SATURDAY STATS: Southampton v Swans

26th September 2015

Saturday means it's time for some statistics as we look ahead to this afternoon's Barclays Premier League fixture against Southampton.
The Swans travel to St. Mary's Stadium aiming for a return to winning ways following their midweek defeat to Hull City and a hard-fought draw at home to Everton last weekend.
And ahead of today's clash, we take a look at the match from a statistical perspective.

131: The Saints have fired in a league-high 131 crosses from open play this season.
25: The South-coast side have also attempted 25 shots from headers in the Premier League this season - 10 more than any other side.
14: 14 of Saints striker Graziano Pelle's 16 Premier League goals for Southampton have come at St. Mary's Stadium (88%).

35: Only Manchester City (44) and Arsenal (41) have registered more shots on target than Swansea's 35 from six Premier League outings.
