14 shots, 3 goals: The PL loanee who will be key to Swansea’s success during rest of term

Published

on

Swansea City have suffered a series of setbacks to their play-off hopes over the last month with Steve Cooper’s side having now failed to win any of their last five league matches.

The Liberty Stadium side signalled their promotion intent back in January as they completed the signings of loan trio Rhian Brewster, Conor Gallagher and Marc Guehi, but these three young talents have so far failed to inspire an upturn in form.

Swansea would have thought they were on the brink of ending their winless run against Hull on Friday night when Brewster netted late on to make it 4-3 to the visitors, but Cooper’s men were then pegged back by Tom Eaves’ late equaliser.

Brewster’s goalscoring exploits have been one of the few positives from the Swans’ recent run of matches with the Liverpool loanee having netted three times since his arrival, but only one of these strikes came during a game that Swansea won.

Here, we take a closer look at Brewster’s stats since arriving in SA1…

Is Dorus de Vries still playing?

Brewster has completed 594 minutes of action for the Swans after being a regular starter during his time at the club so far, with his substitute appearance against Hull marking the first time he has not been named in the starting line-up by Cooper.

The Liverpool loanee has produced a solid goalscoring return since his arrival by netting three times for the Swans, with the latest of these strikes coming during the closing stages of Swansea’s 4-4 draw with Hull last Friday night.

Brewster’s three goals have come as a result of him regularly looking to test the opposition’s goalkeeper, with the frontman’s 14 efforts on goal indicating how the 19-year-old is certainly not afraid to express his abilities in front of goal.

However, here is definitely some room for improvement in the striker’s overall game play if he wants to become a real threat for the Swans this term, with his 66% passing accuracy suggesting he could link up with his team-mates more effectively.

Brewster could also improve his aerial presence which has seen him win just 39% of his aerial duels for the Swans, but the fact he has suffered an average of 2.12 fouls per game indicates he has still been causing problems for Championship defences.
