'We did this for Rafael Benitez,' says match victor Jamaal Lascelles

'We did this for Rafael Benitez,' says match victor Jamaal Lascelles

"We are very glad because we planned the game to try and win three points and we did it", Moreno said.

Newcastle went close after 33 minutes when Ritchie's cross was met by the head of Joselu and Lukasz Fabianski sprang to his left to pull off a fantastic one-handed save.

"He rang after the game and has congratulated everybody, especially the players because they have done a massive job and we are very happy for the performance".

"I want to give my best and train well to earn the right to play so I can get back into the national team again because the players that are playing (for their clubs) are the ones that go to the national team".

The defensive insecurities prompted Clement to urge his players to squeeze higher up the field and the restriction of space nearly created a goal for the home side.

But Lascelles stretched to block and the Newcastle fans behind the goal celebrated as if they had taken the lead.

It was Swansea's first piece of possession in the opposition penalty area, coming in the 39th minute, and reflected Newcastle's superiority in the creation of first-half chances.

'We have been working very hard during the week and now it is a good moment.

'Jamaal Lascelles has the spirit of a captain, without doubt. "He said we are now under way". I think with the players they've got they will be doing well to stay out of the relegation fight. The actual game, what I saw was nothing like I expected. "They're a good, well-organised side but we should have done better, there's no question about that". "The Premier League is tough, and that is why we need to be on it every week". One-on-one with Rob Elliot, the striker rounded the Newcastle goalkeeper but looked on in despair as Lascelles, covering brilliantly, made a sliding intervention to clear the ball behind.

Despite his struggles in Bavaria, it came as a major surprise when the Portugal global moved to Swansea late in the summer transfer window, with the club's fans hugely excited to see the 20-year- old in action.
