Swansea City 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur: Five interesting stats and tables

Swansea Liberty Stadium

Swansea suffered their second defeat in a row as they lost to Tottenham Hotspur a week after going down at Old Trafford.

Here are five interesting stats and tables to digest...

1) Emmanuel Adebayor's brace means he has the same number of Premier League goals as Roberto Soldado in just over one-third of the game time, and four times as many goals from open play.
