  • Abraham Fires Blanks, Sanches Struggles As Newcastle Edge Swansea

Swansea head coach Paul Clement says his side were second best in all aspects of the game in their 1-0 defeat at home to Newcastle. Maybe that was always going to be the case because of the level of expectation that accompanied the news that he had moved to the Liberty Stadium on a season-long loan deal from Bayern Munich. Paul Clement will have also been looking for a repeat performance after beating Crystal Palace 0-2 in their last game. The young striker rounded Elliot after an excellent through ball and would've expected to see his shot nestle in the back of the net, only for Lascelles to come sliding across to make a fantastic block on the line.

Magpies skipper Jamaal Lascelles - who had earlier produced an exceptional goal-line clearance to deny Tammy Abraham - headed the victor from Matt Ritchie's 76th-minute corner to end Newcastle's run of 12 matches without a Premier League away win.

Despite suffering back-to-back losses to Tottenham and Huddersfield upon returning to the Premier League at the first time of asking following relegation at the end of the 2015-16 season, a win over West Ham ensured they got back on their feet.

They nearly did go in front when Ayoze Perez forced Fabianski into saving with his outstretched leg. We got sloppy and got punished.

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

"I think we missed an opportunity there, I really do".

"If we can keep performing like that, we'll be fine". "Something is obviously not right on this in the details of how we defended and that's what we've got to get right", he said. "They're a good, well organised side but we should have done better, there's no question about that".

Sanches was the main new boy on display, although it was Newcastle debutant Jacob Murphy that had the first real chance of the game.

Swansea City: Lukasz Fabianski, Kyle Naughton, Alfie Mawson, Federico Fernandez (captain), Martin Olsson, Sam Clucas, Tom Carroll (Luciano Narsingh 86), Renato Sanches (Wilfried Bony 69), Jordan Ayew, Leroy Fer, Tammy Abraham. We are very close and it follows through on to the pitch.

"Clearly you are disappointed when you lose some key players, and in Sigurdsson, Llorente and (Jack) Cork three very good players left the club".
