- Academy graduate Harvey Barnes spoke of an adrenaline rush after scoring the Budweiser Goal of the Month for August
- Barnes’ stunner against Sheffield United also won Leicester City’s Goal of the Month
- City next face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday (3pm BST kick-off)
Leicester City supporters – as well as fans of other football clubs – selected Barnes’ strike as their favourite from the month of August, while Jamie Vardy’s effort against AFC Bournemouth was also nominated.
The Academy graduate’s second goal for the Football Club came in emphatic fashion, as he hammered home the winner at Bramall Lane during the Foxes’ third outing of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.
“It’s a great award to pick up,” Barnes said. “I think when you get them goals, for me obviously it’s great, you get a real adrenaline rush. I think also to get the recognition, to get Goal of the Month, is great as well.
Barnes' Goal Of The Month Winner
Harvey Barnes picked up the Budweiser Goal of the Month award for August for his effort against Sheffield United.
“I just knew I had to hit it! There were too many people in the box to take a touch, so I think it was just all about keeping my eye on the ball and making sure the technique and the contact was right.
“As you saw in the goal, thankfully they were both there and, thankfully the ‘keeper didn’t get anything on it as well. I’ve played with Deano (Dean Henderson) a few times, so I know he’s capable of keeping them out, but thankfully it travelled a bit too quick for him.”
Barnes’ goal against the Blades sparked wild celebrations in the away end, as City recorded their first victory of 2019/20.

“Any sort of celebration, you plan before the game,” added Barnes. “I think in that sort of circumstance, where you’re scoring to put the team ahead and the emotions are high, I think they go out the window.
