Harvey Barnes: No better place to be than Leicester

Exciting Leicester youngster Harvey Barnes says the King Power is a terrific place to be at the moment.

The 21-year-old has been brilliant this season, grabbing four assists as the Foxes sit pretty in second on the Premier League table.

And Barnes says there is a feeling of optimism amongst Brendan Rodgers' side.

"It's a great place to be at the minute," the Academy graduate said this week. "You can see the buzz around the Club and as a player, being involved in it is great.

"We're going into most games at the minute thinking we're going to win. It's a great feeling to be as confident as we are as a team and as individuals as well.

"It's going to help massively and I think our performances at the minute are showing that. We've got a good mix at the minute."

He added: "I think we're building very good connections on and off the pitch. I think you can see when we're on the pitch, everyone wants to play for each other, everyone wants to get on the ball.

"Everyone's just dying to get on the ball and to link up and create things if it's not for themselves, then for other people and I think that has shown in a lot of our goals.

"I think we're all really excited to see where the season takes us."
