This Saturday Swansea City is hosting Newcastle United at the Liberty Stadium for the sixth match of the Premier League season.
Swansea has had an extremely successful start to the season, they are currently fifth in the league with 10 points having won 3 games, drawn 1 and lost two. They are tied for points with fourth place Arsenal and sixth place Aston Villa.
