We had good training week, all our meetings were very good.

Here is everything you need to know about the clash at the Liberty Stadium. Hopefully Lejeune will be fit as he was impressive at the start of the season.

"He has been active in the game and kept in touch with us throughout the game. Swansea have been there and done it and will have too much for Newcastle".

A win over Swansea could further help boost confidence, but a loss would only complicate matters for Newcastle and its management.

Both sides started the new season slowly.

Newcastle United bagged three points for the second straight Premier League encounter, as they defeated Swansea City 1-0 on Sunday evening.

"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".

"Swansea gave a debut to new loan signing from Bayern Munich Renato Sanches but the Portuguese midfielder faded after a bright opening and was eventually replaced by Wilfried Bony who returned to Swansea from Manchester City in the transfer window".

Both those players are available to make their debuts on Sunday, while Jordan Ayew is also fit, despite missing worldwide duty with Ghana due to a stomach problem.

Aleksandar Mitrovic will definitely miss the trip to South Wales, as he begins a three-game ban, however Jonjo Shelvey is set to return following a similar suspension. The Magpies may also be without their manager, with Rafa Benitez suffering from an infection following recent hernia surgery.

"I told them Newcastle will do well to achieve that". That means manager Clement will have to decide if he opt for the experience of Bony, or whether will stick with his younger in-form alternative in Abraham. Magpies fans will clock up 716 miles this weekend in one of the longest away journeys in the top flight, but they could be facing a disappointing journey home.
