Danny Ings Coulf Return Before Friday
England striker Danny Ings suffers a knee injury which could stop him from playing their next game. The injury however does not appear to be as serious as it appears at first. He was substituted in the 85th minute of the 4-3 Premier League win at Aston Villa on Sunday.
After the match, Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl said the injury to Ings’ left knee did not “look good”.
But the club said on Monday that “the initial results” of Ings’ scan “are favourable.” Further assessment will be taken soon to know more about the injury. “After having the scan on Sunday night, the club conducted a further assessment of Ings. This morning they still continued to monitor him throughout the week.”
Danny Ings will be due for another scan and it has not been entirely ruled out that he might play against Newcastle on Friday.
The England striker scored 22 goals last season, one behind golden boot winner Jamie Vardy. He has so far scored five goals in seven games this season.
