The Premier League action kicks-off on a Friday evening this weekend, with Southampton and Leicester City facing off in what should be a pretty decent game.

The Saints have not had as good a start as Leicester this year, but will pose a considerable threat with both sides capable of scoring goals.

Indeed, whilst the Foxes possess Jamie Vardy and the likes of James Maddison in behind, Southampton have one of the form men in the league right now; Danny Ings.

The former Liverpool striker has managed to oust Che Adams from the side in recent weeks with a number of goals to his name, and Brendan Rodgers is all too aware of the threat he is going to pose.

Quoted by the Leicester Mercury, he said:

“He’s a very good player, Danny. I signed him for Liverpool so I know his qualities.

“He wants to run in behind and he’s a very good finisher when he gets in. He wants to score and he scores different types of goals. He will be a threat for them on Friday.”

Ings suffered with injury issues under Rodgers and then Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, but it was never doubted that he could finish when he was fit.

He’s finding form at the Saints, and Rodgers will know he needs a plan to try and stop him from scoring.
