Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton says Swansea City have got ‘an almost perfect formula’.

Hughton is well aware of the strengths that Swansea City possess – their passing ability and their solid defence – and together it’s something that gives Sousa’s team the ‘almost perfect formula’.

Today’s game should be a cracker. Two form teams who play good football occupying first and fourth places respectively, and a huge crowd at the impressive St James Park should make it an exciting afternoon.

Hughton said:

“What they’ve got is almost a perfect formula,”

“They are a very good passing team who accept responsibility on the ball. But they also don’t concede many goals.

“What I expect to face are a very good side who hold possession well. They get into the right areas and they are a team that defensively will get bodies back behind the ball and make themselves tough to beat.

“Swansea are a form team and we’ve had form teams come to St James’ in the past and put up a good account of themselves. The onus is on us to win.”
