Liverpool Star Suffers Massive Injury Blow

Liverpool striker Danny Ings has confirmed that he suffered a knock to his ankle during the 1-1 draw against Everton in the Merseyside side at the weekend, as per the Liverpool Echo.

Ings marked his first start in a derby with a well-placed header that went past Tim Howard and straight into the Toffees’ net, but he was substituted at Goodison Park after injuring his ankle.

The goal was the second one Ings has scored for the Reds since joining in the summer and the 23-year old has now become a fan favourite at Anfield not only for his lethal finishing, but also for his dedication and mental edge.

The former Burnley forward, who has just been called up to the senior England squad for matches against Estonia and Lithuania, believes the knock will not prevent him from missing those games.

“I just rolled my ankle a little bit under Phil Jagielka’s legs,” Ings confirmed.

“These knocks happen in every game and your adrenaline gets you through. I just need to look after it for the next couple of days.”

The Three Lions have already secured qualification to the 2016 European Championships in France, hence, their upcoming games hold little worth to them. Therefore manager Roy Hodgson could decide to use that as an opportunity to experiment with his squad ahead of the tournament.

Ings joins Dele Alli of Tottenham and Tom Heaton of Burnely as the only players in the England camp yet to receive a cap, and they will be hoping to earn their debuts in the upcoming fixtures.
