SATURDAY STATS: Swans v Manchester United

29th August 2015
Saturday means it's time for some statistics as we look ahead to this afternoon's Barclays Premier League fixture against Manchester United.
The Swans host the Red Devils aiming for a repeat of last season's heroics when they completed an historic league double over United at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea City
8: Bafe Gomis has scored eight goals in his last nine Premier League games. Clinical.
21: On average, Jonjo Shelvey has created a goalscoring opportunity for the Swans every 21 minutes so far this season. 
2: The Swans have scored at least two goals in their last three home matches in the Premier League.
9: Andre Ayew has scored in nine of his last 16 league appearances (Ligue 1 and Premier League combined), including five goals in his last eight games.
5: On average, Jack Cork has made five interceptions per game so far this season. A better average than any other player in the Premier League.

Manchester United
3: Manchester United have failed to score in three of their last five Premier League games on the road.
3: United captain Wayne Rooney is yet to get off the mark in the Premier League this season, but the England international returned to form during the week when he scored a hat-trick against Brugge in the UEFA Champions League.
6: The Red Devils are undefeated in their last six matches in the Premier League.
0: New goalkeeper Sergio Romero is one of two goalkeepers yet to concede a goal in the Premier League this season - the other being Liverpool's Simon Mignolet. Shutout.

8: The Swans won both Premier League meetings with Man United last season, ending a run of eight league games without a win against them (D2 L6).
0: Neither side have tasted defeat so far this season so something will have to give if either team wants to come away from this exciting fixture with all the points.
2.5: Swansea have seen over 2.5 goals in five of their last six matches against Man United in all competitions.
