Leicester City haven’t won in four attempts since English football resumed. Winger Harvey Barnes attempts to explain the Foxes’ issues.

There are issues in the Leicester City side, with the team selections and system possibly in need of refreshing, modifying or generally altering. No wins in four in all competitions is alarming for Foxes fans.

Yet the club still sits in third Premier League place, following such excellent displays in the first half of the season. All that work is in danger of coming undone as confidence seems to be draining – unless James Maddison and Kelechi Iheanacho are on the field.

Nevertheless, manager Brendan Rodgers promised to fight for Leicester’s Champions League spot; only a mere few months ago that qualification run appeared like a foregone conclusion. How wrong we were. Immaturity, in the politest possible sense, was mooted as a potential reason for the sluggish, unacceptable return to playing for Rodgers‘ youthful roster.

Harvey Barnes regresses to unpolished diamond

Before the postponement of fixtures in the new year, Harvey Barnes was flying for the East Midlanders with 12 goal involvements with less than two thirds of the campaign completed. Unfortunately for the Foxes, the 22-year-old has been heavily involved since the restart but without exhibiting much quality.

Speaking to LCFC.com, Barnes said he doesn’t accept a loss of belief as to why they’re struggling. Instead, he offered the opinion that the squad is frustrated at their dwindling performance levels. Adding that the he and his team-mates are looking to bounce back versus Crystal Palace.
