No goal and a yellow card for the Wolves man. 

29’

VAR Decision: Goal not awarded for Wolverhampton Wanderers [Raúl Jiménez] was confirmed

Højbjerg blazes over

Saints win possession high up the pitch, but after Ings fed in Højbjerg, the captain fired high and wide. 

24’

Wolves defend well

Ward-Prowse's low free-kick delivery from the right is hit first time by Ings, but Wolves twice get bodies in the way as Romeu's follow up is also stopped in its tracks. 

22’

The big lads up from the back

Ings wins a free-kick off of Boly out on the right, giving Yoshida, Bednarek and Vestergaard the chance to get forward.

Like a game of chess ⏳

4’

Ings stretches his legs...

The first attack of the afternoon from Saints, as Redmond sets Ings free down the left. After getting past Coady, his cross can't quite be collected by Ward-Prowse who'd burst into the box.

Ralph on @ingstagram10: “What I like from Danny is he’s always positive, always open minded and a very, very positive character for this team and I hope he continues this run.”🤞

12.15

Our game is always a mixture of high midfield and deep pressing, and this is an opponent that sits a little bit deeper, but you have to pay attention to the counter-attacks. It will be an interesting game for us.
