Liverpool striker Danny Ings made a late return as the Reds were knocked out of the EFL Cup.

Ings came on with Liverpool already 2-0 down away at Leicester City, and his return was a rare bright spot on a miserable evening for Jurgen Klopp's side.

The former Burnley striker has bounced back from two serious injuries, and this was his first involvement with the first team since his latest injury.

Ings has not played a first team game for over a year, although he has been playing for the under-23s lately.

The striker did not have a lot to work with during his late cameo, but he did look bright and chased down possession.

There is potentially a spot for Ings in the Liverpool side if he can stay fit and re-discover his confidence.

This is just the first step in his latest return, although with the Reds knocked out, it is hard to assess when his next chance may be.

Liverpool have no need to rush him, and more matches to get sharp with the under-23s surely await despite his brief reminder of his promise last night.

Here is a look at how Liverpool fan reacted to his comeback...
