But his side were able to claim a vital three points with a 1-0 win against Paul Clement's team.

Jamaal Lascelles scored the only goal of the game with a thumping header in the 76th minute.

It has not been an easy few days for Rafael Benítez, who underwent surgery last week in relation to an infection following a hernia operation, but this result and performance will have done the Newcastle United manager's recovery no harm whatsoever.

"When you get back fit and are just training every day, you realise what a blessing it is when you can't do it, so when you're in the gym, you just try to work a bit harder and hopefully, you reap the rewards when you come back because you are that bit mentally tougher".

Nelson was the winning pitcher, and his 2017 season comes to an end with the pitcher having won each of his last three starts. Their confidence and resilience has been strong all season, and there's no reason to believe that will change any time soon.

Newcastle had the best chance before the break when striker Joselu's flicked header was superbly saved by Lukasz Fabianski. They had only three points on the board after seven games and had only won five games in the calendar year of 2014 while Swansea, by contrast, were enjoying an excellent start to the season under Garry Monk and were fourth in the table.

The hosts missed two clear chances to break the deadlock at the Liberty Stadium, with Alfie Mawson heading wide in the first half before Tammy Abraham saw an effort cleared off the line after rounding the goalkeeper.

But Lascelles stretched at a post and the Newcastle fans behind the goal celebrated as if they had taken the lead.

"The manager rang me this morning and told me to make sure the boys were on it".

Giggs added that Premier League style of play would suit the young player, who was part of the Euro 2016 winning squad, and thought the loan deal was a good move for Sanches, he said: "He can tackle, he can get forward and he's going to a club that play football the right way so I think he'll be a success".

"We have set a standard now".

The defeat means that Clement has now lost back-to-back home league games for the first time in his managerial career. It is down to us to bring it every week. I am not satisfied with the way we played.

Paul Clement concedes he was surprised by the manner of Swansea's defeat to Newcastle and admits he expected something much better from his team.
