Harvey Barnes comes off injured in Newcastle’s match against Sheffield United

Harvey Barnes was forced to leave the pitch early after picking up a knock in Newcastle United’s away match with Sheffield United today.

The 25-year-old was struggling with what looked to be a muscle problem. After receiving treatment for a brief spell, he was unable to continue and slowly trudged off the pitch. 

This was only his second Premier League start for the Magpies after joining the club in the summer. 

The left winger hoped to impress manager Eddie Howe with his performance but was forced out of the game.

Howe replaced the newcomer with Anthony Gordon who made an immediate impact for the visitors. 

He brilliantly set up Sean Longstaff who smashed the ball into the net from 10 yards. 

Newcastle added two more by half-time, with Dan Burn and Sven Botman on target. 

Barnes arrived at the Tyneside club in the summer from Leicester City in a £38 million deal

The England international made an impressive start, scoring an injury-time goal in the Magpies’ 5-1 victory over Aston Villa after coming off the bench in the second half. 

He made substitute appearances in the following three Premier League matches before making his full debut against Brentford last week. 

Barnes failed to get on the scoresheet or contribute an assist, but his direct running caused problems for the Bees’ defenders.
