Carlos Carvalhal is the new man in the Swansea City hot-seat and his arrival has heralded signs of improvement in the South Wales side. Carvalhal's first match in charge ended in a 2-1 win at Watford  and they followed this with a decent enough showing in the 2-0 defeat at home to Tottenham Hotspur before drawing 0-0 with runaway Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup third round last weekend.

The Swans remain firm favourites to drop down to the Championship at the close of 2017/18, however the new boss has already made his presence felt and with a week to prepare for their next outing, we expect Swansea City to give a good account of themselves when they head to Tyneside on Saturday afternoon.

Newcastle United are odds-on favourites to collect all three points in front of their own fans and this is something of a surprise given both Swansea City's signs of improvement of late and Newcastle United's own form, the Magpies failing to register a single league win on home turf since October. Rafael Benitez's men enjoyed narrow wins away to Stoke City and West Ham United, however they remain dangerously close to the bottom three as things stand and we aren't too confident of their chances of grabbing three points this coming weekend.

Benitez will be somewhat frustrated at the lack of funds heading in his direction as the January transfer window moves ever closer, the impending sale of the club thwarting any potential spending spree, therefore the Spaniard will have little choice but to utilise what he has at his disposal. A prolific striker will be high on Benitez' wish-list given that the Magpies have only managed nine goals in eleven home matches and on this occasion, we'll be backing the Swans to throw themselves a lifeline by heading home from St James' Park with at least a point for their troubles.
