Manager Rafael Benitez will not be in the Newcastle dugout for his side's Premier League match at Swansea on Sunday as he recovers from an operation, the club have announced.

"They're a good, well organised side but we should have done better, there's no question about that". We have all done the drills that we have done before, so we know what we need to do. Hopefully Lejeune will be fit as he was impressive at the start of the season.

"We kept going but overall it wasn't good enough".

Swansea switched at half-time by pushing Sanches into a more central position, immediately them offering a better balance and chances for Kyle Naughton and Carroll.

Victory lifted Newcastle to 10th, while Swansea slipped to 15th.

UNITED claimed back-to-back Premier League victories as Jamaal Lascelles' 76th-minute header secured a 1-0 win at Swansea City.

They nearly did go in front when Ayoze Perez forced Fabianski into saving with his outstretched leg.

As for Swansea boss Paul Clement, he has lost his top two goalscorers from last season in Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente but he brought in Wilfried Bony and Renato Sanches on transfer deadline day to surprise everyone. Jordan Ayew was ill on worldwide duty but should be fit to play with Nathan Dyer certainly missing.

The North East oufit will miss striker Aleksandar Mitrović, who is banned for three matches after elbowing Hammers attacker Manuel Lanzini in that clash. The Magpies may also be without their manager, with Rafa Benitez suffering from an infection following recent hernia surgery.

Newcastle gave absent manager Rafael Benitez the ideal pick-me-up with a 1-0 victory at Swansea.

He added, ahead of a potential debut for the youngster against Newcastle on Sunday: "I remember looking at him and instantly liking him". 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.
