'I want him': Even some rival fans are wowed by one Leicester player's display v Legia
Leicester City winger Harvey Barnes delivered a masterclass for the Foxes in their Europa League win over Legia on Thursday night.
And even some fans of Leicester’s rivals – such as Liverpool and Arsenal – couldn’t help but praise the 23-year-old.
Barnes helped Brendan Rodgers’ side record a 3-1 win at the King Power Stadium to go top of Group C going into the final round of fixtures.
The England international provided the game’s first assist, setting up Patson Daka to turn Mateusz Wieteska and rifle into the far corner.
Barnes was impressive throughout, registering four shots, two of which were on target, making two key passes, and registering two dribbles.
Here is what some fans were saying about his display:

Leicester doubled their lead on 21 minutes through James Maddison.
However, Filip Mladenovic halved the deficit with a 26th-minute strike following a penalty.
Wilfred Ndidi, who conceded the penalty, made amends by heading home from Maddison’s corner just after the half-hour mark.
