Fans & Pitch - Swansea v Chelsea

Swansea City defeated Newcastle United 2-0 at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

Former Ipswich Town midfielder Matt Holland has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Swansea City’s win against Newcastle United at home on Saturday afternoon.

The Swans defeated the Magpies 2-0 at the Liberty Stadium in their second Premier League game of the season.

The Welsh outfit headed into the encounter on the back of a 2-2 draw with English champions Chelsea away from home at Stamford Bridge.

Garry Monk’s side were favourites to pick up all three points against Newcastle on Saturday, and they did so without facing too much problem.

Jonjo Shelvey set up Bafetimbi Gomis to round goalkeeper Tim Krul and slot into an empty net to give Swansea the lead as early as the ninth minute.

Newcastle went down to 10 men shortly before the half-time interval when defender Daryl Janmaat was sent off for persistently fouling Jefferson Montero, who provided the cross for Andre Ayew to head home the hosts’ second and final goal of the afternoon seven minutes into the second half.

Holland was following the game, and he was impressed with the performance produced by Swansea.
