Schar's goal in the 2-0 win was Newcastle's first to be scored from outside the box in the Premier League this season.
Asked about the strike afterwards, Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez said: "In training sessions he is quite good so we knew before, and you know now that he can do that!
"He is comfortable on the ball and the understanding between Jamaal [Lascelles], [Florian] Lejeune and Schar is getting better and means we are more solid in defence."
