Leicester City winger honoured for his superb winner against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane

Harvey Barnes has won the August Budweiser Goal of the Month award for his thunderous half-volley at Sheffield United.

After coming on as a substitute, Barnes met a header from Leicester City team-mate Caglar Soyuncu and drilled an unstoppable shot that flew past goalkeeper Dean Henderson

Not only was it a stunning strike but it proved to be the winning goal as the Foxes inflicted upon the Blades their only defeat of the campaign so far.

Barnes talks to Spencer 

 

“I just knew I had to hit it!" Barnes told Leicester's official website. "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.

“I’ve played with Deano [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 was chosen as the winner by a panel of experts combined with a public vote, beating seven other August contenders.
