End to end. Gouffran gets in behind on the left and when he can't find Cisse Swansea intercept and start an attack through Michu.

Newcastle with all the play early on. But, it is very early. Sissoko making a couple of good runs.

Ben Curran has been in touch via Twitter: "Can you see Swansea suffering a cup hangover today or will they kick off from where they left Sunday?" I guess we will see Ben. Great shout
The players are in the tunnel and just about to enter the field, which looks immaculate. Really looking forward to this one today.
Who is on Swansea penalty duty? That is the big question today
In front of the tunnel the League Cup has been placed. Nice for all the Swansea fans who couldn't make the trip to Wembley last week to finally see it.
Mark Woods has been in touch via Twitter already. He says: "Will Swansea be able to keep hold of Michu when the big clubs come calling in the summer?"
