Crystal Palace -

Swansea -

Last five head-to-head meetings - Crystal Palace W1, Swansea W2, D2.

Last season, there were 12 goals across the two Premier League meetings between these two sides, with nine of those coming in a topsy-turvy encounter at the Liberty Stadium where Swansea eventually ran out 5-4 winners.

Both teams are still looking for their first goal of the season after suffering shut-outs in their first two matches, and Frank de Boer is still looking for his first point as manager of Crystal Palace.

In all competitions, Crystal Palace have only won one of the last 10 meetings between these two teams.

There have been 27 meetings before this weekend. Palace have only won five of them, with Swansea coming out on top 12 times (10 draws).

These two teams have met five times in just over two years. In that time, Swansea have had five men installed as manager (Garry Monk, Alan Curtis, Francesco Guidolin, Bob Bradley and Paul Clement). It may not be the most stable of managerial roles but Swansea have been ever-presents in the Premier League since their debut in the 2011/12 season.

This is Swansea's seventh successive top flight season, while for opponents Crystal Palace it is their fifth.

In the Premier League, there have been eight previous encounters. Palace have won just one with their being four draws and three wins to Swansea.

Without question the most memorable meeting between these two clubs will have been last season’s nine-goal thriller at the Liberty Stadium, which saw Fernando Llorente bag two goals in injury time to earn Swansea a dramatic win.
