Distressing news out of Southampton, where rampant scoring Danny Ings has experienced another knee injury.
Ings scored in Saints’ 4-3 win over Aston Villa but left the match late with a knee injury.

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl was given the chance to downplay the injury but raised big concerns after the game when he admitted, “It didn’t look good to be honest. When I saw it I was just standing in front of him and hopefully it’s not too bad.”
He said in another interview, “(Ings) was immediately shouting ‘My knee, my knee.”
Ings scored 11 goals in his first Premier League season with Burnley, earning a move to Liverpool that was hampered by two knee surgeries.
The striker went on loan to Saints in 2018-19 and scored seven times, earning a move home ahead of a 22-goal 2019-20 season.
It would be a disheartening blow for the 28-year-old, who had worked his way back into the England side and helped Saints back into the European discussion with five goals and two assists in seven PL outings this season.
Ralph on Danny Ings: “It didn’t look good, to be honest. I hope it’s not too bad. He was immediately shouting, ‘my knee, my knee’. He will have a scan tomorrow.” #SaintsFC
