Jamaal Lascelles' victor takes Magpies into top half of the table

Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley and Managing Director Lee Charnley talk during the Barclays Premier League match between Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur at St James Park on May

Swansea City welcome Newcastle United to the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, and are favourites to come out on top to go level on points with sides in the Europa League spots.

Renato Sanches was the headline act in that respect yet the 20-year-old's debut proved to be something of an anti-climax. The captain is going to be a vital figure this season for the Magpies.

Not that this defeat should be pinned on him for one moment.

The Swans have only failed to score once in 5 games at home against the Magpies. They were toothless up front, desperately short of creativity and guile in midfield and gave the ball away on far too many occasions.

Jamaal Lascelles' victor takes Magpies into top half of the table

"Between the four of us we were making a plan of communication and it worked perfectly".

For Benítez, the outcome was just what the doctor ordered.

Assistant manager Francisco de Miguel Moreno said Benitez had been in contact during the match as his team recorded successive top-flight wins for the first time since December 2015.

Newcastle, missing Rafa Benitez in the dugout due to surgery, climb to 10th in the Premier League table and Lascelles said: "The boys were excellent today". Paul Clement will have also been looking for a repeat performance after beating Crystal Palace 0-2 in their last game. Swansea's head coach sounded baffled, frustrated and annoyed by the way his team had played.

"I'm finding it hard to understand why I saw what I saw". That wasn't good enough. We got sloppy and got punished.

"I can't lie and say we haven't lost some good players". To see them set up like that I thought we'd get chances.

Tammy Abraham should have given Swansea the lead on the hour when he rounded goalkeeper Rob Elliot and seemed certain to apply the finish.

"With zonal marking, I am not a fan". He said "we are now under way".

Manchester United to bid £92m for Arsenal target Thomas Lemar
Arsenal believe they can successfully reignite their £92 million pursuit of Monaco winger Thomas Lemar in January. Arsenal are still interested and will rekindle their interest, be it in January or next summer.

There was a high sense of anticipation in Swansea before the game following the deadline-day signings of Renato Sanches and Wilfried Bony.

"Clearly you are disappointed when you lose some key players, and in Sigurdsson, Llorente and (Jack) Cork three very good players left the club. But, at the same time, we've got to wake up quickly".
