Swansea City faced off against Charlton and Stoke last week, here we take a look at the key facts and figures from the pair of Championship fixtures.

2 – Yan Dhanda now has two league goals for Swansea City in just 10 Championship appearances.

7 – Swansea City are now unbeaten in seven away league games. The last time they achieved that feat was during the 2009-10 campaign (four draws, three wins).

9 – Swansea have picked up nine points from losing positions this season, coming from behind to win against Hull, Preston and Charlton.

9 - The Swans' defensive record of just nine goals conceded remains the second best is the Championship. Only Leeds (seven) have conceded fewer.

11 – The Swans have taken 11 points from a possible 15 on their travels so far this season, one point more than they have managed at home, despite playing more games at the Liberty.

30 – George Byers’ substitute appearance against Stoke was his 30th league appearance for the Swans.

Charlton cele

39 – Victory at Charlton was Swansea City’s first at The Valley since 1980, some 39 years earlier.

41 - Andre Ayew’s goal at Charlton was his first in a league game for Swansea City in 41 months. The Ghanaian last did so when netting against Manchester City in May 2016.

That month also marked the last time he scored in consecutive league games (he previously scored against Liverpool and West Ham that month) for the club until his strike against Stoke.

66 – The games against Reading and Stoke marked the first time in five-and-a-half years (66 months) that Swansea had scored first in consecutive home league games and not gone on to win either match.

16 – The amoung of league goals scored by Steve Cooper's men this season. They also boast the second-fewest tally of goals conceded (nine).
