Following Swansea City’s dramatic final-day victory over West Bromwich Albion, we take a look at some of the key facts and figures from the meeting with the Baggies.

2 – Joel Piroe’s winner was just Swansea’s second goal direct from a free-kick this season (Jay Fulton v Oxford United was the other). It was the first Championship goal the Swans had scored direct from a free-kick since Conor Hourihane’s effort against Huddersfield Town in February 2021.

4 – Luke Cundle has four goal involvements from his final four appearances of the season, netting two goals and setting up a couple more.

5 – Swansea City are unbeaten in their last five meetings with West Brom, winning four in a row.

9 – Swansea City ended the season unbeaten in nine games, the second time they have strung together such a sequence under Russell Martin.

10 – Ryan Manning’s assist for Olivier Ntcham’s equaliser took the Irishman into double figures for assists over the 2022-23 campaign.

17 – Swansea City have scored 17 goals in the last 15 minutes of games this season, no Championship team has scored more.
