Harvey Barnes has just scored the best goal of the weekend in the Premier League, finding the net with a glorious curling effort just 73 seconds after Leeds went 1-0 up.
Raphinha opened the scoring at Elland Road with a free-kick that went all the way in from the right.
But then Leicester responded immediately from kick-off and launched the ball forward. Boubakary Soumare flicked the ball onto Barnes and the nifty winger did the rest.
He cut inside from the left flink and bent a gorgeous effort into the top corner.

4 - Raphinha has scored the opening goal in four Premier League matches this season; only Wilfried Zaha (also 4) has put his side 1-0 ahead as often in this season's competition. However, Harvey Barnes' equaliser for Leicester came just 73 seconds later. Frantic.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) November 7, 2021
Leeds goalkeeper Iselin Mellier could only watch as the ball flew in, with Barnes celebrating like a man who knew he had just scored one of the best goals of his career.
There were just 12 seconds of playing time between Raphinha's strike and the worldie from Barnes.
The picture perfect strike from Barnes is his 15th Premier League goal involvement since the start of last season.
The 23-year-old has 10 goals and five assists during that period, with his numbers made all the more impressive by the fact he spent a chunk out injured.
Barnes made his England debut against Wales in October 2020 and looked to be well in the conversation for Gareth Southgate's Euro 2020 squad until he got injured.
He signed a new deal with Leicester in the summer but has courted interest from some of England's big guns.
Last year, in a press conference, Jurgen Klopp hailed Barnes and said he felt he was a little underrated.
Klopp stated: "Barnes is probably one of the biggest talents, I’m not sure if he is respected or appreciated as much as he should be, he is an unbelievable player to be honest, a proper Leicester product."
