The 30-year-old crashed down heavily on the ground and stayed motionless as the 52,000 seater St James’ Park was brought to silence.

His team-mates waved the medical staff on immediately, as centre-back partner Emil Krafth appeared to make sure that Schar didn’t swallow his tongue. 

Nketiah received a booking for the challenge, but VAR decided no further punishment was necessary.

Thankfully, a dazed Schar managed to get himself up and walk off, albeit gingerly, after lengthy treatment.

He was immediately replaced by Jamaal Lascelles, as the Magpies would go on to score two second-half goals.

Following the game, Schar did post a tweet in which he showed off a video from Newcastle’s official account showing off the incredible pre-match atmosphere against Arsenal.

Also during the match, Newcastle striker Callum WIlson played on despite dislodging a tooth.

The 30-year-old made his long awaited return to the starting XI in the 2-0 win over Mikel Arteta’s side after recently recovering from a calf injury which saw him miss 18 games.

But he suffered a whack to the face in the 27th minute and ran straight to the touchline to sort out what looked to be a dislodged front tooth. 

The striker managed to get back on the pitch and played a crucial role in giving Newcastle the lead at St James’ Park. 

Wilson burst into the box as Joelinton delivered a cross into the box before White put the ball into the back of his own net.
