STAT PACK: Final day clash at Swansea under the spotlight

20 May 2017

Albion heading to the Liberty Stadium


HEAD-TO-HEAD

Swansea have won four of their five matches in the Premier League against Albion at the Liberty Stadium.

The away side hasn’t claimed a victory in this fixture for five games. Albion’s 2-1 win at the Liberty Stadium in March 2014 was the last time the visitors took home the points.

The first meeting between Albion and Swansea was back in October, 1927. The Baggies won 5-2 at The Hawthorns in a Division Two fixture.

The Baggies have won twice in six visits to the Liberty Stadium. 

There has never been a draw between Swansea and Albion at the Liberty Stadium.


SWANSEA CITY

Swansea City secured their safety last weekend. They recorded a 2-0 victory over already relegated Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

Their record on the final day of the Premier League season is fairly mixed. The Swans have won two, lost two and drawn the other.

Gylfi Sigurdsson needs just one goal to become the first Swansea City player to reach double figures for goals and assists in a single Premier League campaign.

The Iceland international has played in all 37 of Swansea’s Premier League games this season. Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is the only other player to have done the same.

Spanish forward Fernando Llorente is Swansea’s top scorer in the Premier League this season. He has 14 goals.


ALBION

The Baggies will be looking to secure their first league double of the season on Sunday. Tony Pulis’ side beat Swansea 3-1 at The Hawthorns back in December. Salomon Rondon stole the show with a hat-trick of headers.

The Venezuela international has scored four goals in his last two appearances against Swansea.

Albion’s final day Premier League record reads one win, six draws and three defeats.

Since the 0-0 draw with Blackburn Rovers in May 2009, both teams have scored in all of Albion’s final games of the season.

The Baggies will hope to finish the season in eighth place. They need to beat Swansea at the Liberty Stadium and hope Southampton fail to beat Stoke at home for that to happen.
