Don’t sleep on Danny Ings in the race for the Premier League’s Golden Boot.
We’d all have to call it the Gold-Ings boot, though, wouldn’t we?
Saints young phenom Will Smallbone spotted Ings’ run inside the heart of Watford’s defense, cutting past a defender before drilling a low bounding shot on goal.
The shot was so well-placed, leaving Watford keeper Ben Foster at a loss, and moves Ings to 17 league goals. He’s scored 24 of his 38 Premier League goals in a Southampton shirt.
The total is level with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, two behind current leader Jamie Vardy of Leicester City.
Saints still have Man City, Everton, Manchester United, Brighton, Bournemouth, and Sheffield United on the docket as Ings chases goal-scoring immortality.
