SATURDAY STATS: Swans v Bournemouth

21st November 2015

Saturday means it's time for some statistics as we look ahead to this afternoon's Barclays Premier League fixture against Bournemouth.
The Swans welcome the Cherries to the Liberty Stadium, aiming for a return to winning ways.
And ahead of kick-off today, we've taken a look at the game from a statistical perspective.

87: Swans skipper Ashley Williams has made the third highest amount of clearances in the Premier League this season (87) - only Leicester's Robert Huth (90) and Norwich's Sebastien Bassong (112) have made more.
17: Williams has also blocked the most amounts of shots in the Premier League this season (17).
3: The Swans have won three of their last four league games against Bournemouth at home.
4: The Swans are without a win in four top-flight games at the Liberty (D2 L2). Our longest run without a Premier League home win was in September 2013 (eight games in total).

4: Bournemouth have lost each of their last four Premier League games, netting just two and conceding 13 in the process.
450: Sylvain Distin is one game short of making 450 Premier League starts and thus becoming the first outfield player from outside the UK to hit that milestone and third overall (also Brad Friedel - 450 and Mark Schwarzer - 514).
67: Bournemouth have scored 67% of their goals in the opening 30 minutes of games, the highest proportion in the top flight.
