In this game, Newcastle has the third worst campaign in the Premier League, does not know what it is to win 6 games, in which accumulated 5 losses and 1 draw and it is important to underline that it is the third team that scored the least in the condition of local team, with only 9 goals scored in 11 matches.

The Swansea City has had a disastrous performance in the English championship, occupies the last position of the competition and needs to start a recovery urgently, to try to get out of the last positions. The visiting team has a weak defense, which suffered 34 goals and is the fifth worst in the national championship, but the big problem has been the attack, which scored only 13 goals and is the worst in the Premier League.
