Lots of Newcastle fans have been running the rule over Saturday’s crucial win, and they’re absolutely delighted with the form of Fabian Schar.
Newcastle continued their winning ways on Saturday, beating Bournemouth 2-1 courtesy of a brace from Salomon Rondon.
The powerful Venezuelan is now the Magpies’ top scorer this season, which unfortunately only serves to show just how poor they have been in front of goal.
As is usually the case with Rafael Benitez’s side, they have been rock solid at the other end though, and fans are praising the influence of Schar.
The Swiss international was tipped to be the next big thing when he broke through at Basel as a youngster, and he is now starting to show that potential.
The 26 year-old started alongside the impressive Federico Fernandez on Saturday, and his positive passing out from the back made a huge difference.
He was also solid at the back, winning four aerial duels and making three tackles, four interceptions and nine clearances.
Rafa’s move to sign the young defender for a nominal fee is looking like an absolute stroke of genius, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

Wow! What a first-half! Schar is outstanding with his range of passing from the back…Cant remember Shearer ever scoring a better header than Rondons goal…Its still wide open though so my revised prediction is 4-2 to @NUFC

I have always maintained that our best central defenders are Fernandez,Schar and Lejunne .Lascelle is passionate and has got heart but that can take you far, but there are time that guile and technique does the magic .Lascelles and Clarke are what we call back men in nigeria😀😀

We really should have killed that game off, could have had 4 or 5. Thankfully Fernandez, Schar and Rondon were all massive. Won everything 👊

Schar was imperious at CB today, picking some lovely forward passes as well #NUFC
