Swansea are looking to improve on a run of just one home win in the Premier League since March, when Newcastle lost on their last visit to the Swans.
SWANSEA CITY (4-2-3-1): Vorm; Tiendalli, Williams, Chico, Davies; De Guzman, Shelvey; Canas, Alvaro, Hernandez; Pozuelo. Subs: Amat, Taylor, Britton, Dyer, Lamah, Routledge, Tremmel.
