Danny Ings highlights positives for Liverpool despite Norwich draw

Paisley Gateway

The striker says it is important to forget the result as quickly as possible, with three big games coming up for the Reds.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Liverpool forward Danny Ings says there are positives to be taken from the draw with Norwich City.

The Reds drew 1-1 on Sunday to stretch their winless run in the Premier League to four games, following defeats to West Ham United and Manchester United.

It was a frustrating game at Anfield for Brendan Rodgers’ side as they created a number of chances throughout the 90 minutes, but failed to convert their opportunities.

Ings managed to get himself on the score sheet in the game, his first for the club, and despite the disappointment, says there were positives to be taken from the draw.

“We came off the pitch extremely disappointed we didn’t get all three points,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.

“But there were a lot of positives, especially in the second half. The game started a little bit flat, but we turned that around, created a lot of chances and there are positives to take from the game.”

Important three games, forget Norwich result 

With yet another negative result under their belt, manager Rodgers now finds himself under increased pressure at Anfield once again.

They now have three winnable games to turn things around, though, with a Capital One Cup tie against Carlisle coming before a home game against Aston Villa in the Premier League and FC Sion in the Europa League.

And Ings is more than aware that the pressure is on for them to win all three, stressing the importance of ensuring that the Norwich result does not linger in their memory.

“If we play the way we did in the second half and create those chances, I’m sure we can win those games,” he added.

“We’ve got to go into games with positive attitudes – let this game go, move onto the next one and carry on strong. It’s easy to dwell on games, but there is nothing you can do to change it now.”
