​​​​​​​Swansea City boosted their hopes of securing Premier League survival with an impressive 4-1 win over West Ham United on Saturday.

Here we take a look at all the key numbers from the Swans’ most emphatic league victory since they beat the Hammers 4-1 at Upton Park back in May 2016.


4 – On-loan Leicester midfielder Andy King became only the fourth Swansea player to score on his first Premier League start for the club, joining Andre Ayew, Michu and Leroy Lita.

4 – The Swans have won four consecutive Premier League matches on home soil for this first time since May 2016. They have won seven in a row in all competitions, their best run since the club’s final season at Vetch Field.

3 – This was West Ham’s heaviest Premier League loss against a side who started the day in the relegation zone since a 3-0 reverse at Sheffield United in April 2007.

3 – Ki Sung-Yeung has had a hand in three goals in his last four league appearances (two goals, one assist), having previously gone 14 games without registering a goal or an assist.

37 – West Ham United have conceded 37 goals away from home in the Premier League so far this season, more than any other side in the competition.

14 – The Swans have scored 14 league goals in nine league matches under Carlos Carvalhal, having scored just 11 in their previous 20 Premier League matches this season before his appointment.

20 – Jordan Ayew’s successful spot-kick means the Swans have scored 20 of their 21 Premier League penalties. Saturday’s penalty was the club’s first in the top flight since December 2016 against Sunderland.

3 – Andre Ayew was involved in three of the Swans’ four goals on Saturday, having previously scored for both clubs in this fixture.
