As for the hosts, Paul Clement's Swansea City side are now 14th in the Premier League table with four points from three games this season, coming off the back of an opening day draw with Southampton, defeat to Manchester United and recent win over Crystal Palace. The captain is going to be a vital figure this season for the Magpies.
Paul Clement is still yet to lose back to back home games as a manager.
It was also Newcastle's first away win in the Premier League since 2015, and it saw the Magpies climb up to 10th in the table. They restricted Swansea to few goalscoring opportunities and would have taken the lead earlier but for Lukasz Fabianski producing a wonderful fingertip save to keep out Joselu's header.
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. "Some of the basics we never got right, just that competitiveness".
"That's not good enough and I take responsibility for that performance".
Ponderous and pedestrian in possession, Swansea only cut through Newcastle on one occasion, when Leroy Fer released Abraham on the hour.

"After the game, Rafa rang us and congratulated all the team because they did a fantastic job".
"Now it is a matter of working hard and building up to the game and hopefully we will be ready on game day".
"Rafa was talking with us, " Moreno said.
"I'm really not satisfied with the way we played".
Much of the pre-match hype surrounded Swansea's new signings, the much coveted Renato Sanches and the returning Wilfried Bony.
Renato Sanches will need time: A lot of people were very quick to dismiss Sanches after his debut for the Swans but that seems incredibly harsh.
"Clearly you are disappointed when you lose some key players, and in Sigurdsson, Llorente and (Jack) Cork three very good players left the club".
