The Swans are boosted with the news that Jordan Ayew has recovered from an illness to be fit, and they also have new deadline-day signings Wilfried Bony and Renato Sanches also available for selection. Bartley, Dyer and Ki are still all out injured.

Newcastle have former Swan Jonjo Shelvey available again after a three-match ban, but Mitrovic is suspended. Dwight Gayle is expected to be fit.

Quick stats

Swansea City have only won once at home in the Premier League in the month of September - beating West Brom 3-0 in 2011.

Paul Clement is still yet to lose back to back home games as a manager.

1985 was the last time that the Swans lost their first 2 home League games of a season.

So far this season, no team has had fewer touches in the opposition`s box than the Swans (27)

Newcastle are looking for their first away Premier League win in 13 games, their last was in December 2015.

Prediction - 2-0 SWANS WIN

With the likes of Bony, Sanches and Clucas added to the squad, and getting our first win last time out at Crystal Palace, Clement`s side will be high on confidence and will fancy their chances of getting their first home win. The atmosphere should be fantastic, Newcastle could be without the influential of their manager in the dressing room, and another 2-0 win is hopefully on the cards for this one.
