Season So Far - Stats

With the Swans having a two week break between games, I've put together some stats around the Premier League performances so far to help to try and fill the gap.

The full pack is available here and contains figures around number of minutes played (only Vorm and Williams have played every single minute), Shots/Tackles/Key Passes per game etc.,

For a lot of the figures I've calculated them per 90 minutes played rather than per game as you might find elsewhere.  The reason for doing this is to be fair to players such as Wayne Routledge who has played in twenty Premier League games but only played the full 90 minutes three times.

One of the key things the figures show is how valuable Gylfi Sigurdsson can be to the team.  It's over a relatively small period (356 minutes played so far), but he is averaging 3.8 key passes per 90 minutes, this compares to 3.1 for Gower and 1.6 for Agustien who are the next highest players.

He also leads the shots figures with 4 per 90 minutes played with the next highest being Sinclair with 3 and Graham with 2.4.

Other areas of interest include Allen winning the most tackles and Rangel with by far the most touches per 90 minutes played as well as how the Swans compare to other PL teams.
