Gary Lineker feedback on Harvey Barnes damage blow
Leicester City were beaten 3-1 at home by Arsenal in the Premier League today.
The Foxes had a great opportunity to overtake Manchester United with a win in the table and Brendan Rodgers will be disappointed with the drop in points.
However, Harvey Barnes injury will be more of a concern for Leicester at the moment.
The winger had to bail for six minutes in the second half and Rodgers is hoping he can return soon.
Former Leicester City striker Gary Lineker has now shared his reaction to the injury damage on Twitter.
Another violation for @LCFC and this time it’s the brilliant @ harveybarnes97. Hope it’s not as bad as it looks Lord God!

The 23-year-old has been outstanding for Leicester this season and he is one of their best players. Losing him for an extended period of time could be a severe blow to Rodgers and his side.
The Foxes missed a Top 4 result after a late breakdown last season and Rodgers is hoping to avoid a similar loss of form this season.
Barnes, getting back on track as soon as possible, will be key to his ambitions this season. He has 13 goals and four assists this season and could still play an important role in Leicester’s pursuit of Champions League qualification.
