Stats: Swansea better than Manchester City since they sold Wilfried Bony

Swansea City have accumulated more points in the Premier League than reigning champions Manchester City since they sold them star striker Wilfried Bony.

Man City signed Bony in the January transfer window for a fee of around £25 million in the hope that the Ivorian would help fire them to another Premier League title but Manuel Pellegrini‘s side have only won four out of 11 games since his arrival (D2, L5).

Those four wins and two draws have earned City 14 points, while Swansea have won five, drawn two and lost four of their 11 games since Bony left giving them a total of 17 points in that time.

Bony has only appeared in five league games for Man City, scoring just once so far in a 3-0 win against West Brom and his old club Swansea have fared better than his new club.

The man who has taken over from Bony’s mantle at Swansea is Bafetimbi Gomis – the Frenchman has notched four goals in nine games since Bony left.

The stats show that Swansea have also had a better win percentage and points-per-game ratio since Bony headed to Manchester proving that their is definitely life in the Welsh side following his exit.

Garry Monk will certainly be delighted with how his team have coped since suffering the blow of losing such an integral part of their squad and Swansea equalled their best ever points tally in the Premier League with a 1-1 draw against Everton at the weekend.

The Swans are currently in eight position on 47 points and one more to that tally would see them officially mark their best ever season in the club’s history in terms of points accumulated – a remarkable effort for a team plying their trade in League Two just ten years ago.

Should Wilfried Bony have left Swansea City?
