Stat Attack: Swansea City Away

9 February 2016


Palace stopped the rot with a draw at Swansea City on Saturday afternoon, picking up their first Premier League point of 2016 during hammering rain at the Liberty Stadium.

A second half goal from Scott Dann pulled Palace level after an early Gylfi Sigurdsson free-kick had given the Swans the lead, earning the Eagles a hard-fought point going in to games against Watford, West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland, in the league.

Below we've taken a look at some of the most interesting statistics following the weekend's result:
  • Jordon Mutch covered a greater distance than any other Palace player on Saturday, clocking up 11.13km. However, Swansea's Jack Cork covered a match-high 12.14km.
  • He also completed more passes in the opposition's half (25) than any other Palace player. 
  • Wilfried Zaha's top speed of 34.47km/h was the highest recorded during the game!
  • JamesMcArthur has covered the furthest distance (245.62km) of any Palace player in the top flight this season, Puncheon is second (242.77km).
  • Jason Puncheon has created more chances (44) than any other Palace player in the league this season, Cabaye and Zaha are joint-second (31). He also has the most assists (three) and has the second highest number of passes completed (751) too.
  • Left-back Pape Souare's 52 sprints was the most of any Palace player against the Swans.
  • Zaha created the joint-most chances (four) during the game, level with goalscorer Sigurdsson. Wilf also completed the second highest number of take ons (six) in the Premier League last weekend and has successfully completed the most throughout the season (86).
  • Palace goalscorer Scott Dann has made a league high 35 clearances in the top flight this term and won the second highest number of aerial duels (six) in the Premier League last weekend.
