This Saturday Swansea City welcome Newcastle United to the Liberty Stadium for their first home game of the new season.
Traditionally, since being in the Premier League Swansea have an excellent record against Newcastle, having taken more points off them than any other team (17). However, at the start of the season, it can be difficult to know what to expect from opposition. Particularly teams with new managers and several new faces on show – as manager Garry Monk acknowledged in this pre game interview;
“We’ve done well against Newcastle in the past but it’s a new team there now, with a new manager, and we have to be ready and focused because we’re expecting a really tough game on Saturday.”
So with this in mind, what can we expect from Newcastle this Saturday afternoon?
