“My favourite centre-back in Europe” – A lot of Newcastle United fans are responding to another excellent display by their star defender Fabian Schar.

The 27-year-old has scored two goals and provided an assist for both club and country in the last eight days.

The latest piece of brilliance, from the man who cost £3m last summer, was a superb in-swinging cross that Admir Mehmedi was only too happy to glance into the back of the net.

This assist came just three days after the former Basel man scored a sublime goal against the Republic of Ireland.

The Swiss played a beautiful passing move that started with Schar, and when Breel Embolo played the ball back to him just inside the box, he swept a fantastic strike past Darren Randolph.

Schar took some time to settle into the Premier League, but since the second half of last season the 27-year-old has not put a foot wrong for Newcastle, and he is now a real fans’ favourite.

One Newcastle fan has claimed he is the club’s best attacker and defender while another believes that Steve Bruce should play him in midfield.

See the best of the reaction below.
