Saturday Stats Swansea City versus Sunderland

10th May

Saturday means it's time for some statistics as we look ahead to the Swans' final fixture with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light (3pm).
With the focus on Sunday's clash with the Black Cats, we take a look at the game via a statistical view.

Gus Poyet's side are unbeaten in their last five games (W4, D1) having lost their last previous five matches.
Victory over West Brom on Wednesday night ensured the Black Cats became only the second team in Premier League history to be bottom on Christmas Day but survive.
Sunderland have scored only two fewer goals and conceded the same amount as rivals Newcastle, though they sit 11 points and five places behind the Magpies.

The Swans will be looking to claim consecutive league victories for the first time since September when they won 2-0 at West Brom and Crystal Palace.
The Swans have won five of their last nine final-day league fixtures.
This season's tally of 51 goals scored is the Swans' best return in front of goal in the Barclays Premier League.
