Former Liverpool striker Danny Ings is currently in the form of his life. The 27-year-old joined the Anfield club from Burnley back in the summer of 2015 for £7.47m (via Transfermarkt.co.uk), but failed to fulfil his potential there, largely because of injury troubles that saw him miss no fewer than 85 games.
When Ings was eventually sold to Southampton four years after he had arrived on Merseyside, he had only made 25 first-team appearances for the club and so naturally, there will have been question marks around whether or not he could ever rediscover his best form.
Did Liverpool give up on Danny Ings too soon?
However, to his credit, the striker has proven himself to be excellent when fit, and the fact he’s scored 14 goals in his 25 Premier League appearances for Southampton this season is evidence of that.
Despite things not working out during his time with Liverpool, these fans have taken to social media to express how pleased they are to see the former Burnley forward fit and firing once again.
Agree with this, came across really well and was a shame he never worked out for us

Clear with the reception he got last Saturday that all fans think the same song with the players and coaches

It is brilliant to see Danny Ings come back so stronghly after his injuries. As an LFC fan, am delighted to see him banging in the goals. He is held in high esteem by our fans and wish him well #TOTSOU

What do we think?
It’s clear from these supporters’ tweets that Danny Ings is still held in extremely high esteem by the Anfield faithful and his impressive goal at Tottenham Hotspur for Southampton on Wednesday night served as a reminder of just what the Englishman can do when in top form.
