Marc Albrighton & Harvey Barnes

Harvey Barnes scored his 10th goal of an impressive season against Southampton in January 2021.

Leicester earned all three Premier League points from the previous encounter with the Saints at King Power Stadium on 16 January, 2021.

The opener came via a superb pass from Youri Tielemans, spotting the run of James Maddison, who brushed off the attentions of Jack Stephens before firing the ball into the near top corner from an acute angle.

Tielemans also assisted Harvey Barnes' second, threading the ball through for the England winger to race onto and slot beyond Alex McCarthy in the closing stages to seal a 2-0 success.
