Lascelles victor boosts Benitez and Newcastle

Lascelles victor boosts Benitez and Newcastle Lascelles victor boosts Benitez and Newcastle

After opening with a 0-0 draw at Southampton, Swansea were blown away by Manchester United in their first home game - but they picked some much needed confidence with a 4-1 League Cup win at MK Dons with their first Premier League win following a few days later away at Crystal Palace.

Benitez missed the game - won by skipper Jamaal Lascelles' 76th-minute header - as he was recovering at home after being laid low by an infection following recent hernia surgery.

Newcastle make the long trip to South Wales on Sunday afternoon with Rafa Benitez's men looking to build on their first Premier League victory of the season against West Ham before the global break.

"When you get back fit and are just training every day, you realise what a blessing it is when you can't do it, so when you're in the gym, you just try to work a bit harder and hopefully, you reap the rewards when you come back because you are that bit mentally tougher". Swansea now have one more point than Newcastle, having won four points from the opening three games.

The visitors had created the best of the opportunities up to that point as only Lukasz Fabianski's stunning first-half denial of Joselu prevented it from taking an earlier lead.

Mawson met Tom Carroll's resulting corner but sent his header a yard wide of the far post.

Paul Clement introduced returning striker Wilfried Bony in his place but the fan favourite could do little about Lascelles' thumping victor, the captain getting above Alfie Mawson to leave Fabianski with no chance.

"The manager rang me this morning and told me to make sure the boys were on it". "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.

"We have set a standard now".

"I said to the players in the dressing room, there's all the make-believe stuff, what's written on the paper and how we think it's going to go, and then there's the reality of what actually happens in the game". It is down to us to bring it every week.

Instead Francisco de Míguel Moreno will take charge of first-team duties against Paul Clement's side.
