Cardiff v Swansea City - the key stats
SWANSEA City will have to find a way past one of the Premier League’s in-form goalkeepers on Sunday afternoon.
In a stat which proves the value of David Marshall to his Cardiff side, the EA Sports Player Performance Index shows he has made more saves than any other keeper in the league so far this season with 44.
Steven Caulker could be doing little more to help his side as he ranks first on the index for total blocks with 18.
Nathan Dyer isn’t necessarily known for his defensive work, being more noted for his work with the ball at his feet. However, the Swans midfielder still has a sterling defensive record, successfully completing 73.3 per cent of his 15 attempted challenges.
Chico Flores remains Swansea’s most enthusiastic defender though, racking up 22 attempted challenges this season, completing 72.7 per cent of them.
