Five minutes till kickoff at St James'Park.
14:52
Striker Michu failed a fitness test due to a swollen ankle. The striker's injury problems have been a key factor in their struggles, with this fan speculating on his future:

RT @matgower: No Michu again for Swansea. I wonder if he'll play for the Swans again? I'm not so sure.

14:47
This Swans fan is buoyed by Newcastle's lack of goal scorers. Also Swansea have benefited from eight own goals this season - more than any other side.

RT @Texas_Toon: Swansea don’t need a team talk, all their manager needs to do is pin the Newcastle United teamsheet to the wall to motivate…

14:42
A lot of criticism on Twitter about Alan Pardew's team selection. However Garry Monk has picked up only two points from five away games and the Swans have gone 14 away games without keeping a clean sheet.
14:37
This Toon fan is not happy with the team line-up. Bearing in mind, Sunderland (3) have scored more goals at St James’ Park in 2014 than Newcastle (2) have.

#False RT @schtev_slade: We're basically playing with a false nine, a false ten and a false eleven. Newcastle > Spain

14:33
Interesting stat about today's two teams:

RT @NewcastleStats: If the Premier League had begun on January 1, Swansea would be in 18th and Newcastle only one point and one place above…

14:28
The Magpies have lost six of their last eight home league games, failing to score in all six defeats. And they are the only team yet to reach double figures for goals in 2014.
14:23
Loic Remy and Mathieu Debuchy are only on the bench for the Magpies having missed the last six matches due to injury. Moussa Sissoko and Hatem Ben Arfa remain on the sidelines.
14:18
NEWCASTLE UNITED: Krul, Coloccini, Williamson, Dummett, Anita, Gosling, Tiote, Gouffran, De Jong, Cisse, Sh Ameobi...Subs: Elliot, Debuchy, Haidara, Yanga-Mbiwa, S Taylor, Armstrong, Remy /// SWANSEA CITY: Vorm, Rangel, Amat, Williams, Davies, Britton, Shelvey, De Guzman, Routledge, Hernandez, Bony...Subs: Tremmel, Taylor, Bartley, Fulton, Dyer, Emnes, Ngog.
14:13
Garry Monk has described this week's training ground bust-up as “handbags”: "It was all over and done with, no problems whatsoever, and then it gets blown out of proportion. We have got a good idea of the source that it has come from to try and unsettle us at this time. But I think you could see on Sunday (against Chelsea) just how unified the group is with the performance. When you are in a training environment and you have got 20 or 30 men with intensity and working hard, these things happen."
14:08
Alan Pardew said he wants the feel good factor to return to the Toon Army with the performances they showed in the first half of the season. "I want to bring back that harmony we had with them not so long ago. The fans are fair. We haven’t been fair with them recently, with our performances. If you lose four on the trot as Newcastle manager it’ll always be difficult.”
14:03
Swansea will be without suspended defender Chico Flores after his red card against Chelsea last weekend with Jordi Amat replacing him.
13:58
Hello and welcome to the live commentary of Newcastle v Swansea in the Premier League. This has become a crucial game for the Swans due to their poor run of results while Alan Pardew needs a win to silence the boo boys.
