Both clubs got their first wins of the season before the global break. After opening with a 0-0 draw at Southampton, Swansea were blown away by Manchester United in their first home game - but they picked some much needed confidence with a 4-1 League Cup win at MK Dons with their first Premier League win following a few days later away at Crystal Palace.
Swansea are expected to give a debut to Renato Sanches, a deadline day signing from Bayern Munich.
The Euro 2016 victor is, however, still only 20 years of age and Giggs is confident a player he considers to be "a gem" will get his career back on track after making a shock switch to the Liberty Stadium. Wilfried Bony returns to his former club and other incomings include Sam Clucas and Roque Mesa.
"Germany isn't that physical so I think the Premier League will suit him because he's physically strong, quick, aggressive, passes forward and I liked him instantly".
Kyle Bartley, Nathan Dyer and Ki Sung-yueng remain out.
The Magpies also went into the recent global break positively with an impressive win against an admittedly lacklustre West Ham United side last time out.

The commitment was there but I bet David Wagner and his coaches were over the moon that Rafa Benitez had chose to give them easy possession except in the final third.
"All they want is a bit of success".
This one may have been the worst of the lot all those years ago but both the on-field sending off of Jonjo Shelvey and the retroactive punishment to Aleksandar Mitrovic are right up there with the stupidest and rashest acts of the season so far. They've won three of the last four at home against this lot and bar an understandable thrashing at the hands of Man Utd that looked a lot worse than it was - three of the four goals were scored in the last 10 minutes of the match - they've been good.
The 31-year-old spent nearly 13 months on the sidelines after damaging knee ligaments while on worldwide duty with the Republic of Ireland in March 2016, returning for the final three games of last season to play a cameo role in the Magpies' successful promotion drive.
Asked what he believes would happen if Benitez left, Cole told the Daily Star: "Yes, I think they are going to struggle".
