Vital Statistics: Christmas fixtures

Swansea City have had a testing run of results over the Christmas period, suffering defeats to Hull and Aston Villa before fighting back to draw with Wigan.

Here we look at the key numbers as the Swans prepare to enter 2019.

4 - Swansea's second-half revival against Wigan saw them double their tally for goals from set-pieces this season. Dan Burn's own goal and Mike van der Hoorn's strike means Swansea have now scored four set-piece goals.

Stoke, Middlesbrough and Bolton match that tally. Only Wigan - who scored from a corner and a penalty in SA1 - have scored fewer set-piece goals with three.

5 - When Wigan defender Burn put through his own net just before the hour mark he became the fifth opposition player to score an own goal for the Swans. No Championship side has benefited more from own goals this season.

8 - The draw against Wigan marked the eighth game in a row in which Swansea have conceded. Their last clean sheet came in the win at Bolton, and this is their longest run without a shut-out this season.

13 - The Swans draw with Wigan marked the first time in 13 games that Graham Potter's side had shared the spoils with an opponent. Ironically, Swansea's previous draw had also been against the Latics in October.

14 - The presence of Van der Hoorn and Wilfried Bony on the scoresheet over the Christmas period took the number of scorers for the Swans this season to 14.

Oli McBurnie, Bersant Celina, Jay Fulton, Connor Roberts, Wayne Routledge, Courtney Baker-Richardson, Yan Dhanda, Leroy Fer, Daniel James, Barrie McKay, Kyle Naughton and own goals are the others to have contributed to the Swans goals column this season.

33 - Swansea's draw against Wigan took their points tally to 33 for the season, that matches their total from last season.
