Vital Statistics: Stoke

10th April 2019
First team

Swansea City rounded off a week to remember at the Liberty Stadium as they added victory over Stoke to wins over Middlesbrough and Brentford.

Here we look at the key stats from the win over the Potters, including an illustration of just how good the Swans' recent home form has been.

5 - Swansea have now won five successive league games at home. The last time they achieved that was when Roberto Martinez was in charge as they won 10 in a row in SA1 between November 2007 and February 2008.

7 - Barrie McKay's lovely cross for Oli McBurnie's late header was the Scots' seventh assist of the season, putting him level with Bersant Celina for the best tally for the Swans this season. McKay is averaging an assist every 195 minutes.

7 - Incredibly the Swans have seen seven opposition players dismissed in their last 17 games. Stoke were the second team to end a game at the Liberty with nine men this season, after Bolton did the same last month.

10 - Daniel James has now been directly involved in 11 Swansea goals this season with five goals and six assists. Ten of those involvements have come at the Liberty Stadium.

19 - Oli McBurnie now has 19 goals for the season, should he add to that tally before the end of the season he will be the first Swans player since Wilfried Bony in 2014 to score 20 or more goals in a campaign.

31 - The Swans had a season-high 31 attempts on goal over the 90 minutes, working out at an average of a shot on goal every three minutes.

77 - Swansea's run of three-successive league wins came 77 games after they last achieved the feat over the final trio of fixtures of the 2016-17 campaign.

84.5 - Kristoffer Nordfeldt's pass completion rate of 84.5 per cent is the highest of any goalkeeper in the Championship this season. Against Stoke the Sweden international completed a faultless 22 from 22. No Swans player had a completion rate lower than 82 per cent against the Potters.

590 - James' wonderful opener ended Stoke's run of 590 minutes without conceding a goal.

676 - Having racked up their fifth-highest number of passes in a league game this season against Middlesbrough (655), the Swans quickly passed that mark by making 676 against the Potters.
