A great opportunity to put pressure on the cockney trio in the places above us in the table.

The wins over West Brom & Liverpool and especially the way in which they were achieved, must take the black & whites into this match on a massive high.

Swansea have been a credit to themselves this season, some really good football and already assured of Premier League football.

At times they have been hit and miss, they recently won three in a row including a victory over Manchester City, only to follow up with defeats by Spurs away and Everton at home.

Their main danger man has been Geordie striker, Danny Graham, further proof with his twelve goals that players can still step up from the Championship, even in the hardest position of all.

This will be Newcastle’s sixth in a row televised match and it has all the makings of a real spectacle for the worldwide audience….so that’s another goalless drw guaranteed!

At St.James’ Park we didn’t see a goal as Tim Krul’s young Dutch counterpart, Michel Vorm, was outstanding.

With a front three like ours though I can’t see the match lacking a goal, though as well as Graham up front I think Nathan Dyer is an excellent player who we’ll need to be wary of.

I’m hoping we’ll see Jonas joining Tiote and Cabaye in a three man midfield with Guthrie out injured yet again, at left-back could this be the day that Santon is brought back into the fold to have  a run until the end of the season. The alternative is a fit again Ryan Taylor coming in.

With Newcastle playing in advance of the cockney trio this is a great chance to put the squeeze on and go into the weekend three ahead of Chelsea and only two behind both Spurs and Arsenal.

To do so United will have to achieve the win at The Liberty Stadium which none of these three managed to do, there is a massive carrot dangling though and I think Newcastle will do it.

In the betting stakes we have hooked up with ***Betfair. Many of you will have ‘normal’ betting accounts with the various bookies but what they have to offer is something very different but the most important thing is that the prices you get are better than anywhere else almost every time!

At the time of putting this together the prices on offer for our recommended bets were Cisse to score the first goal (just over 6-1), Newcastle to win 1-0 (10-1), Newcastle to lead at half-time (3-1) and  all prices better than any other online bookmaker.
