Few players at Newcastle have impressed as much as Fabian Schar this season. After a shaky start at St. James’ Park, the central defender quickly found his feet in the Premier League, and he’s now turned into one of our most solid options.
He’s played 17 games in the Premier League this term, and in addition to his robust defending, he’s also contributed going forward; most notably with his 3 goals. He’s also, according to Who Scored, been named the Man of the Match 4 times.
His brilliant performances have now been rewarded, too, with Newcastle confirming his latest achievement over on Twitter. Indeed, he’s been named in the EA Sports FIFA team of the week – an accolade that he certainly deserves.
