Rafael Benitez to miss Swansea game after operation

  • Rafa Benitez boost as Jamaal Lascelles heads Newcastle to victory

The incident seemed to spur Swansea into life and they looked the better side just before the break with Ayew testing Elliot and Mawson narrowly missing the target from a corner.

Lascelles powered home a header from Matt Ritchie's corner as the Magpies climbed into the top half of the Premier League table.

Newcastle are looking for their first away Premier League win in 13 games, their last was in December 2015.

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. "He was there watching and hopefully he is back soon and can join us", said Lascelles.

"He has been active in the game and kept in touch with us throughout the game", he said. 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.

"The Premier League is tough and that is why we need to be on it every week".

Then came the goal where Swansea's zonal marking system was undone as Lascelles got a run on Mawson, won his header easily and powered it beyond Fabianski leaving him with no chance. We got sloppy and got punished. Apart from being in the right position, you have to be aggressive and block the runs.

Although the margin of the defeat is small, I'm more disappointed with our performance. "We have been very successful on it since the manager took over".

De Miguel said on Friday: "It will be Rafa's decision, but also he is taking into consideration our feelings, I think in this case even more because he hasn't seen the players training and Rafa normally has this feeling for the momentum of everybody".

"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". It's not one I'm very proud of and we've got to move forward quickly and turn that around.

Swansea are 15th after picking up four points from four games.

"It is collective responsibility and I am at the head of that".
