Jamaal Lascelles heads Newcastle past Swansea with Benítez convalescing

In terms of goals scored in home Premier League games against Newcastle United, the fixture has averaged 2.4 goals per game, slightly below our overall Premier League average of 2.65.

The Swans, who had a horrid opening to their campaign after two crushing defeats, have bounced back well and are on the run of two successive victories after beating MK Dons in the Capital One Cup and Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

"Although the margin of the defeat is small I am more disappointed with our performance". "I said to the players, there is no crisis", Clement said. It's a good team, a great group that's got us promoted.

Manager Rafael Benitez will not be in the Newcastle dugout for his side's Premier League match at Swansea on Sunday as he recovers from an operation, the club have announced. We had a positive week going in to it and I didn't expect it.

"That's not good enough and I take responsibility for that performance".

Newcastle's second win lifted them into mid-table, providing Benitez with hope they can avoid relegation despite their lack of top-class signings since last season's promotion.

However, the 20-year-old failed to make much of an impression as his occasional show of flair was undermined by wayward passing, with the stats showing he was disposed 23 times in the match. We got the overload in midfield but we never got control of the game.

"The team will be led by Rafa's coaching staff, who will be in contact with the manager throughout matchday".

"We made too many mistakes, we gave the ball away too often".

After securing their first win of the campaign with a 3-0 home victory over West Ham before September's worldwide break, the 31-year-old now believes that Newcastle can get their season off properly - starting with another possible three points against the Swans.

"And hopefully, hopefully if Rafa stays then they can go on from there. Some of the basics we never got right, just that competitiveness".
