Impress your friends ahead of Sunday's game

200 NOT OUT // Last weekend's 1-1 draw with Southampton was Stoke City's 200th Premier League game. Of those, 58 have been won, 60 drawn and 82 lost.

CENTURION // If selected, Jonathan Walters will make his 100th consecutive Premier League start for the Potters, stretching back to 2nd February 2011.

DAUNTING // City haven't recorded a win or draw at Swansea in over 20 years. Two Premier League games, one Division Two match and an FA Cup clash have all ended in defeat.

SHUT-OUT // Swansea have gone 208 minutes without conceding a Premier League goal at the Liberty Stadium.

FOGHORN // Nigel Gleghorn netted in the last away win against the Swans in March 1993. Steve Foley also got his name on the scoresheet in the 2-1 victory at the Vetch Field, as the Potters marched on to become Division Two champions.

HEADS GO UP // Neither Stoke or Swansea have scored a headed goal this season, two of four teams not to have done so in the league. The Swans haven't had one conceded at home yet either.

FIVE TO GO // 195 goals have been scored by the Potters in the Premier League since promotion in 2008.

PLAYING AWAY // All of Peter Crouch's last five goals for Stoke City have come away from home - at QPR, Southampton, Tranmere, Man United and Birmingham.

WINTER WARMER // Stoke's first ever game against Swansea was on Christmas Day in 1925! It finished 1-1, as did the following day's return match at the Victoria Ground.

REMEMBER // The Potters will be wearing poppy shirts for Sunday's game.
