8th September 2017

As the Swans prepare for Sunday's fixture against Newcastle United, we look back at some previous encounters between the clubs at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea 2-0 Newcastle United

Premier League - Saturday, August 15, 2015

Bafe Gomis and Andre Ayew each made it two goals in as many games as the Swans secured a convincing 2-0 win over Newcastle United.

Gomis opened the scoring for the Swans inside ten minutes when he coolly rounded Tim Krul and slotted home following Jonjo Shelvey's neatly threaded through pass.

Newcastle were reduced to ten men shortly before the interval when Daryl Janmaat received two yellow cards after persistently fouling the once again impressive Jefferson Montero.

Montero and Gylfi Sigurdsson both hit the woodwork, before Ayew wrapped up the three points for Garry Monk's side with a thunderous header from Montero's inviting cross.

SWANS: Lukasz Fabianski, Kyle Naughton, Federico Fernandez, Ashley Williams (capt), Neil Taylor, Jack Cork, Jonjo Shelvey, Gylfi Sigurdsson (Leon Britton, 86), Andre Ayew (Nathan Dyer, 71), Jefferson Montero (Wayne Routledge, 76), Bafe Gomis.

Newcastle twice came from behind to earn a point in an entertaining game at the Liberty Stadium.

The Swans led through Wilfried Bony's cool finish, but the visitors levelled before half-time thanks to Papiss Cisse.

Wayne Routledge put the home side back in front with a cute flick over Tim Krul inside the box but Cisse again drew the Magpies level with a close-range finish.

Swansea 3-0 Newcastle United

Premier League - Wednesday, December 4, 2013

The Swans secured their second home win of the season against an in-form Newcastle.

Nathan Dyer put the home side ahead just before the break when he volleyed in at the far post.

Newcastle defender Mathieu Debuchy put the ball into his own net midway through the second half, while Jonjo Shelvey earned a well-deserved win with a curling strike from 25 yards out late on.

Swansea 1-0 Newcastle

Premier League - Saturday, March 2, 2013

Luke Moore's first league goal of the season gave Swansea a hard-earned win at the Liberty.

A week after lifting the Capital One Cup at Wembley, Newcastle had chances to claim all three points but came up against an inspired Michel Vorm in the home goal.

But with five minutes to play, Wayne Routledge's cross deflected off Yanga-Mbiwa into the path of Luke Moore and his shot found its way into the corner via a deflection.

SWANS: Vorm, Rangel, Monk, Williams, Davies, Britton (Moore, 76), Michu, Hernandez (Tiendalli, 88), Dyer (Ki, 60), Routledge, de Guzman.

NEWCASTLE: Elliot, Santon, Yanga-Mbiwa, Debuchy, Taylor, Cabaye, Sissoko, Gutierrez (Marveaux, 90), Tiote (Ameobi (90), Cisse, Gouffran.


Swansea 1-1 Newcastle United

Coca-Cola Championship - Saturday, February 13, 2010

Andy Carroll scored with three minutes to play as Newcastle earned a point in this tight promotion battle.

David Cotterill looked to have claimed all three points for the home side with his goal on 54 minutes, while Gorka Pintado wasted a great chance to grab a second when he mis-kicked from eight yards out.

And the Swans were punished when Carroll rose highest to head home from inside the box late on.

SWANS: de Vries, Williams, Tate, Monk, Bessone (Rangel, 7), Pratley, Orlandi, Dyer (Butler, 80), Allen, Cotterill, Kuqi (Pintado, 74).

NEWCASTLE: Harper, Coloccini, Hall, Simpson, Van Aanholt, Nolan, Guthrie, Routledge, Lovenkrands (Best, 66), Smith, Carroll.
