Newcastle have the opportunity to get back on track when they host Swansea City. After a storming start to the season which saw Alan Pardew's men sitting second in the table just over a month ago, the Toon have let things slide in recent weeks. Injuries and suspensions, coupled with a tough run of fixtures, have seen the Magpies go four games without a win, losing three of those encounters. Alan Pardew will see a home contest against Swansea as a good chance to take three points but Brendan Rodgers' outfit have acquitted themselves well on their debut Premier League campaign. Having said that, the Swans have yet to win away this term.
