Ings nets twice as U23s defeat Sunderland

Danny Ings bagged a brace as Liverpool U23s claimed their fourth straight win by beating Sunderland 3-0 on Sunday afternoon.

The striker kept up the pressure on the players currently occupying the attacking berths in Jürgen Klopp’s senior team as he struck twice in yet another victory for Michael Beale’s side.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was also on the scoresheet, helping the young Reds to a win that takes them up to third place in Premier League 2.

Ings was the main outlet for the hosts in the first half, and went close after ten minutes when he produced a fine flick around the corner in the box to work space but saw a shot smartly saved.

The opening 45 saw few chances after that early flurry, however, with Sunderland consistently finding the defensive answers when put under pressure by the Reds.

But, just minutes into the second period, that resistance was broken.

Liverpool caused panic in the visitors’ box as they rained in shots that were kept at bay by several desperate blocks but there was little the Black Cats could do when the ball fell to Ings and he coolly slotted home.

The 24-year-old almost got another straight after when he saw Max Strycek produce a fine save after a clever dribbling run had worked space.

But with an hour on the clock, Ings made no mistake as he met Pedro Chirivella’s tempting first-time cross and sent a brilliant diving header into the top corner.

There was still time for Alexander-Arnold to grab a deserved goal, with the young Scouser bursting into the box and beating his man twice before driving powerfully home.

  1. Nice to see that, I hope Danny gets his chance.
    Off topic just watched West Ham v Southampton, and the Saints played very well.
    I never visited Upton Park but I am guessing that the die hard Hammers fans must think that the club has lost its heart and soul in the Olympic Stadium, I am so glad that the decision was made to redevelop Anfield, it’s our natural and spiritual home

    1. To be frank… I just hate west ham and bilic….
      wish we can play them now… I might sound arrogant but just hate them… they are my top 5 hated teams….
      1. Scum
      2. Scums
      3. Scummmssss
      4. Chelsea
      5. West ham….

      1. I really don’t understand that, I have no love for London teams, and maybe it’s an age thing, but West Ham are the closest thing in London to the Liverpool mentality.
        And they did win the World Cup for England in 1966, allegedly!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      2. Yeah I think that’s harsh. Their fans are quite rough and ready. But generally they are knowledgble about football and get behind their team. I don’t think you can ask for more

    2. Definitely, I live in West Ham country and that’s the feeling. The great thing about the Boleyn Ground was that it was small dirty and cramped. But the atmosphere it created was brilliant and intimidating for opposition teams.

      Fans just think the new London astadium is corporate and shite. They are so bored they’ve taken to fighting each other lol.

      Anfield looks superb with the new stand

  2. I’m waiting for Ojo to come back. Will be very useful in cup games and can give mane rest.

    Really gutted he got injured. Boy is a winger version of Origi. Pace, strength. He based more assist than hazard last season with just handful of games.

  3. Well done Danny boy…. u will get ur chances soon… soon…very soon… keep the hardwork.. and stay away from SNAPCHAT

  4. I don’t know why more people don’t attend these games there are pretty good players on show and a good way to see Liverpool players if you can’t get to anfield

  5. With Origi outta form, we might soon see Ings replacing him on the bench..Or at least that’s what I hope to see! :)..Why isn’t Origi played in the U-23’s to improve is touch & pace though? Looks as if he could use some help!

    1. He is not outta form, just lacks the rhythm and on top of that firmino is killing it.

      After a long time we have strikers in Origi, DS, firmino and ings who guarantee goals.

    1. Hey Joe. There is this guy “Stan Dinaround”. He seems to have fallen off the earth there? You know anything?
