This was certainly a proverbial 'game of two halves' with Swansea looking to protect their first half lead after Dyer's well taken goal and with a mixture of luck, bad finishing and some good goalkeeping from Fabianski ended up with the 3 points.
|Shots by Minute - Swans with only 1 shot in last 40 minutes. Despite the last 20 minutes seeming pretty nervous, Burnley only had 1 shot after the 74th Minute|
In terms of pass volumes, Swansea's falls off a cliff from around the 70th minute after a period of domination of the ball either side of half time.
|Average Passing numbers per minute (Average out over the last 10 minutes at each point) - From 70th minute onwards Burnley has two thirds of possession (122 passes to Swansea's 61)|
|Ash's passing by half, mainly short and lateral in 1st half, only half the volume (and generally longer passes) in the 2nd half|
|Fabianski with only 1 short pass in the second half as Burnley look to increase pressure where in the 1st half the short ball to Rangel or long to Bony were more successful|
Update: Another way of looking at the level of pass control would be to look at % possession not just total volume which gives the chart below:
|Swansea's possession stats at rolling 10 minute intervals, barely breaking 40% in the last 20 minutes|
