Fabian Schar stunning goal nominated for Premier League goal of the month – Vote now
Fabian Schar has been outstanding for Newcastle United this season.
It took a while for him to get a proper chance but since he has become established in the starting eleven, the defender has proved a real asset.
In the 16 games Fabian Schar has featured in, Newcastle have gained 28 points. In the 12 matches where he hasn’t played, NUFC have picked up a measly three points.
His passing has also been a feature of the defender’s game and now he is adding goals.
The two against Cardiff set Newcastle off on their current good form, whilst the stunner against Burnley on Tuesday was awesome.
That Fabian Schar goal has now been nominated to be the Premier League goal of the season for February.
See below on how to vote and also a chance to watch the goal again.
Newcastle United official announcement:
‘Fabian Schär’s stunning opener in Newcastle United’s 2-0 win against Burnley has been shortlisted for Carling Goal of the Month.
The Switzerland international took aim from 30 yards midway through the first half of the Premier League game at St. James’ Park, beating goalkeeper Tom Heaton with a thumping drive which flew in off the post.
And that goal against the Clarets – which was Schär’s third for the Magpies, after his brace against Cardiff City in January – has been nominated for February’s award, along with seven other strikes.
They include Andre Gomes’ effort for Everton against Wolves and Nathan Redmond’s for Southampton against Burnley.
