For Leicester this season, Barnes has managed to score just once but has assisted four times in the Premier League, impressive for a player who is only 22-years-old. West Brom is currently unbeaten in their last 12 Championship matches and has won nine of them.
Here’s what the West Brom fans had to say about the Harvey Barnes footage:

What Do We Think?
Despite being without Barnes, this is normally a fixture that West Brom do well in, with Brentford failing to beat the Baggies in the last three meetings; Slaven Bilic’s side has won two out of the last three, with just one draw which came on 3rd December 2018.
We expect West Brom to continue their unbeaten run, but perhaps this fixture will be tougher than it looks on paper, with Brentford in good form losing just twice in their last six matches.
