TEAM NEWS
Newcastle will be without Daryl Janmaat who suffered a groin injury against Southampton and also broke two fingers after reportedly punching a wall.

Fabricio Coloccini is expected to miss out again, but midfielder Jack Colback returns from suspension.

Swansea midfielder Leon Britton has recovered from the back and foot injuries which ruled him out last week.

Head coach Francesco Guidolin has a full-strength squad and could name the same team which beat Chelsea.

MATCH FACTS
Head-to-head

  • Swansea are unbeaten in their four Premier League visits to St James' Park, winning the last three in a row.
  • The Swans have won six of their last seven league meetings with Newcastle, drawing the other.
Newcastle United

  • Newcastle have taken just four points from the last 30 available.
  • Their current points tally of 25 point from 32 games in their worst at this stage of a Premier League season, surpassing their previous lowest in 2008-09 (30 points) when they were relegated.
  • However, they have only lost one of their last five home matches (W2, D2).
  • They have conceded three or more goals in 10 Premier League games this season - a joint-league high with Aston Villa - and kept just one clean sheet in their last 17 league games.
  • The Magpies haven't won a match in April in any of the last three seasons - losing their last 11 in a row.
Swansea City

  • Swansea have won four of their last six league matches (D1, L1).
  • However, they have only won one of their last five away games in the division (D2, L2).
  • They have kept one clean sheet in their 16 away league games this season.
  • The Swans were one point above the relegation zone when Francesco Guidolin took charge of his first match on 24 January; they are now 13 points clear.
  • Only Harry Kane (11) and Sergio Aguero (10) have scored more Premier League goals in 2016 than Gylfi Sigurdsson's nine.

A Newcastle win would mean it's in their hands to go above Norwich with a big enough goal swing. No points and with Man City and Liverpool in the next 2 its likely to be mathematically over.
