Comments:

League position: 4th Southampton had kept seven clean sheets in their preceding 11 home games in the Premier League. Had the Saints won, it would have been the first time since 1981 that had won the first five games of a calendar year in the top division. Southampton named only six of a possible seven substitutes.

Comments:

League position: 9th This was Swansea City's first win against Southampton in the Premier League. It was the Swans first win at Southampton since 14 March 1953 when they were known as Swansea Town. Jonjo Shelvey scored the first league goal of his career at St Mary's. It came in Charlton Athletic's 3-2 Championship win against Southampton on 4 April 2009. Swans manager Garry Monk spent eight years as a player at Southampton but made only 13 senior appearances. It was exactly a year to the day since an opposition player had been sent-off against the Swans in the Premier League (Andy Carroll of West Ham United).
