Leicester City fans react to performance of Harvey Barnes in Aston Villa win

The 22-year-old scored twice and was a constant menace for Dean Smith’s team last night.

Leicester City maintained their third-place Premier League position with a 4-0 win over hapless Aston Villa last night.

A brace apiece for Harvey Barnes and Jamie Vardy ensured that Leicester held onto an eight-point gap to Manchester United in fifth.

Leicester had been suffering from some indifferent form but they roared back to their best to keep Villa inside the bottom three.

One man who was inspired for the Foxes last night was Barnes who took his goals superbly well.

The 22-year-old looks set for a very bright future in the game and scored his sixth and seventh goals of the campaign last night.

He also has seven assists to his name and with England boss Gareth Southgate willing to hand youth a chance, Barnes must be in his thoughts ahead of Euro 2020.

James Maddison and Vardy typically earn the rave reviews but during the second half of the campaign, Barnes has come of age.

Following his two-goal showing last night, supporters took to Twitter to speak of their delight at the winger’s form.

Here is a selection of tweets from the Leicester faithful regarding Barnes’ performance against Villa.
