Goals from Michu and Johnathan De Guzman gave Swansea a rather convincing and deserved win. Newcastle were not without their chances, but Gerhard Tremmel and his defense stayed strong. Demba Ba eventually got a goal back for Newcastle in stoppage time and made the dying minutes very interesting.
Newcastle ended the match with 32 shots, managing to get only 9 of them on target. Meanwhile Swansea had 16 shots and 7 on target. Newcastle did have 52% of the possession, but Swansea did much more with their possession and chances.
Perhaps the difference this week was the missing Papiss Cisse who was kept out of the match by his national team, Senegal. Senegal called upon the Premier League to keep him from playing after Newcastle did not allow him to leave for the midweek friendly.
