Football News

For Covid-19, Southampton striker Danny Ings has tested positive and is expected to miss the trip to Leicester City on Saturday, manager Ralph Hasenhuettl said on Thursday.

Hasenhuettl said after their 1-0 Premier League victory over Liverpool at home last Monday, Ings returned a good result, where the 28-year-old scored the winning goal.

“Since the Liverpool game, we’ve had one positive test: Danny Ings, so he’s been out for the past 10 days,” Hasenhuettl told reporters.

“Maybe he was a contagious man against Liverpool. But since then, we have had no other positives. You mitigate the risks when you adhere to the guidelines and that’s what we continue to do. I don’t know if Danny’s going to be able to come back (to training) tomorrow, but it looks like he’s going to be out for the weekend.”

Striker Michael Obafemi, after undergoing surgery, will also miss the game on Saturday, but goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and forward Che Adams are available. Amongst the long-term absentees, Moussa Djenepo joins Nathan Redmond and Jannik Vestergaard.

After 17 games, Southampton is seventh in the league with 29 points, while Leicester is fourth on 32 points from 17 games.
