“Our fans want to see us play a brand of football that we can’t quite put together right now. We’re trying to do it and have quality.

Mehdi Abeid is available again following a suspension while Ryan Taylor could also be in the squad following his recovery from a knee injury.

Swansea meanwhile will be without Jordi Amat and Leon Britton (both knee) not to mention the suspended Angel Rangel.

The Swans are currently fifth in the table following an impressive start to the season although they are currently without a win in their last three games.

Defeats to Chelsea and Southampton have lower expectations on Garry Monk although a point away to Sunderland last weeknd steadied the ship.

Swansea have a good recent record against Newcastle having won the last four encounters between the sides and another win on Saturday could see them climb to third.
