Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew says Papiss Cisse was the difference between the two sides in today's game at the Liberty Stadium.
The £9.5m January signing struck either side of the break to give the Magpies a win and three points that sees them jump up to fifth place in the Premier League table.
Newcastle only had 32% possession in the game and few chances, but they took them as the Swans lacked a clinical edge, unlike their opposition today.
'We have a guy in red-hot form in Cisse and that was the difference between the sides. We weren't brilliant today, we were a bit flat, but he was electric.
'But his form doesn't surprise us, we see him in training every day.
'You need a bit of luck when you come into the Premier League, but he got a great first goal that has set him on the road in terms of confidence.
'He had a fantastic record in the Bundesliga with a club that were struggling, so he is no mystery. He is a player with pedigree.
'When you play Swansea you won't get 20 chances as they keep the ball so well, so the strikers have to keep their focus.
'They may get just one chance and he was focused on those two chances and did not let us down.
'His second goal, it was like a Masters golf shot.
'I thought it had gone over in mid-air but it had that bit of backspin on it. It was a terrific finish.'
