The two clubs have met each other 10 times in the Premier League with their being seven wins for Swansea, two wins for Newcastle and just the one draw.
That draw came in their first ever Premier League meeting, a 0-0 stalemate at St James’ Park back in December 2011.

These wins would also provide both clubs with their first goals of the season.

MOST MEMORABLE MEETING
The two clubs played out an entertaining 2-2 draw back in October 2014. Papiss Cisse's two goals for Newcastle would make sure the travelling Magpies would go home with a share of the points.
