Swansea City vs Newcastle United

Swansea City and Newcastle United will both hope to make it two wins on the bounce when they clash at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday. The Swans won away at Crystal Palace last time out, while Newcastle United beat West Ham on home turf. That has given both teams the chance to climb into the top half of the table by picking up three points in Wales in front of the television cameras.

Newcastle are without Chancel Mbemba and Paul Dummett, who are injured, as well as the suspended Aleksandar Mitrovic. Rafa Benitez may also miss the game due to an infection after hernia surgery. Jonjo Shelvey, however, returns from a ban and DeAndre Yedlin and Florian Lejeune have both trained and are targeting comebacks.

It has been a decent start to the season and a decent transfer window for Swansea City. The Swans suffered a 4-0 loss at home to Manchester United but have picked up four points on their travels, and dealt with the loss of Fernando Llorente to Tottenham by signing Wilfried Bony.

With Jordan Ayew and Tammy Abraham also among their striking options, Paul Clement’s men should be able to deal with the Spaniard’s departure. In midfield, Bayern Munich starlet Renato Sanches is an intriguing, high-potential addition on loan, while Sam Clucas was a standout performer for hull city last term.
