Swansea City put another point on the board as they fight for Premier League survival courtesy of Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Everton.

We take a look at some of the key numbers from a game the Swans felt they should have won.


5 – There was no fifth successive home league victory for the Swans this weekend, but they are now unbeaten in five on their own patch in the top flight. The last time they managed that was in the final weeks of the 2015-16 season. Only once before, in 2011-12, have the Swans gone six home games without defeat in the Premier League.

2,970 – Alfie Mawson and Lukasz Fabianski have both played every one of the Swans’ 2,970 minutes of Premier League football this season.

9 – The Swans have now won nine points from games in which they have trailed since Carlos Carvalhal took over. They beat Watford and Arsenal having gone behind, and claimed draws against Leicester, West Brom and Everton.

4 – Tom Carroll recorded his fourth Premier League assist of the season on Saturday, which is double his tally from last season.

1 – Everton were a bogey team for decades, but the Swans have lost just one of their last eight Premier League meetings with Everton (W2 D5).

13 – The Swans have conceded 13 own goals in the Premier League since 2014-15, which is five more than any other side, after Saturday's unfortunate ricochet off Kyle Naughton.

3 – Jordan Ayew has scored in three of his last four Premier League home games.

7 – Ayew has 11 goals in total this season, with seven of those coming in the Premier League. That equals his best tally in the division, when he was at Aston Villa in 2015-16.

33 – The Swans now have 33 points on the board from 33 league games, which is five more than they had at the same stage last season. It was at this point last term, however, that Paul Clement’s embarked on a brilliant run which saw them bank 13 points from the last 15 on offer.
