• Stoke City have lost just one of their last nine Barclays Premier League home matches (W4 D4 L1).
  • Swansea have lost six of their last nine Barclays Premier League away games (W1 D2 L6).
  • The Potters have gone five home league games without a clean sheet – this after keeping four in their previous six at the Britannia Stadium.
  • Peter Crouch has scored three goals in his two previous Premier League appearances against Swansea at the Britannia Stadium.
  • Swansea have scored just two goals in their last six Premier League away games, despite attempting 47 shots at goal in these six matches.
  • Charlie Adam has scored in three of his last four Premier League games at the Britannia Stadium.
  • Overall, Adam has either scored (3) or assisted (3) six of Stoke’s last 11 Premier League goals. He also had the shot that led to Michael Carrick’s own goal against Manchester United during this run.
  • 38% of Stoke City’s Premier League goals this season have come from outside the box (10 of 26) – a higher proportion than any other side.
  • Wilfried Bony has scored eight goals in the Premier League this season, but all eight have come in home matches for Swansea City.
  • Swansea have the opportunity to win back to back Premier League games in their first two matches under Garry Monk – something that they did not manage to do under Michael Laudrup this season.
