Swans heap more misery on Magpies

Published Add your comment

Michu set Swansea on the road to a 2-1 victory at Newcastle as the misfiring Magpies slipped to a second home defeat in seven days.

Newcastle had chances - Hatem Ben Arfa was denied a spectacular first-half opener by Swans goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel - and Demba Ba, who struck in injury time, was guilty of a series of costly earlier misses.

However, the visitors were more than a match for their hosts and were good value for their win, which was secured by Michu's 58th-minute header and a second from Jonathan de Guzman three minutes from time.
