Why Danny Ings is set to miss the next 3 weeks of action

Ings suffers injury

Danny Ings is set for an additional spell on the sidelines after suffering another injury in Southampton’s victory over Sheffield United last weekend. The England international has already missed 7 matches this season due to a number of injuries.

So far suffering a knee and hamstring issue, this time an adductor problem has surfaced for the former Liverpool striker.

‘Ings picked up an adductor injury at Bramall Lane and had a scan on Sunday morning, confirming he will be out for three weeks. He will miss Wednesday’s trip to Manchester City and the weekend clash against Brighton but could return after the international break,’ reports The Telegraph’s Mike McGrath.

This could have a serious impact on Danny Ings’ chances of reaching Gareth Southgate’s England squad with him likely to miss the final international break before the preliminary team is announced.

Harry Kane, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Tammy Abraham, Callum Wilson, Marcus Rashford, Ollie Watkins and Patrick Bamford have all been competing for call-ups this campaign.

Hasenhuttl rues small squad

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has spoken at his frustration of injuries affecting what is already a small squad. Losing Danny Ings once again is an issue but he is hoping that a turn in form could see the move to a more healthy position in the table.

“When you don’t have your first team on the pitch it’s always tough. We don’t have such a big squad. You miss players in crucial positions like right-back. When you get them back, you automatically feel more confident. You can immediately work on a few things we showed in the first half of the season,” said Hasenhuttl.

“There are still a lot of games to go. We’ve been much higher in the table then we had this negative run. It’s important we can turn it round now.”

The win against Sheffield United was important considering the poor run of form which the Saints have been enduring of late. The Austrian coach’s only criticism of the game was that they could have scored more.

“The first win after a long time is always an important one,” he told Sky Sports. “I think it was deserved, a good performance. It feels good.”

“The team did what we had to do against a side fighting for everything. We could have scored more. That’s the only thing I could criticise.” 

Southampton sit in 14th, 7 points above the relegation zone.
