Danny Ings’ early goal helped secure a 1-0 home win against league leaders, Liverpool, at the Saint Marys Stadium on Monday night.

Southampton drew the first blood two minutes into the game as Ings caught the defending champions’ defence napping before chipping a clever finish above Alisson Becker.
