SATURDAY STATS: Newcastle v Swans

16th April 2016

Saturday means it's time for some statistics as we look ahead to this afternoon's Barclays Premier League fixture against Newcastle United. 
The Swans travel to St. James' Park aiming to extend their unbeaten run to four games, following victories over Aston Villa and Chelsea, either side of a hard-earned 2-2 draw at Stoke.
And ahead of tomorrow's kick-off we've taken a look at the game from a statistical perspective.

25: Newcastle's 25 point tally after 32 games is their worst at this stage of a Premier League season; surpassing their previous lowest in 2008-09 (30 points) when they were relegated.
10: The Magpies have conceded three or more goals in ten Premier League games this season, a joint-league high with Aston Villa.
1: Newcastle have won just one point in their last seven Premier League matches (W0 D1 L6).

9: Gylfi Sigurdsson has scored in nine of his last 14 Premier League appearances for Swansea (nine goals).
9: The Icelandic midfielder's tally of nine Premier League goals in 2016 is only bettered by Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane (11 goals each).
40: The Swans reached the much-coveted 40-point mark in the Premier League this season following their 1-0 victory over Chelsea last weekend.
42: Only Crystal Palace's Scott Dann (43) has made more blocks than Swans skipper Ashley Williams this season.

1: Newcastle have won just one of their nine Premier League games against the Swans (W1 D2 L6).
0: Swansea have lost none of their last four Premier League trips to St James' Park, including winning the last three in a row.
25: On Christmas Day, Newcastle United (17 points) were two points ahead of Swansea City (15) after 17 games - since then, the Magpies have picked up just eight points in 15 games, while Swansea have won 25 points in 16 games.
