First team

Swansea City further extended their unbeaten record at the Liberty Stadium thanks to a 2-0 victory over Bolton.

Here, we look at the key stats from a dramatic afternoon in SA1.

5 - Swansea have seen five opposition players sent off against them in 2019, with all of those dismissals coming in the last 10 fixtures. Joshua Earl (Preston), Kristian Pedersen (Birmingham) and Ezri Konsa (Brentford) were the previous three to see red against the Swans.

7 - The Swans have now gone seven games unbeaten at the Liberty in all competitions. They last managed that last season during January and February under Carlos Carvalhal.

12 - Keeping Bolton at bay means Swansea have now racked up a dozen clean sheets this season.

29 - Swansea had their highest number of shots on goal in a game this season with 29. Eleven of those were on target, which is also a high mark for the season so far.

50 - Matt Grimes achieved something against Bolton that no other player had managed in the Championship this season. The midfielder successfully completed 50 passes in the final third of the field. The last player to do so in the second tier was Jack Grealish for Aston Villa against Reading last April.

62.5 - Swansea have now scored 35 of their 56 goals this season in the second half of games, working out at a percentage of 62.5 per cent for Graham Potter's side.

78 - Swansea had a whopping 78 per cent of the ball against the Trotters, their highest share of possession in any game in any competition this season.

116 - Grimes racked up a remarkable 116 completed passes in the 2-0 win, Bolton's total as a team was 136.

184 - Red cards for Craig Noone and David Wheater ensured this was the first Swansea fixture to see two men sent off since the FA Cup defeat to Blackburn in January 2015, when Gylfi SIgurdsson and Kyle Bartley were dismissed. That was 184 games ago.
