Joselu opened the scoring with his first Newcastle goal, with Ciaran Clark and Alexander Mitrovic adding further efforts after the break.

Team news
New signings Wilfried Bony and Renato Sanches both hope to make their debuts for the club, however only the latter is set to start.

Ayew is set to continue up front with Abraham, meaning Bony will have to make do with a spot on the bench.

Jonjo Shelvey returns from a three game ban and given Newcastle’s lack of midfield options, he is set to start.

Chancel Mbemba is out for a month with an adductor injury, which leaves Rafael Benitez short of options at left-back.

Expected starting XI’s
Swansea City (3-5-2): Fabianski; Van der Hoorn, Fernandez, Mawson; Naughton, Sanches, Clucas, Carroll, Olsson; Abraham, Ayew
Newcastle United (4-3-3): Elliot; Manquillo, Lejeune, Lascelles, Clark; Merino, Shelvey, Hayden; Ritchie, Joselu, Atsu
