Swansea beat Newcastle
SWANSEA City recorded their second away Premier League win of the season as goals from Michu and Jonathan de Guzman secured a 2-1 triumph at Newcastle.
The hosts hit back through Demba Ba in injury time, but that proved to be no more than a consolation.
Michael Laudrup's side had the better of the first half when Nathan Dyer, Pablo Hernandez and Itay Shechter all missed chances.
But Newcastle came closest to breaking the deadlock when Ba headed wide from point blank range.

The Magpies introduced Shola Ameobi at half-time and put Swansea under pressure at the start of the second period with a series of long balls forward.
The hosts looked vulnerable on the counter attack, though and that is how Swansea took the lead.
They had already threatened on the break before Michu put them in front on 58 minutes.
Hernandez capitalised on a defensive mistake before supplying an inch-perfect cross that his countryman headed past Tim Krul.
Newcastle went in search of an equaliser, but struggled to break down a well organised Swansea defence.
As the clock ticked down the visitors doubled their advantage.
Krul could only palm Danny Graham's shot into the path of Jonathan de Guzman who finished well from an acute angle.
There was still time for Ba to snatch an injury time goal for Newcastle to set up some tense final moments.
But Swansea held out to extend their unbeaten run to four matches.
