Take a look at the key statistics behind Southampton's Premier League opener against Swansea City at St Mary's.

- Southampton have won six of their last eight meetings with Swansea in the Premier League (W6 D0 L2).

- Swansea's only win at St Mary's in the Premier League came in February 2015, with Jonjo Shelvey scoring the winner that day (D1 L3).

- The Swans have failed to score in six of their 10 Premier League contests against Southampton.

- In their last 10 Premier League seasons, Southampton have picked up an opening day win once (1-0 v West Brom in 2013, D5 L4).

- Southampton have never won an opening day home fixture in the Premier League (D5 L4).

- Swansea are unbeaten in their last three Premier League games to start the season (W2 D1).

- The Swans will play away on the opening weekend in the Premier League yet again - only one of Swansea’s previous six Premier League seasons has started at home (2013-14, lost 4-1 to Manchester United).

- Southampton will be looking to record their 1000th home league win in this match, since joining the Football League Third Division South in 1920-21 (P1881 W999 D485 L397).

- Only one team – relegated Sunderland (16) – scored fewer home Premier League goals than Southampton’s tally of 17 last season.

- Swansea loan signing Tammy Abraham – who has only two previous Premier League games to his name, both as a substitute for Chelsea – was the top scoring teenager in the Football League last season, netting 23 goals for Bristol City in the Championship.
