Clark insists it is business as usual for Newcastle even without Benitez

Newcastle face Swansea at 4pm on Sunday- a huge 708-mile round trip for the Magpies

After securing their first win of the campaign with a 3-0 home victory over West Ham before September's worldwide break, the 31-year-old now believes that Newcastle can get their season off properly - starting with another possible three points against the Swans.

Newcastle followed up their 3-0 home victory over West Ham before the worldwide break by limiting Swansea to a handful of scoring opportunities.

"After the game Rafa rang and he has congratulated everybody, especially the players because they have done a massive job".

"That wasn't good enough but our shape didn't cause them enough problems".

Although the margin of the defeat is small, I'm more disappointed with our performance. I thought they were better than us. We had good training week and the meetings were good.

"There was a lot of expectation around him, which is normal, and he is a player that will get better and better with us, the more he gets to know team-mates and system and the more he understands the culture".

"That's not good enough and I take responsibility for that performance".

They were fortunate to finish with 11 men after Matt Ritchie escaped a red card for the sort of high foot just after halftime on Alfie Mawson which saw Sadio Mane sent off for Liverpool at Manchester City on Saturday. "Something is obviously not right on this in the details of how we defended and that's what we've got to get right", he said.

"We are very glad because we planned the game to try and win three points and we did it, " Moreno said.

The former Nottingham Forest trainee had made a crucial intervention in his own penalty box minutes earlier, clearing off the line after on-loan Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham had rounded Rob Elliot.

Swansea are expected to give a debut to Renato Sanches, a deadline day signing from Bayern Munich.

"It was very frustrating and I'm not quite sure why it turned out like that, " said Swansea head coach Paul Clement.
