WBA-MAD Stat Pack: Swansea vs Albion

Last updated : 29 August 2014 By Wba-mad Editor

Swansea v West Brom

West Brom have drawn both their opening Premier League fixtures with a 2-2 draw against Sunderland and a goalless draw against Southampton last week. This match is 5/2 with 888sport.com to end as a draw

Swansea's talented midfield will have to find a way past West Brom's midfield enforcer Youssuf Mulumbu who topped the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index after the last round of games for tackles won with nine, 100% of all those attempted.

Mulumbu is ranked second overall from the first two games for tackles won with 12, behind Crystal Palace's Mile Jedinak, and also second for interceptions with 10

The one criteria in which Mulumbu does not lead his West Brom team mates is in distance covered across the opening two games, but only just. Craig Gardner has covered the most turf of the Baggies squad with 21.582km, just nine metres ahead of Mulumbu with 21.573km

Swansea are one of only two teams with a perfect record of two wins from their first two Premier League games, and will hope to continue that against West Brom.

Last season's top scorer Wilfried Bony has yet to open his account for the 2014/15 season, but Ivorian striker is still in a free shooting mood as the only player to have hit four shots on target so far this season. He is 37/10 to break the deadlock this weekend with 888sport.com.

Angel Rangel has been a consistent performer for Swansea at the back, and was ranked second in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index for passes completed in the last game week with 86.

Ashley Williams has already stamped his authority on the Swansea defence this season, making 27 clearances across the first two games, the second highest in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index.

West Brom will need to be careful of a Swansea side that has pace along the front line. Wayne Routledge is currently ranked third for distance covered at a high speed sprint, having covered 1,025 metres at full speed in the first two games.
