Swansea City defeated Newcastle United on Wednesday in what might be the luckiest 3-0 win in recorded history. Nathan Dyer opened the scoring just before half with a goal against the run of play that featured so many miscues by Newcastle players that I'm not even going to attempt to catalog them. They snagged their second on a Mathieu Debuchy own goal that was probably more Tim Krul's fault than anything. Jonjo Shelvey scored a third after an incident with Debuchy that should have seen the thumb-like midfielder sent off for a headbutt. Meanwhile, Newcastle had two separate penalty shouts, one of which was an egregious miss by Howard Webb, as a blatant handball on Chico Flores from a Loic Remy shot went unpunished.

The winning streak was always going to come to an end, of course, but it hurts to lose to a team fielding a weak squad in such a weak manner. Changes to the lineup are surely coming this Saturday, when Newcastle travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United.
