PREVIEW: Swansea City vs Newcastle United – 10/09/17

Swansea City vs Newcastle United 

Date: 10/09/17

K.O: 16.00pm

TV: Sky Sports Premier League

Swansea and Newcastle will be looking to continue their recent upturn in form when they meet at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday afternoon

Both sides were without a win or a goal after their first two games, but both prevailed in gameweek three; Swansea victorious over Crystal Palace and Newcastle dismantling West Ham 3-0.

Swansea welcome Deadline day arrival Renato Sanches and the returning Wilfried Bony into their squad. Both will be pushing for a starting spot, Bony looking to displace goalscoring duo Tammy Abraham and Jordan Ayew while Sanches vies for a spot in midfield with Tom Carroll, Leroy Fer and the impressive £15 million Sam Clucas.

The swans will be unchanged in defence, while Nathan Dyer, Leon Britton, Kyle Bartley and Ki Sung-Yueng miss out through injury.

Newcastle could field an unchanged side from their victory over West Ham, though substitute goalscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic will sit out the next three games after admitting a charge of violent conduct.

Joselu will continue up front, while wide-man Jacob Murphy will again be on the bench behind Christian Atsu and Matt Ritchie.

In defence, Florian Lejeune and Deandre Yedlin near fitness following layoffs and could return to the matchday squad this weekend. Any appearance will likely be from the bench however, with Rafa Benitez indicating he will stick with his previous defence of Javier Manquillo, Jamal Lascelles, Chancel Mbemba and Ciaran Clark.

Swansea have had the better of Newcastle in recent years, with the Swans winning six and losing only one of their last eight meetings, stretching back to November 2012

Prediction: Swansea City 1 Newcastle United 0
