SATURDAY STATS: The season so far

28th March

Saturday means it's time for some stats as we look at the Swans' season so far - and which club records could be broken.
A fine campaign under Garry Monk may see the squad write a few new chapters in the history books in the remaining eight Barclays Premier League fixtures.

Monk's men currently have 43 points - one more than last season's total tally - and are just five short of creating a club record in the Premier League. The current tally to beat is 47, set by Brendan Rodgers' side in the Swans' first season in the Premier League.

With 12 wins already, the Swans need just one more to make this campaign their most successful in terms of victories. The benchmark was set again by Rodgers, with the Swans winning 12 matches in the club's debut season in the Premier League.

Clean sheets
Another record to beat is the 14 set in the 2011/12 campaign. With 11 already - which beats the previous seasons of 2012/13 (ten) and 2013/14 (eight) - the Swans could raise the bar again.


With eight games remaining, the Swans have scored 34 goals. The lowest total was 44 in the 2011/12 campaign, while the highest was last season's 54.


Under Rodgers and Michael Laudrup, the Swans conceded 51 goals in the opening two campaigns, while last season 54 goals were in the against column. This term, Monk's men have been breached just 38 times so far, meaning they will set a new record if they concede less than 13 goals in eight games.

Player stats
With 11 clean sheets, Lukasz Fabianski is only bettered by Southampton's Fraser Forster (13) - who has been ruled out for the season - along with Liverpool stopper Simon Mignolet (12). West Brom's Ben Foster also has 11 shut outs.

No-one has scored more direct free-kicks than Gylfi Sigurdsson, who has found the net twice from ten attempts.

Ashley Williams has enjoyed another impressive season, and this is backed up him featuring in three of the top-five lists. The Swans skipper has made 79 interceptions, with Southampton's Jose Fonte (86) the only player to make more.

Williams is also ranked fourth in terms of blocks. His 32 is bettered by Martin Skrtel (34), Jason Shackell (38) and Wes Morgan (41).

The Swans centre-back also ranks highly in clearances, with his 322 figure only beaten by Shackell (341).
