But their Swansea success - secured by skipper Jamaal Lascelles' second-half header - was their first in the Premier League since a 2-1 victory at Tottenham in December 2015.

Moreno added: "We are very glad because we planned the game to try and win three points and we did it".

"Matt Ritchie has a great delivery and it was my job to get on the end of it". There was expectation going into the game but we were second best in combats, duels, first and second balls, tactics, all aspects. "We've not played well and we've lost the game".

"We were very balanced between defence and attack and we are very pleased with the team".

Newcastle's main source of concern during the contest came when they were spared from being reduced to 10 men after Ritchie produced the sort of high foot just after half-time which saw Sadio Mane sent off for Liverpool at Manchester City on Saturday.

The Swans started the brighter of the two teams in what was an intense first half, controlling possession through the midfield quartet of Clucas, Sanches, Carroll and Fer.

But Bony had barely had a touch by the time Newcastle went ahead through Lascelles' header. "I know the manager - I've worked with him for nearly a year, and I am very happy to be here".

'We will be hard to beat back home but if we play like this every week, we will do well. I think with the players they've got they will be doing well to stay out of the relegation fight. "Something is obviously not right on this in the details of how we defended and that's what we've got to get right", he said.

"I am not a fan of zonal marking, so to see them set up like that, I thought we'd get chances", said Lascelles.

Tammy Abraham should have given Swansea the lead on the hour when he rounded goalkeeper Rob Elliot and seemed certain to apply the finish.

A new Premier League rule means players can be punished retrospectively for acts of simulation, but this is one case which will not be reviewed because Mike Jones did not fall for it and award a penalty.
