Two changes as Murphy makes first Premier League start for Magpies

In come Jesus Gamez and Jacob Murphy, both for their first Premier League starts for the Magpies, with Christian Atsu and the injured Chancel Mbemba dropping out.

The Euro 2016 victor is, however, still only 20 years of age and Giggs is confident a player he considers to be "a gem" will get his career back on track after making a shock switch to the Liberty Stadium. It is the second time this season that Swansea have conceded in that fashion although Clement, pointing to their excellent record when defending set-pieces last season, refused to accept that the zonal-marking system is to blame. I take responsibility for it.

They were fortunate to finish with 11 men after Matt Ritchie escaped a red card for the sort of high foot just after halftime on Alfie Mawson which saw Sadio Mane sent off for Liverpool at Manchester City on Saturday.

"I have got great boys around me and great support".

"We were very balanced between defence and attack and we are very pleased with the team".

"We have all been in constant contact with Rafa as always and while he is very keen to be back on the training pitch, he is in good spirits".

"The Premier League is tough and that is why we need to be on it every week".

Since 2014, IS has held swaths of Deir al-Zoir province, and about 60 percent of the provincial capital. The region has some of Syria's largest oil fields, whose revenue is vital to the state's dried coffers.

However, the 20-year-old failed to make much of an impression as his occasional show of flair was undermined by wayward passing, with the stats showing he was disposed 23 times in the match.

He said: "Although the margin of the defeat is small I am more disappointed with our performance".

The Republic of Ireland worldwide said: "We don't know at this stage whether he will be there or not".

"We made too many mistakes, we gave the ball away too often".

"There was expectation going in to the game but we were second best in combats, duels, first and second balls, tactics, in all aspects. It is a performance I am not proud of", he told Sky Sports News.

"It's collective responsibility and I'm at the head of that".

Swansea signed seven players in the transfer window while 10 left the club, among them Icelandic playmaker Sigurdsson - who was involved in 53 per cent of their goals last season - and 15-goal top scorer Llorente.
