Fabian Schar looks to have once again shrugged off an injury in order to be available for selection by Newcastle United.

We've genuinely lost count of the amount of times we'd expected Fabian Schar to miss a game through injury only for the Swiss international to be there in the starting lineup for the following game. You just can't keep this man down.

In fact, not a game goes by that Schar doesn't hit the deck looking like his game is over only for him to be back on his feet and fighting fit moments later. In fact it's a running joke with the Ever More YouTube lads that we call time on Schar's inevitable head injury every game.

We often say Erling Haaland is a cyborg for his unnatural goalscoring ability, but Fabi is The Toonminator.

Schar was seen "doing a Wilson" at full time against Bournemouth. That is to say exiting the pitch with his arm in a makeshift sling like Callum Wilson did after the Nottingham Forest game.

After the game, Eddie Howe confirmed that Schar had hurt his wrist right at the end of the game and that he was in some pain.

We're waiting on images of Willock and Isak

However, Newcastle's official X account posted a few images from today's training session which shows The Toonminator in full swing on the training pitch suggesting that he's absolutely fine and will be fit to face Arsenal on Saturday.

Also pictured were Miguel Almiron, Jacob Murphy and Martin Dubravka.

We expect there'll be more images to come later on the official site which might hopefully give us a glimpse of Joe Willock and Alexander Isak who are reportedly back in training and could be in contention for the weekend.
