​Leicester winger Barnes out of Arsenal clash

Leicester City winger Harvey Barnes is still sidelined with a knee injury this weekend.

The Foxes are likely to be without their talisman attacker as they take on Arsenal in the Premier League.

Barnes has not played since he came off during City's last pre-season friendly against Sevilla.

He aggravated the same knee that required two operations last year, raising fears about his long-term future.

Manager Brendan Rodgers said at his press conference on Thursday: "(Barnes) has been with the medical team and still has an irritation around the knee, so I don't have an exact time on that."

Leicester will be hoping to bounce back after a 2-2 draw in their first game against Brentford.
