SATURDAY STATS: Swans v West Brom

15th March 2014

Saturday means it's time for some statistics as we look ahead to the Swans' fixture with West Brom at the Liberty.
With the focus on today's clash with the Baggies, we take a look at the game via a statistical view.

The Swans are searching for only a fifth victory in their last 19 home Barclays Premier League. Those wins have come against Sunderland, Newcastle, Fulham and Cardiff City.
The Swans finish games strongly, with 11 of their 37 goals coming in the last 15 minutes. Meanwhile, the most they have conceded (eight goals) is during the 61-75 minutes.
Similarly, they end the first half strongly too as the average time of the team's first goal is 45:16.
A staggering seven own goals have benefited the Swans this season, with only one (Chico Flores v Tottenham Hotspur) against.
Ashley Williams is just one short of making 200 defensive clearances this season.

The Baggies are without a win in their last ten Barclays Premier League matches, having drawn four and lost six.
Pepe Mel's side are yet to receive a red card this season, though they have been shown 56 yellow cards.

Like the Swans, the Baggies tend to finish games strongly with ten of their 31 goals in the final quarter of an hour.
