Comments:

League position: 14th This defeat meant that Newcastle United had lost seven consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time. It's their longest run of league defeats since the club record run of ten losses in a row from 23 August 1977 to 15 October 1977 in League Division One during manager Richard Dinnis' ill-fated ten-month reign. The seventh defeat in that sequence was at Ipswich Town, a team managed by latter day Toon boss, Sir Bobby Robson. They had now conceded 57 goals in this Premier League season. Only next-to-bottom Queens Park Rangers (59) had conceded more. Along with West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland, they had conceded the most in home matches (26).

Comments:

League position: 8th Swansea City remained unbeaten unbeaten in six Premier League matches against Newcastle United (won five). They had yet to lose at St James' Park in the Premier League (won three and drawn one). The Swans have scored in ten of their last 12 away games in the Premier League. Siem De Jong's goal was the 200th that Swansea City had conceded in the Premier League (148th game).
