#NEWCASTLE PERSPECTIVE ON #NUFC 1-1 #SWANSEA BY @michaelmaclauchlan •••••
"Swansea City came to St James' park, where they have had a great time recently, and they were terrible. Their players gave the ball away in their own half and they wasted some good chances, Newcastle should have been 5-0 up at half time. Dwight Gayle wasted 5 good chances and proved, yet again, that he is not Premier League quality. Ayoze Perez missed the best chance of the game when he tamely hit the ball at Fabianski and Matt Ritchie and Jonjo Shelvey, yet again, wasted every dead ball we had. Speaking of Shelvey he had his best game of the season and Ritchie should not have been on the pitch, Jacob Murphy should have taken his place. Jordan Ayew popped up early in the second half and needed two bites of the cherry to beat Karl Darlow but their lead only lasted 8 minutes as Joselu somehow managed to squeeze the ball in the net. Wilfred Bony should have scored late on as terrible work by Ciaran Clark and Karl Darlow left him with an open goal but he hit a tame effort and Yedlin managed to stop it. Swansea should have had a penalty and Diame should have been sent off as he blocked a ball on the line with his elbow but the ref didn't see it. We should have won this must win game but we didn't and it leaves us in trouble with the Manchester clubs, Palace and Burnley in our next four games. My ratings would be as follows:
MOTM: Shelvey. "
