Newcastle fans rave about ’unbelievable’ defender Fabian Schar after Burnley win

Newcastle United fans on Twitter went crazy for defender Fabian Schar after his performance in the win over Burnley on Tuesday night.

Rafael Benitez’s team recorded a routine 2-0 victory at home in the Premier League and St James’ Park is becoming a fortress for them.

They have now picked up 13 points from their last six league matches and their form has seen them climb up to 13th in the table.

Schar opened the scoring after 24 minutes with a thunderous striker from 30 yards, as it cannoned in off the woodwork and left goalkeeper Tom Heaton helpless.

Academy graduate Sean Longstaff then added a second soon after to put the Magpies in pole position and they held on for another win.

Schar is a no-nonsense defender that has become an integral player under Benitez and is thriving as part of a three-man defence.

The 27-year-old has an incredible range of passing and constantly switches play from deep, while offensively he can create too and now has three goals this season.

He cost just £3million (BBC) last summer to capture and that certainly looks an incredible bargain.

Many Newcastle fans were blown away by the centre-back’s latest contribution, with one even claiming they will struggle to keep hold of him in the long-term.

Here are some of the Newcastle fans discussing Schar’s display against Burnley:
