Newcastle United gets by Swansea City 1-0

Newcastle made it back-to-back wins on Sunday with a 1-0 victory over Swansea thanks to Jamaal Lascelles' late header.

The captain rose highest to give the visitors the lead with just 12 minutes remaining as he met Matt Ritchie's corner and powered a header beyond Lukasz Fabianski.

Swansea (1-1-2) had been the team on top to start, though Newcastle (2-0-2) had the majority of the chances as Jacob Murphy lobbed the keeper but only found the roof of the net.

The game burst into life in the second half and Tammy Abraham headed wide before rounding Rob Elliot only to see his shot cleared off the line by Lascelles. With time running out, up popped the captain to give his side all three points.
