It’s time for some statistics as we look ahead to the Swans’ Premier League clash with Leicester City at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon (3pm).

The Swans will be looking to build on last weekend's victory over Huddersfield Town and claim back-to-back wins on home soil.

Ahead of the game, we’ve taken a look at the game from a statistical perspective.

 

Swansea

1 - In last week's 2-0 win over Huddersfield, Tom Carroll registered his first Premier League assist in 19 games - since March (v Burnley).
