Newcastle’s Schar impressed against Watford but Wilson will be a bigger test

Newcastle United may have found themselves a new defensive star in Fabian Schar.

The summer signing has found first-team opportunities limited since his summer switch from Deportivo La Coruna.

But he was thrown into the action last weekend, replacing injured captain Jamal Lascelles at half-time.

Schar’s performance was exceptional as he helped shackle Isaac Success and contribute towards a clean sheet.

His ball-carrying skills were also impressive and Newcastle fans hold high hopes for him now.

This set the foundation for Newcastle to pick up their first win of the season. But now comes the real test for Schar.

Newcastle face Bournemouth and Callum Wilson is gunning for more goals.

With seven goals and four assists so far this season, the 26-year-old has been so impressive that Chelsea are pondering a move.

And with an England squad being announced soon, the ex-Coventry City striker will be eager to continue impressing as Bournemouth face the Magpies.

Wilson has blistering pace and he is a handful for any defender with his clever runs, good hold-up play and eye for goal.

Schar’s defensive ability will really be put to the test this weekend and fans will find out just how good he is when Wilson provides him with a tough challenge.
