  • The Swans have not won any of the 16 Premier League games that they have fallen behind in this season (D6 L10).
  • No player has scored more Premier League goals in home games this season than Michu (10), although he has netted just twice in his last five games at the Liberty Stadium.
  • Only Manchester United (32) have won more points away from home in the Premier League this season than Tottenham Hotspur (26).
  • Spurs have netted 69% of their goals in the second half of Premier League matches this season; a league-high proportion.
