Clement: Sanches Must Earn Swansea Place

Clement: Sanches Must Earn Swansea Place

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

He had overseen a first win of the season in the previous game before the global break - a handsome 3-0 victory over West Ham - but his side initially struggled to reproduce that form in his absence.

"It's great to be back home".

"I think my boys decided", Bony said.

Lawrenson not only predicted a loss today, but also offered a bleak forecast for the rest of the season, stating that he thinks it will be a "real battle" for Newcastle to stay in the Premier League, as they have "too many Championship players". "They heard about the interest and said "Daddy you have to go back to Swansea".

Giggs added that Premier League style of play would suit the young player, who was part of the Euro 2016 winning squad, and thought the loan deal was a good move for Sanches, he said: "He can tackle, he can get forward and he's going to a club that play football the right way so I think he'll be a success".

The club announced his re-signing with a video on social media of the striker singing Swansea fans' iconic chant for him, which manager Paul Clement admitted he "couldn't get out of my head". "There were other options - Lille, Fenerbahce and others - but most important was what my family said". I don't regret the move. So it wasn't all bad.

"I wasn't fit enough and my body didn't react well to that".

He said, "I really fear for Newcastle this season and the signs from manager Rafa Benitez aren't good, I expect the Magpies to struggle at the Liberty Stadium, with Paul Clement doing brilliant work in the closing stages of the summer transfer window".

"I want that here because Swansea is where I played my best football - and I can get the special relationship back with the fans".
