Swansea City v Newcastle United Match Preview

Swansea 10/11 – Draw 5/2 – Newcastle 3/1
Odds shown are from William Hill and are subject to change

Swansea City host Newcastle United at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.
The home side opened their campaign with a highly impressive 2-2 draw at champions Chelsea. The Swans put in an accomplished display and may even feel disappointed that they did not grab three points. The Welsh side played for most of the second half against ten men following Thibaut Courtois’ sending-off.
However, a point at the home of the champions is a very good start to the campaign for Garry Monk’s side. The performance will have pleased everybody associated with the club. New high-profile signing Andre Ayew was also a major plus point in the draw, showing great composure to scored his team’s first equaliser.
The Magpies also started the new campaign with a 2-2 draw, as the Magpies took a point from a home game with Southampton. They produced a decent display under new boss Steve McClaren and the performance of new signing Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum was a major plus.
The former-PSV star took just 48 minutes to get on the scoresheet for his new team. Magpies fans will be encouraged by the display against Southampton, despite letting the lead slip with just 15 minutes remaining.

Facts And Figures

Newcastle have a terrible record against Swansea in Premier League meetings, as the Magpies have won just one of the eight meetings between the two teams.
Out of those eight games Swansea have claimed victory in five and two have resulted in draws.
The head-to-head record at the Liberty Stadium is relatively equalled, as Newcastle have one win, Swansea have one win and there has also been two draws.
The fact Newcastle have lost their last six away games in the Premier League does not bode well for a Magpies victory in this one.

Team News

Swansea are likely to remain unchanged from the team that secured an impressive draw at champions Chelsea last Saturday. The Swans have doubts over the fitness of Spanish centre-back Jordi Amat and South Korean midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung. Jack Cork may deputise for Ki, if the midfielder fails to recover in time to start the game.
Newcastle boss Steve McClaren may also go with roughly the same starting line-up that appeared in last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Southampton.
The Magpies are without French striker Emmanuel Riviere, who has a long-term injury. McClaren’s side also have doubts over the fitness of full-back Paul Dummett, midfielder Vurnon Anita and French playmaker Remy Cabella. Cheick Tiote could replace Anita in central midfield.

Possible Swansea line-up: Fabianski, Naughton, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor, Shelvey, Cork, Ayew, Sigurdsson, Montero, Gomis

Possible Newcastle United line-up: Krul, Janmaat, Mbemba, Coloccini, Haidara, Tiote, Colback, Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Obertan, Cisse

Prediction

Swansea will be buoyed by their 2-2 draw at champions Chelsea and will be looking for three points from their first home fixture of the campaign.
However, Newcastle came within 15 minutes of beating Southampton in their opening game and looked far more of a threat in attack in Steve McClaren’s first competitive game in charge.
I really cannot separate these sides and I think the result is likely to be an entertaining score draw at the Liberty Stadium.
