The Swans will head to Southampton at the weekend to open a seventh Premier League campaign with Mike Jones taking charge of the fixture as the man in the middle.
It will be the 12th time that Jones has taken charge of a Swans fixture in the Premier League and the first since he was on duty for the Swans 4-0 defeat at home to Arsenal in January.
He was also in charge of the Swans fixture at St Mary's last season, where the home side won 1-0 - Jones dishing out just one card on that day, a yellow for Kyle Naughton.
In 16 previous games involving the Swans, Jones has never brandished a red card and indeed there have only been 23 yellow cards in those games.
The game will be Jones' 500th as a senior referee
His full record involving the Swans reads as below
