'Second best in lots of areas'

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Swansea City

Swansea manager Paul Clement, talking to BBC Match of the Day: "I am not very happy. The margin of the defeat was small and decided by a set play but overall we weren't at the level I expect. I was positive going into the game. Our preparation was good and the atmosphere around the team was good. We were second best in lots of areas. We pushed to the end but never really created anything. Newcastle were better than us today.

"Any system can be undone whether it is man-to-man or zonal. Both have strengths and weaknesses. It worked well for us last season. We have conceded two from corners this season so the details aren't right. We don't need to change how we defend, just go about our defending in a better way.

"It was a missed opportunity. We are a good side but we didn't execute today. At this level you have to do that. We have to move on quickly. We have a hard game at Tottenham next week and it is important we are better."

On Renato Sanches: "He has come to a new club and has new team-mates, a new language, new culture. He did things today that were good and some that weren't good. He is a quality player."

What's next?

There is still one game to come in this Premier League weekend - Huddersfield travel to West Ham on Monday night.

We shall of course be there to cover that one off. West Ham could climb off the bottom. Huddersfield could go top.

'Rafa wanted to come'

More from Newcastle assistant manager Francisco de Miguel Moreno.

The rumours were that manager Rafael Benitez wanted to attend the match via a helicopter, having had a hernia operation. Moreno told BBC Sport:

"Yeah he wanted to come and wanted to do everything he could to attend but the weather conditions were not the best. He has been active in the game and kept in touch with us throughout the game.

"All of the staff were involved and have been working very hard.

"After the game, Rafa rang us an congratulated all the team because they did a fantastic job. He said we are now under way."

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

The Swans have lost their opening two home league games of a season without scoring a goal for just the second time in their history (also 1985-86).

What happened that year? Relegation.

'I am disappointed with our performance'

Swansea manager Paul Clement, talking to Sky Sports: "Although the margin of the defeat is small I am more disappointed with our performance. I am not satisfied with the way we played. There was expectation going in to the game but we were second best in combats, duels, first and second balls, tactics, in all aspects. I take responsibility for it. It is a performance I am not proud of.

"It is collective responsibility and I am at the head of that. We had a positive week going in to it and I didn't expect it. We had good training week and the meetings were good. The actual game, what I saw was nothing like I expected.

"We had a couple of good chances. On another day we could have got something out of it. They kept going but overall it wasn't good enough.

"You have to reflect honestly whatever the result, looking at what we could have done better. I think there are a lot of things we could have done better."

'You get punished'

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Swansea City

Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski tells BBC Sport: "The most frustrating thing is to concede from a set-piece, especially in a game when we are going to try and win it. We got sloppy and got punished.

"It is obvious and clear to see we mark zonally, making two lines to protect the goal. Apart from being in the right position, you have to be aggressive and block the runs. If you don't, then you get punished.

"I don't mind zonal. We have been very successful on it since the manager took over."

'We need Rafa back!'

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Newcastle United

Francisco de Miguel Moreno

Newcastle assistant manager Francisco de Miguel Morenotells Sky Sports: "I feel very happy, very glad for the performance of the players and we were on the way. We have been working very hard during the week and now it is a good moment.

"Rafa has been quite active, speaking with one of the staff and that has worked. Everyone contributed and it was fine.

"We expected them to play with five at the back and we realised it was four but everything was as planned. We tried to control their midfielders and attack down wide.

"Jamaal Lascelles has the spirit of a captain, without doubt. He manages everything so well and involved in all situations.

"We need Rafa back as soon as possible. This week he will join us, probably on Tuesday."

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez should be back at work either on Monday or Tuesday.

'Zonal marking has come up short again'

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Ian Wright

Former Arsenal & England striker on 6-0-6

I thought Newcastle defended really well, they were unlucky with Joselu and Tammy Abraham was also unlucky for Swansea.

Zonal marking has come up short again. Jamaal Lascelles was half a body above Alfie Mawson.

'I am not a fan of zonal marking'

Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles, talking to BBC Match of the Day: "The boys were excellent today. We knew it would be a tough game. Swansea like to play football but we knew we could get at them and had a game plan.

"I was mad at myself for letting Tammy Abraham get in that position (clear through on the keeper). Fortunately, I was able to get back and slide in before he hit it.

"With zonal marking, I am not a fan. To see them set up like that I thought we'd get chances. Matt Ritchie has a great delivery. It was my job to get on the end of it.

"I have got great boys around me and great support. We are very close and it follows through on to the pitch.

"These are the teams we need to beat. They are a good side but we were the better team on the day. the Premier League is tough and that is why we need to be on it every week."

Should Matt Ritchie have been sent off for a high foot? It is a talking point that will no doubt carry on and on.

'We have set the standard now'

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Newcastle midfielder Matt Ritchie tells Sky Sports: "These are the games you have to win. The aim is to stay in the league and it is a massive three points."

On challenge with Alfie Mawson: "I had my eye on the ball (like Sadio Mane on Ederson on Saturday) but Mawson came lower than yesterday. I was delighted to see only a yellow card. I looked to the referee and I was lucky."

Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles tells Sky Sports: "They mark zonally and I prefer to go against that. It was down to Matt's delivery and he puts it on a plate each time."

On goalline clearance: "Tammy Abraham should not have been in that position, I got caught ball watching but fortunately got back to clear.

"The manager rang me this morning and told me to make sure the boys were on it. Hopefully he gets well soon and gets back with us.

"We have set a standard now. We will be hard to beat back home but if we play like this every week, we will do well. It is down to us to bring it every week."

Sam Clucas was playing very deep in midfield today but his set-piece delivery late on was really disappointing. Swansea were still very much missing the dead balls of Gylfi Sigurdsson.

'Newcastle have nicked it'

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Steve Claridge

Ex-Leicester and Portsmouth striker on BBC Radio 5 Live

It was from a deadball situation, it was a good header, but zonal marking for Swansea, I am not convinced by it.

Swansea were not convincing, they need to get some width in the squad and it looks a bit of imbalance.

Neither team seemed to have done enough to win it but one moment of quality, a good header from a corner, and Newcastle have nicked it.

FULL-TIME

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

A big win for Newcastle! Jamaal Lascelles cleared one off the line and then heads in the winner at the other end. Strong.

CLOSE!

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

That's a chance for the Swans though! Luciano Narsingh gets into the area, on the right, but his low shot is saved by Rob Elliot.

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Newcastle haven't won away in the Premier League since December 2015, at White Hart Lane of all places. So close now...

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Alfie Mawson is down and hurt after an aerial challenge with Jamaal Lascelles. Lascelles is on track to be the matchwinner.

PENALTY APPEAL

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Half a penalty appeal as a Swansea cross bounces around inside a crowded penalty area, before Leroy Fer heads over the top. Can Swansea nick it?

Newcastle fans seem undecided about Swansea.

A few minutes ago they were chanting about their dislike for the city, adding that they wanted to go home, albeit in more colourful language.

Now they're chanting "Don't take me home". Jamaal Lascelles' goal appears to have changed their outlook.

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Luciano Narsingh is the final throw of the dice for the hosts. He replaces Tom Carroll. Swansea are running out of time to take anything from the game.

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Wilfired Bony defends his front post well, a solid header out and that's a corner for Newcastle, who are ending this game strongly. Bony clears again. It's all eating up time.

YELLOW CARD

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Leroy Fer is now in the book for a strong tackle in midfield. Wherever Rafa Benitez is watching, and I presume that he is, he'll be feeling a lot better now.

Newcastle are heading into the top half as it stands.

'Mawson can't jump with him'

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Steve Claridge

Ex-Leicester and Portsmouth striker on BBC Radio 5 Live

Jamaal Lascelles got a run on Alfie Mawson, came around Leroy Fer and got a run at Mawson and Mawson is static, standing still and can't jump with him.

Lascelles gets well above Mawson and scores. You are better just marking someone instead of using zonal marking.

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

I'm sure zonal marking has its merits, but that goal again showed up its problems. Jamaal Lascelles was able to run in unchallenged to nut that header into the back of the net.

Newcastle make a change up front. It's Dwight Gayle on for Joselu.

GOAL - Swansea 0-1 Newcastle

Jamaal Lascelles

Pick that one out! There is the breakthrough and it's a thunderous header from Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles. No stopping that, though Lukasz Fabianski was almost behind his goalline there.

Matt Ritchie picks up the assist from the corner.

Swansea 0-0 Newcastle

It's the visitors having the best of it now as edge towards full-time. Christian Atsu has made a difference, though fellow sub Mo Diame is lucky to get away with a poor, high challenge on Jordan Ayew.

'Great move but a poor finish'

Swansea 0-0 Newcastle

Steve Claridge

Ex-Leicester and Portsmouth striker on BBC Radio 5 Live

A great chance for Newcastle and it is a really poor finish. He was on the angle and smashes it instead of just picking a spot. The goalkeeper spread himself well and it was a great move but a poor finish.

CLOSE!

Swansea 0-0 Newcastle

Chance for Newcastle now! They have been much more expressive in this second half as Javier Manquillo picks out Ayoze Perez breaking into the area, the angle is narrowing and he hits it low and early, but it's another solid stop with the feet by Lukasz Fabianski.

Swansea 0-0 Newcastle

A nutmeg with his first touch for Wilfried Bony, slick stuff. He seems to be playing just behind Tammy Abraham for now.

SUBSTITUTION - Bony on

Swansea 0-0 Newcastle

And here he is. Wilfried Bony is on for Renato Sanches, while Newcastle introduce Mo Diame for Isaac Hayden.

Dafydd Pritchard

BBC Sport Wales at the Liberty Stadium

Swansea's supporters can't wait to see Wilfried Bony come on for his second debut for the club.

He was a huge fans' favourite before his Β£25m move to Manchester City in 2015 and his popularity does not seem to have diminished following his deadline-day return for half that price.

The Ivorian striker is preparing to come on and the Swans' fans are chanting his name but the only sour note is his squad number. A striker wearing 2? Disgraceful.

CLOSE!

Swansea 0-0 Newcastle

A much more open game now. Newcastle bring the ball away, Matt Ritchie finds Ayoze Perez running into the area and his low cross/shot is right across goal! Just needed a touch...
