STATS: Swans v Leicester City

11th February 2017

It's time for some statistics as we look ahead to Sunday's Premier League fixture against Leicester City (4pm).
The Swans host the defending champions at the Liberty, and ahead of the fixture we've taken a look at the game from a statistical perspective.



SWANS
13 - Since his Premier League debut in January 2012, only Yaya Toure (16) has scored more goals from outside the box than Gylfi Sigurdsson (13).
8 - Sigurdsson has scored eight Premier League goals this season - his second best return in the competition (11 in 2015-16).
7 - Seven of Gylfi Sigurdsson's last 11 home Premier League goals for Swansea City have been scored from set pieces (four from free-kicks, three penalties).
3 - Sigurdsson has scored in his last three Premier League games - the only player to score in four consecutive PL matches for Swansea is Danny Graham in October 2011.
33 - Total times the Swans have been caught offside this term. Only Crystal Palace (32) can better that tally.
2 - Assist king Luciano Narsingh has created two goals in as many games for the Swans, with both appearances coming off the bench.



LEICESTER
8,669 - Passes completed by the defending champions this season, which is 1,589 less than the Swans this term.
24 - Only Middlesbrough (19) and Hull City (22) have scored fewer goals than the Foxes in the league so far this season.
0 - Leicester are the only Premier League side yet to score a goal in 2017 and have gone five games without one. The last top-flight side to fail to score in their opening six games of a calendar year were Stoke City in 1985.
14 - The Foxes remain without an away win in the Premier League since a 2-0 victory at Sunderland last April - they are on a run of 14 games without a win (D5, L9). Only once before in the Premier League have they had a longer winless away run, going 16 games without a win between December 2001 and October 2003.
0 - None of the last 12 meetings in all competitions between these sides has ended as a draw, with Leicester winning nine and Swansea three.
3 - Riyad Mahrez scored a hat-trick in this exact fixture last season, the first scored by a Leicester player in an away Premier League game.
