Burnley have kept clean sheets in five of their last eight top-flight matches, including successive clean sheets from their last two outings.

Four of Sam Vokes' last six Premier League goals for Burnley have come from headers.

Burnley have the lowest average possession of all the teams in the top half of the table, currently at 43.9%.

They also have the lowest pass completion rate of all the top 10 sides. Their passing accuracy is just 72.0%.

That said, what they lack on the ground they make up for in the air as they have highest average success rate in terms of aerial battles, winning an average of 23.2 per Premier League game.

Burnley require an average of 10.5 shots on goal in the Premier League before they breach the opposition’s net.

90% of Burnley’s Premier League goals have come from open play this season – nine from 10.

Swansea have won all four previous Premier League meetings with Burnley.

Swansea have only won one of their last six Premier League matches. That run of results has seen them score just three times - an average of 0.5 goals per game.

After the first 11 games of the season, Swansea have scored just seven goals (second joint lowest in the league) - an average of 0.6 goals per game.

Tammy Abraham has scored more goals (four) then the rest of the players who have scored a league goal for Swansea combined (Alfie Mawson, Jordan Ayew and Sam Clucas all on one each).

Swansea require an average of 12.6 shots on goal before finding the net in the Premier League this season.

On average, Swansea have the least attempts on goal outside the area – just three per game.

42% of Swansea’s attacks come from the right-hand side of the pitch - this is the joint highest percentage of chances on this particular flank along with Huddersfield and Everton.

The opening day of last season saw Burnley and Swansea face off at Turf Moor, Francesco Guidolin masterminded a late win thanks to Leroy Fer’s strike. Less than two months later though the Italian coach would be shown the Liberty Stadium exit door after being sacked.
