Newcastle United returned to winning ways in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon with a comfortable victory over Swansea City at home.
The Magpies got the better of Swansea 3-0 at St. James’ Park to enhance their chances of survival in the English top flight.
Jamaal Lascelles put the Magpies in the lead in the 40th minute, and Moussa Sissoko and Andros Townsend scored late in the second half to wrap up the three points for the Magpies.
The performance of Newcastle was quite encouraging, and the victory has certainly increased optimism among the fans.
The Newcastle players and manager Rafael Benitez showed during the game that they care about the supporters and the club (see photos below).
It is easy to claim that the players are not trying enough when results do not come, but the team showed against Swansea that they are doing the best they can.
Benitez’s task at St. James’ Park is hard, but it is clear that the former Real Madrid and Liverpool manager is doing his best.
The Magpies may go down to the Championship at the end of the season, but that will not be due to lack of effort, commitment or passion.
