Southampton 1-2 Liverpool: 5 Hits and Flops
#3 Hit: Danny Ings
It's never easy to play against the club that once sold you. For Danny Ings, he had to come off the substitutes' bench and face the side who deemed him surplus to requirements after troublesome injury issues hampered his development at Anfield. Ings has always been a hard-working striker who relishes aerial duels and playing on the shoulder of the last defender.
In this cameo, he was granted 26 minutes to produce some goalscoring magic against the European champions. In that brief time, the 27-year-old attempted four shots, completed one dribble and scored to halve the deficit with time running out - causing panic for the visitors.
His goal stemmed from an infectious high workrate he possesses, chasing down Adrian in the penalty area. After a promising start, the Englishman will hope this is just the first of many for the campaign, aiming to add consistent goals to his game.Published 18 Aug 2019, 08:55 IST
