Newcastle goal

Newcastle United earned a second successive Premier League win as captain Jamaal Lascelles proved their match-winner in attack and defence at Swansea City.

A soporific first half was enlivened by a flurry of late chances at both ends and a failed Newcastle appeal for a penalty after Mikel Merino appeared to dive under pressure from Alfie Mawson.

Tammy Abraham was a whisker away from giving Swansea the lead but, after he rounded visiting goalkeeper Rob Elliot, his shot was superbly cleared off the line by Lascelles.
