As Swansea City prepare to return to Championship action against Huddersfield on Saturday, we take a look at the key facts and figures from the season so far.

1 – The Swans have conceded just one league goal to date. That is the best such tally in the Championship, only Reading and Watford can match their goals against record.

3 – No Swansea City player has had more direct goal involvements than Jake Bidwell, who has two assists and a goal from his four appearances so far this season.

5 – The Swans are one of just five unbeaten sides in the Championship. The others are Reading, Bristol City, Bournemouth and Birmingham.

19 – Andre Ayew has scored 19 goals in all competitions since the start of last season. With those goal coming across 51 appearances.

27 – Swansea City have picked up 27 Championship points since the post-lockdown resumption of football, from a potential total of 39, winning eight and losing just one of their 13 games.

85 – Matt Grimes has played every minute of Swansea City’s last 85 Championship fixtures, last failing to complete a game in October 2018.

238 – By the time the Swans travel to Coventry next week, it will be 238 days since they last lost an away game. That came at Fulham on February 26 of this year, nearly eight months ago.

483 – The Swans are also averaging 483 passes per game, and have only completed fewer passes than an opponent on one occasion (against Preston).
