Vital Statistics: QPR

Swansea City had a day to forget against QPR as Graham Potter's men slid to a 4-0 defeat at Loftus Road.

Here are the key stats as the Swans once again lost out on their travels.

1 - Swansea managed just one shot on target against the Rs, their lowest total since not registering a single effort on target at Birmingham in August. This came just four days after they had enjoyed a season-high 31 shots on goal in victory over Stoke.

3 - The first-half display in West London saw Swansea equal their largest half-time deficit of the season having also been 3-0 down at the interval at Sheffield Wednesday. It was the fourth time this season they have conceded three goals in one half of football.

4 - The hosts four-goal margin of victory ensured this was the Swans' heaviest defeat of the 2018-19 season. The last time they lost by a similar or greater margin was the 5-0 defeat to Manchester City in April 2018.

6 - Oli McBurnie started consecutive league games for the Swans for the first time in six weeks, having last done so in the defeat to Sheffield Wednesday and win over Bolton.

7 - The Swans have now lost their last seven away games in the Championship. Their worst run of away form since losing seven in a row under Paul Clement between September and December 2017.

8 - Eight of the last 11 league goals the Swans have conceded have come from set-piece situations. Two of QPR's goals came via that route, with Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest (2) and West Brom (3) also profiting from dead-ball deliveries.

18 -  Cameron Carter-Vickers made his 18th league start of the season against the Rs, meaning he has made more league starts for the Swans than any other club in his fledgling career. He has 25 Championship appearances when his substitute outings are added.

72 - Incredibly given the final outcome, the Swans enjoyed a staggering 72 per cent of possession at Loftus Road, and made 643 passes to QPR's 237.
