Leicester hero Guppy impressed by Barnes

Former Leicester City winger Steve Guppy is full of praise for Harvey Barnes' past season.

Barnes' crucial goal contributions against the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool, and technique on the ball, particularly impressed Guppy, who sees plenty more to come in the near future from the 23-year-old.

“I thought it was very exciting, he's a very interesting player," Guppy told LCFC.com. “He's obviously got a lot of pace and what I like about him is that he can move the ball and manipulate the ball at pace while not slowing down too much.

“He's comfortable doing it and that's a real difference maker. Not everyone is in control of their own space when they're running at the speed he does.

“Those players that run faster than everyone else, their technique has to be that much better else because they are moving quicker, and he's got that technique where he can manoeuvre the ball at pace.

“If you see some of the goals, some of the chances he's created last season, one of the highlights is regularly receiving the ball or dribbling with the ball at pace and he's able to move past defenders with his quick feet. It's a real talent."
