Switzerland player Fabian Schar was on target as Newcastle United wrapped up their Premier League season with a win at the home of already-relegated Fulham. London club Fulham have beenconfirmed as one of three teams demoted to the English Championship alongside Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion.

Schar scored the second goal for the Magpies in the 2-0 away victory over Fulham after Arsenal loanee Joe Willock had given the visitors a first half lead. Willock gave Newcastle United the lead midway into the first half with a smart finish inside the box before the win was wrapped up by Switzerland player Schar from the penalty spot after Ex-Bournemouth utility player Matt Ritchie was fouled in the box by Fulham right-back Kenny Tete.

national team centre back Schar came off the bench to score from 12 yards out for his first goal of the season. He had made 17 appearances for the Magpies before the Fulham game. The Swiss international had come on for the final 17 minutes of the game in the place of Swedish international Emil Krafth.

The win over Fulham made it three wins from the last four games in the Premier League at the end of the season and it moved them up three places from 15th to 12th on the league table.

Willock has been the star of the show for Newcastle United in the final three months of the season . He was responsible for the first goal in the Fulham game after he produced a smart finish in the Cottagers box midway into the first half. The goal took his Premier League tally to eight goals for the season.

English midfielder Willock is on a short-term loan deal at Newcastle United from the Gunners and his strike against Fulham made it only the second Newcastle United player to score in seven Premier League matches in quick succession after club legend Alan Shearer.
