Todays View From The Enemy comes as usual direct from our opponents, the Swansea official website and it makes for very interesting reading indeed. The Swans are yet another side that has been rejuvenated by a new manager with just one defeat in 4 games, while Arsenal have a deplorable away record! So here are the interesting numbers….
It is time for some statistics as we look ahead to Swansea City’s Premier League clash with Arsenal at the Liberty Stadium tonight (7.45pm).
The Swans will be looking to build on after last week’s 2-1 victory over Liverpool as Carlos Carvalhal’s side hope to climb out of the relegation zone.
7 – Swansea have won seven points in their four Premier League games under Carlos Carvalhal (W2 D1 L1), two more than they’d picked up in the 12 games before his appointment (W1 D2 L9).
3 – Since the start of 2014-15, the Swans’ victory over Liverpool was only the third time the team starting the day bottom of the table has beaten a team in the top four (W3 D4 L20). The other two occasions were Crystal Palace against Chelsea this season, and the Swans at Liverpool in 2016-17.
2 – Alfie Mawson is only the second Swansea player to score more than once in the Premier League at the Liberty Stadium this season, after Tammy Abraham (three).
93 – Lukasz Fabianski has made the most saves this season in the Premier League.
4 – The Gunners have won four of their last five Premier League away games against the Swans, losing the other in November 2014 (1-2).
6 – Arsenal have scored in all six of their away Premier League games against Swansea – only at West Brom (12) and Birmingham (7) do they have a better 100% record.
1 – Arsenal have only lost one of their last 34 Premier League games against the side starting that day bottom of the table (W27 D6), losing 3-4 at Blackburn in September 2011.
3 – The Gunners have won just three of their 12 Premier League away games this season. The last time they’d won as few on the road this far into a season was 2005-06, earning their fourth away win in their 15th game.
Watch out for our old boy Lukasz! And also our newest boy!
