Swansea have won four of the last five meetings between the sides, although Stoke were 2-0 winners at the Britannia Stadium the last time the sides faced each other.
The Swans have won on just one of their last seven visits to Stoke in all competitions.
Stoke have failed to win their last 11 Premier League matches, a club record. They have not gone 12 without a win since a club record-equalling 17-match streak in 1989.
It’s their worst season-opening run in the top flight since 1973. They failed to win any of the first eight that year but still finished fifth. The longest it has taken them to win a first top-flight match was in 1951 (12 games).
But the Potters are unbeaten in nine home league games at the Britannia Stadium. They last went 10 without defeat in the top flight in 1973.
Stoke have drawn their last four league home games. The last Premier League club to draw five home matches in a row were Manchester City in 2003-04.
Michael Owen is the joint-sixth highest scorer in Premier League history with 149 goals, level with Les Ferdinand.
Matthew Etherington is set to make his 250th Premier League appearance; Marc Wilson is poised for his 100th.
Swansea have seven points from five games this campaign, compared to five at this stage last season.
They have had two red cards in this season’s Premier League, more than any other club.
The Swans scored 10 goals in their first three league games but haven’t scored in the subsequent two.
Last season, Swansea failed to score in 15 league matches – it was the joint-highest tally of blanks (along with Aston Villa).
Swansea (like Stoke) picked up 16 away points last season. Only QPR (11) had a worse away record in the division.
Michael Laudrup’s side have failed to score in their last two league games. They haven’t gone three league matches without scoring so far in 2012.
