Paul Clement: 'Swansea City were not good enough'

Captain’s role Jamaal Lascelles scores Newcastle’s winner

Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles saved a certain goal at one end before scoring his side's victor in a 1-0 victory at Swansea City in the Premier League on Sunday.

The three points will come as a timely tonic for Benitez, who was recovering at home after being laid low by an infection following recent hernia surgery.

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.

Magpies skipper Jamaal Lascelles - who had earlier produced an exceptional goal-line clearance to deny Tammy Abraham - headed the victor from Matt Ritchie's 76th-minute corner to end Newcastle's run of 12 matches without a Premier League away win. If he gets anywhere near to the form he showed at Euro 2016 everybody in Europe will be thinking: 'How did Swansea get him?' Obviously it's because of Paul Clement, who was Carlo Ancelotti's assistant at Bayern Munich so fair play to him, it's an excellent signing.

Elliot has started each of Newcastle's three Premier League games of this season, and is expected to retain his starting berth for the trip to Swansea City on Sunday.




"Although the margin of the defeat is small I am more disappointed with our performance". "I didn't think they were great against Palace but did what they had to do".

"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".

"They're a good, well organised side but we should have done better, there's no question about that". "Swansea have been there and done it and will have too much for Newcastle".

The former Nottingham Forest trainee had made a crucial intervention in his own penalty box minutes earlier, clearing off the line after on-loan Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham had rounded Rob Elliot. "Hopefully he gets well soon and gets back with us", he said. "But, at the same time, we've got to wake up quickly".
