Danny Ing's Early Goal Stuns Liverpool At St Mary Stadium

Danny Ings' early goal was enough for Southampton to end their wait for a win over Liverpool, who put in a toothless display at St Mary's.

Liverpool's frustrating run continued as they slipped to a 1-0 Premier League defeat against
Southampton, handing further impetus to
Manchester United and the chasing pack.

Having drawn their final two games of 2020 to
West Brom and Newcastle United , Liverpool were downed by an early goal from their former striker Danny Ings at St Mary's.

They remain top, above United on goal difference having played a game more ahead of a crunch clash between the two old rivals at Anfield on January 17.

Ings' earliest goal of his Premier League career came after Liverpool switched off from a James Ward-Prowse free-kick.

Southampton might have added to their lead before half-time, but although Jurgen Klopp's champions dominated after the restart, they could not avoid a second league defeat of the season.

Liverpool were boosted by the return of Thiago Alcantara, yet it was the Spain international's foul that resulted in Southampton's second-minute opener.

Ward-Prowse's clever free-kick caught the visiting defence cold and, with Alisson stranded, Ings delicately lofted in his 50th Premier League goal.
