Sports Mole looks ahead to Wednesday night's Premier League game as in-form Newcastle United travel to Swansea City.

Newcastle United will look to make it five straight Premier League victories when they travel to Swansea City on Wednesday night.

Alan Pardew's side had a perfect November as they conceded just two goals while beating Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Norwich City and West Bromwich Albion to move up to sixth in the table.

The run of form means that Pardew is unlikely to make any changes to his lineup, with Hatem Ben Arfa and Papiss Cisse set to remain on the bench for the trip to the Liberty Stadium.

Hosts Swansea are without Wilfried Bony, Michu and right-back Angel Rangel and manager Michael Laudrup must decide whether first-choice goalkeeper Michel Vorm is fit enough to come back.

Leon Britton was absent for the defeat at Manchester City this weekend but could be back in the squad tomorrow night.

Both games between these two last season finished in Swansea victories, with Luke Moore grabbing a late winner when they last met at the Liberty Stadium.
