The key stats ahead of Swansea's clash with Tottenham

Ahead of Swansea's Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur, we bring you all the best Opta Stats.

Swansea will come into this game with optimism as they look to bounce back from last weekend's defeat at the hands of West Ham United. Garry Monk's side occupy eighth place, but a win here could see them move to seventh. 

Tottenham Hotspur, meanwhile, sit in 10th, two places and just one point behind their hosts for the weekend. The visitors are without a win in two games, having drawn with Crystal Palace, prior to a defeat against Chelsea.

Here at the top five statistics ahead of Sunday's encounter: 

1 - Swansea City have only lost once at home this season, 1-0 against Southampton when Wilfried Bony was sent off in the first half. The south Wales outfit have only conceded more than 1 goal in one home game this season, in the 2-2 draw against Newcastle United.

2 -  Nonetheless, Tottenham have never lost to Swansea on the six occasions they have met in the Premier League, winning five of them. While, the Lilywhites have won more points away than they have at home this season.

3 - Ivorian striker Wilfried Bony has netted seven times in his last nine Premier League appearances; he is the danger-man for the Swans in this clash. He is also the calendar year’s highest goal scorer in the English top flight, having notched 19 times in 2014.
