Ralph Hasenhüttl gave an update on Danny Ings after Southampton's victory at Sheffield United, saying that he expects the striker could face a few weeks on the sidelines.

Saints have had some brutal luck with injuries this season, so there was perhaps something fitting about the fact that it was the 13th minute in which Ings was forced off at Bramall Lane, with what Hasenhüttl explained was a muscle injury.

"I think it was again a muscle problem, but it doesn't look good to be honest," he said.

"I don’t know when we will have him. Muscle injuries we are normally waiting for a minimum of four weeks I think, so we will have a look.

"It’s a little bit fitting to the history we’ve had in these past weeks. It’s horrible this season, we have so many problems and as soon as players are coming back others are injured again.

"We lost Ori and now we lose Ings again and these are all very important players for us, but even more important is that a player like Nathan Tella did a good job today. He was very strong and that gives me hope for the future."
