Swansea City made it two wins in four days as they produced another excellent home performance to beat Middlesbrough.

Here we look at the key statistics from Saturday's game:

1 - The Swans have suffered just one home defeat against Middlesbrough in the last 37 years.

4 - Swansea have now made it four home league wins in a row for the first time in 13 months, having last achieved the feat under Carlos Carvalhal in March 2018. They also record back-to-back league wins for the fourth time this season, but have yet to extend such a sequence to three games.

5 - Connor Roberts' fifth goal of the season puts him third outright on the list of Swansea's topscorers this season, only Bersant Celina and Oli McBurnie have more.

7 - Celina's pair of assists against Boro took his tally for the season to seven, the most by any Swansea player during the 2018-19 campaign.

50 - Matt Grimes made his 50th appearance for the Swans almost exactly four years after making his debut in a 3-1 win over Hull on April 4, 2015.

655 - The Swans completed 655 passes against Tony Pulis' men, their fifth-highest tally in a league game this season. Only beaten by the home wins over Bolton (742) and QPR (746), the home defeat to Ipswich (724) and the defeat at West Brom (740).

1,464 - The gap between Grimes making his debut and bringing up his half-century spanned 1,464 days.

2,252 - Grimes' tally of successful passes went through the 2,250 barrier against Middlesbrough, the most of any Swansea player this season.
