SATURDAY STATS: Watford v Swans

12th September

Saturday means it's time for some statistics as we look ahead to this afternoon's Barclays Premier League fixture against Watford.
The Swans travel to Vicarage Road aiming pick up from where they left off prior to the international break.
Last time out, Garry Monk's side secured their third successive victory over Manchester United with a 2-1 win at the Liberty Stadium, and they'll be hoping for more of the same this afternoon.
Ahead of today's clash with Premier League new boys Watford, we've crunched the numbers to take a look at the encounter from a statistical perspective.

91: Watford players have racked up 91 interceptions so far this season, more than any other side.
0: Watford have failed to have a shot on target in their last two Premier League games.
3: Watford have been unable to score in their last three matches in the Premier League.
2.5: Hornets new boy Jurado is statistically the most creative player for today's hosts, averaging 2.5 key passes per game from the opening four league fixtures.

5: Bafe Gomis hopes to make Swansea City history this weekend, with one goal against Watford on Saturday enough to see him become the first player to score in each of the club's opening five league games.
4: Gomis' strike against Manchester United last time out saw him become the first Swan since Harry Deacon in 1923 to find the net in the first four matches of the league campaign.
14: Only Santi Cazorla (16) has created more goal scoring chances than Jonjo Shelvey (14) this season.
13: The Swans took a total of 13 points from a possible 18 against Premier League new boys last season. That's an impressive average of 2.16 points per game.
1: The Swans have kept one clean sheet in their last six top-tier games on the road.
