'I don't hate Leeds': £50m PL attacker insists he's got no problem with Jesse Marsch's side
Barnes has scored six times in seven games against Leeds and netted the second goal in the Foxes’ 2-0 win over Jessse Marsch’s men last night.
After the game, Barnes was asked what it is he enjoys about facing Leeds so much and was keen to make it clear it is not a personal vendetta!

He said: “I’ve got a good track record against them and that continued tonight which is a positive.
“It’s a good team for me to play. There’s a little bit of (extra confidence), only because I’ve scored against them in the other games.
“There’s no particular reason. I don’t hate Leeds or anything!
“It just seems to be at the minute when I play them, I end up scoring. Long may it continue.”
Barnes has been rated at £50 million and like a host of Leicester players, he is warming up after a slow start to the season.
The Foxes are up to eight points now, just one behind Leeds despite their contrasting form in the early weeks of the campaign.
Leeds do have a game in hand – away at bitter rivals Manchester United – but Marsch needs to find some answers quickly.
