Swansea City: Looking for overdue home win against Bournemouth

Swansea City are on their worst run of home form in over two years ahead of Saturday’s clash with Bournemouth at the Liberty Stadium.

Team news

Swansea have no injury worries ahead of the game but must assess the fitness of Andre Ayew, Ki Sung-yueng and Jefferson Montero following midweek international duty.

Bournemouth welcome back Marc Pugh following injury, while Glenn Murray will hope to be involved after sitting out the defeat to Newcastle before the international break.

Opta stats

  • Swansea City have lost just one of their last six league meetings with Bournemouth, winning four and drawing one.

  • Swansea have enjoyed just one victory in their last eight top-flight games (D2 L5).
  • At the Liberty Stadium, the Swans are without a win in four top-flight games (D2 L2); they last went longer without a Premier League home win in September 2013 (eight games in total).
  • Swansea are now without a clean sheet in six Premier League games, their worst run since August 2014 (seven).
  • Bournemouth have lost each of their last four Premier League games, netting just two and conceding 13 in the process.
  • Swansea have had the fewest different goalscorers of any team in the Premier League this season (three).
  • The Swans have conceded the highest proportion of goals from set pieces of any club in the top flight this season (50%).
  • Bournemouth have scored 67% of their goals in the opening 30 minutes of games, the highest proportion in the top flight.
  • Sylvan Distin is one game short of making 450 Premier League starts and thus becoming the first outfield player from outside the UK to hit that milestone and third overall (also Brad Friedel – 450 and Mark Schwarzer – 514).
