Southampton striker Danny Ings will undergo a scan on his knee tomorrow after being substituted off late in the Premier League victory over Aston Villa on Sunday.

Ings scored the Saints fourth of the day in the 4-3 win, but was taken off with just five minutes remaining after a challenge from Villa's Ahmed El Mohamady which appeared to cause the striker pain in his knee.

Ings, who has suffered serious knee injuries before during his time at Liverpool, will now undergo a scan to assess the extent of the damage that forced him off the pitch.

Speaking after the game. as quoted by the Athletic's Dan Sheldon on Twitter, manager Ralph Hasenhuttl hinted it could be a bad injury for the England striker.

"It didn’t look good, to be honest," Hasenhuttl is quoted as saying. "I hope it’s not too bad. He was immediately shouting, ‘my knee, my knee’. He will have a scan tomorrow."
