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.”
