Numbers game: Swansea City (A)

We break down the statistics from City's 3-1 win away to Swansea City.

City responded after Andre Ayew's penalty put the Swans ahead with Nahki Wells firing the visitors level.

It then took a marvellous Kasey Palmer corner to put City ahead, before Antoine Semenyo struck a late third.

The win lifts City up to 11th in the Sky Bet Championship table and ensured the perfect start to life under Nigel Pearson.
