Rodgers unfazed by Barnes form

16th April 2019, 13:56 by Tom Hill

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers claims midfielder Harvey Barnes does not need to worry about his lack of goals.

The England U21 international has played a major role at the club since January after he was recalled from his successful loan spell at West Brom.

Barnes has made 12 appearances in the Premier League since his return to the King Power Stadium, but he has not managed to score in any of those games.

Former Celtic boss Rodgers is predicting a big future for the 21-year-old and he has urged the wideman to not let his recent record get to him.

He told reporters: "It is just a case of adding to what he has.

"We need to get him pressing higher up the pitch so you have more chances to create opportunities to score. He is a wonderful talent.

"He doesn't have to get hung up on the goals side of it yet, although eventually that is what he will be judged on. What he creates and scores."
