Saturday means it's time for some statistics as we look ahead to the Swans' fixture against Arsenal at the Liberty.
With the focus on tomorrow's clash with Arsene Wenger's side, we take a look at the game via a statistical view.
Last weekend's draw at Everton was the Swans' 150th point in the Premier League.

The Swans are yet to concede a league goal in the opening 30 minutes of a game this season.
Former Arsenal keeper Lukasz Fabianski and captain Ashley Williams have played every minute in the league so far this term.
Williams needs just one more clearance to take his tally to 100 for the campaign. The Swans skipper has also completed 500 of his attempted 579 passes.
Fabianski has five clean sheets this season. Only Southampton's Fraser Forster, with six, has more.
Arsene Wenger's side currently top the division when it comes to being on the ball as they boast an average 58 per cent of possession.
