There will be four minutes of added time at the Liberty Stadium - that's four minutes too long for Newcastle.

Newcastle United's twitter feed tells it how it is...

77'- Former #NUFC winger Wayne Routledge is on for Swansea in place of Montero, who has led the Magpies a merry dance this afternoon.

Aleksandar Mitrovic gets a talking to from the referee Mike Jones but, to be fair to the striker, he has shown more fire in his brief cameo than most of his team-mates did in the whole match.

Aleksandar Mitrovic was booked within minutes of coming on against Southampton last week and he's back in the book again here shortly after coming on. He clashes with Swans left-back Neil Taylor before going into the book of referee Mike Jones.

Some relief for Newcastle as Swansea boss Garry Monk decides to bring the menacing Jefferson Montero off. The winger gets an even bigger ovation than Andre Ayew as he goes off and Wayne Routledge comes on.

I can't imagine the Newcastle players or fans are having too much fun at the Liberty Stadium. If there's a team you do not want to be down to 10 men against, then Swansea would be right up there. 

It's now a damage limitation exercise for the visitors.

Andre Ayew

Swansea winger Jefferson Montero - yes, him again - is the provider as the Ecuadorian crosses for Andre Ayew to head in his second goal of the season. I'm not sure there's any way back for Newcastle from this judging on events so far.

HALF-TIME

To say it's been Swansea's half would be an understatement. Bafetimbi Gomis put them ahead before Newcastle had Daryl Janmaat sent off for persistently fouling Jefferson Montero, who hit the post with a shot.

Jefferson Montero almost makes Swansea's extra man count straight away when he cuts in from the left flank and unleashes a low shot which comes back off the post.

This has been coming. Newcastle right-back Daryl Janmaat loses possession to Jefferson Montero and pulls the winger back to foul the Swansea player for a fourth time in the game. Referee Mike Jones gives Janmaat a second yellow and bring an early end to the Magpies defender's afternoon.

Newcastle offer a rare threat going forward. Gabriel Obertan runs on to a pass to the inside right of the box and sends in a low cross for striker Papiss Cisse. Swansea defender Federico Fernandez intercepts but gets caught by Cisse in the process.

Analysis

Swansea City 1-0 Newcastle United

Jonjo Shelvey
Reuters

BBC Sport's Dafydd Pritchard at the Liberty Stadium: "There are high hopes for Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey this season, with some tipping the former Liverpool man to add to his solitary England cap sometime soon. Shelvey impressed in the opening 2-2 draw at Chelsea, and he has controlled the opening 20 minutes against Newcastle. 

"It was his delightful through ball which set Bafetimbi Gomis on his way for Swansea's goal, and his crisp passing has allowed Swansea to dictate the pace of this game. The one negative? Shelvey is one of eight players sporting garish lime green boots."

In-form Gomis

7 - Bafétimbi Gomis has scored seven goals in his last eight Premier League appearances. Panther.

Good decision

Swansea City 1-0 Newcastle United

Newcastle appeared to have a decent claim for Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis's goal being offside but replays show that Daryl Janmaat was playing him onside - just.

YELLOW CARD

Swansea City 1-0 Newcastle United

Newcastle defender Daryl Janmaat clatters into Jefferson Montero again and becomes the first player in referee Mike Jones's book as he gets a yellow card.

Newcastle have their first effort in anger. Gabriel Oberton powers in a low shot which Swansea keeper Lukasz Fabianski pushes round the post for a corner.

Swansea's goal has been coming but Newcastle will feel it was offside. Jonjo Shelvey slides a pass through to Gomis and, after there is no flag from the assistant referee, Gomis rounds the keeper and slots in a shot.

Beattie on Swansea and Monk

Swansea City v Newcastle United (15:00 BST)

James Beattie, Swansea forwards coach on Football Focus earlier on:  "There are very good players here. Last week's 2-2 draw at Chelsea was a culmination of a lot of things - hard work in training Stamford Bridge and a good strategy. 

"As manager Garry Monk was growing up and progressing as a player he was always a student of the game. The way he's taken the management opportunity is second to none."
