Swansea need one or two 'class' players - Carvalhal

"This game we prepared really well to play with the ball, I think we had 57% possession but we also tried to move the ball into the spaces to create damage to the defensive organisation of Newcastle.

"We corrected at the break and in the second half we controlled the game. I am very happy with the players' commitment, they were very good in these games and we are doing the things we are training on.

"When we arrived no-one outside Swansea believed we can stay in the Premier League but I believe when we achieve a draw here playing good football against a good team and especially the second half against Tottenham. People will look and see that these guys are reacting. It's our challenge, we are achieving points in a difficult situation, but we are reacting."

On whether Swansea would sign anyone in the transfer window, Carvalhal added: "I believe we will achieve new players soon, hopefully in the next few days and hopefully two or three good players. I am pleased with my players but we have some gaps. My players deserve that we bring in some class players to achieve another level."
