Swansea City climbed back into the play-off places with victory over Wigan Athletic. Here, we look at the key facts and figures.

1 – Rhian Brewster’s finish makes him the first player born in the 21st century to score for the Swans. He is the youngest goalscorer for the club in a league fixture since Yan Dhanda netted against Sheffield United in August 2018.

3 – Bersant Celina’s assist for Swansea’s second goal was his third of the season, only Andre Ayew (four) has more.

5 – Swansea are now unbeaten in five games at the Liberty Stadium, after recording back-to-back wins there for the first time since August.

8 – The Swans are now unbeaten in eight league meetings against the Latics.

12 – The Swans now have 12 wins to their name this season, while Andre Ayew’s goal tally has also reached a dozen.

14 – Steve Cooper’s side have picked up 14 points from games in which they have trailed this season.

23 – The average age of the Swans starting XI was just over 23 years. To put that in context, the youngest ever average age for a Swansea side is the 22-and-a-half year average of the team that faced Bristol City in April 1960.

29 – Wigan have not achieved a league victory in Swansea since a 6-1 win in 1991, some 29 years ago.

275 – Wayne Routledge made his 275th Swansea appearance, with his appearance off the bench the 49th time he has featured as a substitute in a league fixture for the club.
