Adam Lallana highlights Danny Ings injury as “huge blow” to Liverpool’s 2016/17 campaign


 20 May 2017

Adam Lallana believes Danny Ings‘ season-ending knee injury was a “huge blow” to Liverpool’s chances in 2016/17, with the Reds sapped of options.

Ings spent the majority of the 2015/16 campaign on the sidelines after rupturing his ACL shortly after Jurgen Klopp arrived as manager at Anfield.

After making an early recovery to return to the field at the end of last season away to West Brom, Ings took time to work back to full fitness.

But this was derailed by another knee injury, having made just two first-team appearances for the Reds this term, with the striker ruled out in November.

Lallana believes Ings’ bad luck has seen Liverpool suffer this season, with Klopp lacking a versatile option in attack.

“Certain injuries hurt us. Missing Danny Ings this season was a huge blow,” he told the Liverpool Echo.

“There were times early on in the season when he’d been training brilliantly and didn’t make the bench.

“Then around the same time as he got his injury, a few others got hurt which would have opened the door for him.

“There have been a number of games this season where you think: ‘If only we had Danny Ings fit and available, running the channels, busting a gut and getting his goals.’
