Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl says he and his staff will have to wait to discover the full extent of Danny Ings’ injury sustained against Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.

Ings scored Southampton’s stunning fourth goal of a 4-3 win before being forced off with his suspected knee injury in the second half.

The striker, is Southampton’s top goalscorer, has a history of knee injuries which blighted his time spent at Liverpool before joining his boyhood club Saints.

“[Danny] Ings’ doesn’t look good and it was right in front of me,” Hasenhuttl said in an interview after the game. “We know his history with these knees.

“It is not swollen. He stretched his knee. Let’s have a look tomorrow.”

Ings wasn’t the only player forced to withdraw from the game with injury.

Defender Jan Bednarek was substituted at half time after picking up a knock, while Ryan Bertrand was also forced off with a muscle strain.

“[Jan] Bednarek was a brutal duel in the first half but this is the reason why we subbed him at half-time. He did not feel good,” Hasenhuttl said.

“Let’s have a look. Let’s hope there isn’t anything too hard. Bertrand had a hamstring problem. Let’s hope.”
