SOLID // Stoke City have lost just one of their last nine Barclays Premier League home matches (W4 D4 L1).

OMEN // Swansea have lost six of their last nine Barclays Premier League away games (W1 D2 L6).

CONTRAST // The Potters have gone five home league games without a clean sheet – this after keeping four in their previous six at the Britannia Stadium.

FORM // Peter Crouch has scored three goals in his two previous Premier League appearances against Swansea at the Britannia Stadium.

OFF-TARGET // Swansea have scored just two goals in their last six Premier League away games, despite attempting 47 shots at goal in these six matches.

GOALS // Charlie Adam has scored in three of his last four Premier League games at the Britannia Stadium.

TALISMAN // Overall, Adam has either scored (3) or assisted (4) seven of Stoke’s last 11 Premier League goals. 

DISTANCE // 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.

SURPRISING // Wilfried Bony has scored eight goals in the Premier League this season, but all eight have come in home matches for Swansea City.

LANDMARK // 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.
