STAT ATTACK: The season so far

10th October 2014

With the Barclays Premier League taking a break this weekend due to international commitments, we take a statistical look at how Swansea City have fared in the opening weeks of the 2014-15 campaign.
Garry Monk's side enjoyed a fine start to the season, winning their first three league games - including a memorable victory against Manchester United on the opening day.
The match winner that afternoon was Gylfi Sigurdsson, who returned to the Liberty Stadium for a second spell this summer from Tottenham.
Sigurdsson, who scored seven goals in 18 appearances during a loan spell in 2012, has hit the ground running since his switch from White Hart Lane.
The Icelandic international has already created 18 chances this season - just four less than Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas.
At the other end of the pitch, Swansea have kept three clean sheets in seven games, as well as another two shut outs in the Capital One Cup.
Lukasz Fabianski arrived on a free transfer to replace Michel Vorm, who joined Spurs as part of the deal that brought Gylfi Sigurdsson to the club.
The former Arsenal stopper has been in excellent form between the sticks thus far, making a string of fine saves and winning praise amongst both the fans and media.
Fabianski is currently second in the Premier League's Golden Glove list, with three clean sheets from seven matches - joint top with Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Hugo Lloris (Spurs), Fraser Forster (Southampton) and Tom Heaton (Burnley).
Meanwhile, skipper Ashley Williams has 76 clearances to his name as the former Stockport man continues to add to his growing reputation within the top-flight of English football.
Ever since the Swans won promotion to the Premier League in 2011, the club's success has been built on the philosophy of passing football that has been in place in SA1 for the best part of a decade.
The Swans have won a number of plaudits from across the globe over the last three seasons, and it looks as though their stock while continue to rise this term with Monk's side experiencing an average pass accuracy of 86% - just behind Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal.
