Paul Clement surprised by Swansea performance in loss to Newcastle

Paul Clement surprised by Swansea performance in loss to Newcastle

"Between the four of us we were making a plan of communication and it worked perfectly".

They restricted Swansea to few goalscoring opportunities and would have taken the lead earlier but for Lukasz Fabianski producing a wonderful fingertip save to keep out Joselu's header.

The match was nothing like as enjoyable for Paul Clement.

"Then there's the reality of going out and playing and for me, we were second-best all afternoon - in the combats, the duels, the first and second balls, in the tactics, in all aspects".

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. We got the overload in midfield but we never got control of the game.

The defeat means that Clement has now lost back-to-back home league games for the first time in his managerial career.

"I'm really not satisfied with the way we played". They face a Swansea side who also got their first win of the season at Crystal Palace at the end of last month.

When it comes to likely on the road victories, Swansea away must be one of the more possible/probable but would Newcastle fans vote to take a draw?

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. - Matt Ritchie has registered an assist in all three of his Premier League appearances against Swansea.

"I said it before the game: they mark zonally and ideally I prefer to go against that", Lascelles told Sky Sports. It is the second time this season that Swansea have conceded in that fashion although Clement, pointing to their excellent record when defending set-pieces last season, refused to accept that the zonal-marking system is to blame.

Six new signings came through the doors at the Liberty Stadium over the summer, but it was the arrival of Bayern Munich's Portuguese wonderkid Renato Sanches on deadline day that caught many by surprise.

"We are very happy with the performance and so is Rafa".
