Ings Back with a Bang as Saints Beat Crystal Palace

Danny Ings scored twice on his return from injury as Southampton came out on top 3-1 in an exciting end-of-season encounter with Crystal Palace.

With both teams free of the shackles of relegation it resulted in a pulsating encounter full of chances, sparked by an early Christian Benteke opener (2).

But Ings – on his first start since limping off against Tottenham – skilfully equalised with Southampton’s first effort on goal (19). Palace squandered a perfect opportunity to take the lead but Luka Milivojevic’s penalty was saved by Fraser Forster (41).

Southampton made them pay as Che Adams slid home at the back post (48) and Ings neatly finished off a flowing move (75) to wrap up the points. It was a timely reminder of his qualities with only two weeks until Gareth Southgate names his 26-man England squad for the Euros.
