Once Danny Ings shifted the ball beyond Japhet Tanganga, the end result was never in doubt.
And sure enough, a split-second later, the ball was nestling in the far corner of Hugo Lloris’s net. The most lethal striker in England right now had struck again in clinical fashion, taking his seasonal tally to 17 as Southampton gave Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham an almighty scare in the FA Cup fourth round replay on Wednesday night.
To say that Ings is making up for lost time after three years riddled with career-threatening injuries would be an understatement. And perhaps the biggest compliment that can be paid to Southampton’s very own ice-man is that he would be welcomed back with open arms at Anfield right now.
Liverpool fans have always been firm admirers of a man who saw a dream opportunity on Merseyside cruelly ripped away from him.
And with Ings recovering from two, yes two cruciate knee injuries to produce the best season of his career on the South Coast, there is no shortage of Liverpool supporters who would gladly hand a man once signed by Brendan Rodgers for £8 million a second chance.
