spot-kick after their own player, Sam Vokes, handled in the Swans’ box.

Andre Gray converted, then claimed his second goal of the game just after the hour to leave the Swans staring at defeat.

But the hosts quickly responded through a fine Martin Olsson goal, then Llorente climbed high deep in stoppage time to seal a memorable win.

Swans: Lukasz Fabianski, Kyle Naughton (Jordi Amat 89), Federico Fernandez, Alfie Mawson, Martin Olsson, Jack Cork, Leroy Fer, Tom Carroll (Angel Rangel 89), Gylfi Sigurdsson, Luciano Narsingh (Jordan Ayew 73), Fernando Llorente.

Subs not used: Kristoffer Nordfeldt, Leon Britton, Wayne Routledge, Borja.


Swans 1 Burnley 0

Premier League – August 23, 2014

Nathan Dyer’s 23rd-minute goal proved the difference as Swansea City continued their impressive start to the season.

Garry Monk’s team had begun their campaign the previous weekend with a famous 2-1 win at Old Trafford.

And they followed that success up by overcoming a battling Burnley side.

Former Clarets loanee Dyer and fellow winger Wayne Routledge gave the visitors plenty of problems.

And it was Dyer who struck the game’s decisive blow when he latched on to Gylfi Sigurdsson’s pass before beating Tom Heaton.

Swans: Lukasz Fabianski, Angel Rangel, Ashley Williams, Jordi Amat, Neil Taylor, Ki Sung-Yueng, Jonjo Shelvey, Nathan Dyer (Jefferson Montero 66), Gylfi Sigurdsson, Wayne Routledge (Dwight Tiendalli 89), Wilfried Bony (Bafetimbi Gomis 64).

Subs not used: Gerhard Tremmel, Jazz Richards, Kyle Bartley, Josh Sheehan.


Swans 1 Burnley 0

Championship – August 28, 2010

Scott Sinclair’s first league goal in a Swansea City shirt proved decisive as Brendan Rodgers’s side claimed victory over Burnley.

The Swans had started the Championship season with some promise, while Sinclair had scored for the first time in Swans colours in a League Cup win at Tranmere in the week before Burnley’s visit.

The former Chelsea man struck again just eight minutes into clash with the Clarets as he capitalised on some fine work by Alan Tate.

Stephen Dobbie and Darren Pratley also had chances, while Burnley loanee Jack Cork fired over for the visitors.

There were two red cards in the second period, with Pratley and Burnley defender Tyrone Mears both picking up two yellow cards.

But the Swans held on for victory in the season which would see them win promotion to the Premier League.


Swans: Dorus de Vries, Alan Tate, Garry Monk, Ashley Williams, Neil Taylor, Darren Pratley, Mark Gower, Nathan Dyer (Andrea Orlandi 69), David Cotterill (Joe Allen 62), Scott Sinclair, Stephen Dobbie (Shefki Kuqi 78).

Subs not used: David Cornell, Albert Serran, Jazz Richards, Jordi Lopez.
