Burnley and Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Danny Ings' performance

Anfield

The two sets of supporters have their say on the Clarets striker's showing in Wednesday night's Premier League clash at Anfield.

Liverpool secured a comfortable 2-0 home win over Burnley on Wednesday night, as Clarets striker Danny Ings failed to get on the scoresheet in match which had been billed as his Anfield audition in the build-up.

Jordan Henderson, who was standing in as captain for the injured Steven Gerrard, smashed in a 20-yard strike to give Liverpool the lead on the half-hour, before Daniel Sturridge sealed the result nine minutes after the break with his first goal since the final day of January.

A summer transfer target for the Reds, per the likes of the Daily Mail, Ings had a relatively quiet night for the visitors, although he did have a penalty appeal turned down in the first-half after going down in the box under pressure from Henderson.

The 22-year-old front man is out of contract in the summer and, having proven his Premier League credentials with nine goals in 25 top-flight games this season, the likes of Brendan Rodgers are understandably said to be keen to swoop for his signature.

Nevertheless, having managed just one shot over the course of his 89 minutes on the pitch before going off with a knock, reaction on Twitter to his showing from both Burnley and Liverpool fans was far from positive.
