- Harvey Barnes struck against Sheffield United to claim the award
- Youngster rifled home a half volley from the edge of the area
- Jamie Vardy was also shortlisted for the award for his first goal against Bournemouth
The youngster came off the bench in South Yorkshire and made an immediate impression for the Foxes, connecting sweetly with the ball on the edge of the area and rifling a powerful effort past home goalkeeper Dean Henderson.
Barnes has made four appearances in all competitions so far this season, with City occupying third place in the top-flight as well as securing their passage to the third round of the Carabao Cup after beating Newcastle United on penalties.
A graduate of the Club’s Academy, Barnes was shortlisted for the award alongside seven other players, including Jamie Vardy, who netted a delightful lob in the recent win over Bournemouth at King Power Stadium.
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.
Discussing the goal and his award, Barnes said: “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.
“It’s a great little award to pick up. I think when you get them goals you get a real adrenaline rush and I just headed to the corner to celebrate with the fans.
“Madders [James Maddison] and Hamza [Choudhury] all came over and jumped on me. Someone caught me on the head I think with a little headbutt, but it’s all part of the celebrations! The adrenaline is high, but it was a great feeling for me.”
