Rafa Benitez reacts to Jonjo Shelvey's handshake snub at Newcastle

Newcastle United 1 Swansea City 1 Joselu rescues point for Magpies

The 23-year-old centre-back has emerged as a pivotal man in Benitez's team having grown as both player and leader since captaining the Magpies to the Sky Bet Championship title last season. Despite the clubs high-profile take over yet to be confirmed, Newcastle's Spanish tactician has somewhat managed to relieve some of the pressure on the north-west side.

VAR was trialled in the FA Cup and League Cup over the last week, and the Portuguese wants to see the technology implemented fully.

Lascelles has been important for Newcastle this season - they have collected 21 points from the 16 league games in which he has featured, and just one from the six in which he has not - and Benitez will hope he can build upon that record when Swansea head for St James' Park on Saturday.

- Swansea have won four points in their two Premier League away games under Carlos Carvalhal - as many as they'd won in their previous nine in the top-flight.

But on a day when defeat was simply not an option, they fought back to snatch a 1-1 draw which at least prevented bottom-of-the table Swansea from collecting three points for just the third time in 15 attempts.


Newcastle pair Rob Elliot and Chancel Mbemba are available after respective thigh and knee injuries.

"We have [Jesus] Gamez, [Florian] Lejeune and [Aleksandar] Mitrovic (out), who has been running today", he added. For Swansea's new boss, he will know that he will face an uphill struggle to secure the Swans Premier League status come May.

Joselu came off the bench to cancel out a second-half goal from Jordan Ayew.

Perez should have scored after being played in by Ritchie with 26 minutes gone, but saw his initial effort saved by the keeper and his follow-up blocked by the covering Ki Sung-yueng, and former Swansea midfielder Shelvey curled a 34th-minute free-kick harmless over after Atsu had been felled inches outside the penalty area.

Opposite number Benitez also assessed an eventful 90 minutes with mixed emotions, bemoaning his side's profligacy in front of goal but praising their resilience as their run without a home league win stretched to seven games.
