Major fitness boost for Liverpool as 25-year-old in line to feature in cup clash - report

By Aramide Oladipo

Liverpool striker Danny Ings could make his first competitive appearance of the season against Leicester City in the midweek Carabao Cup clash, according to a report.

The Liverpool Echo reports that the 25-year-old has been involved in the training sessions with the first-team over the past week and he could be named in the squad to travel to the King Power Stadium on Tuesday evening.

The report claims that the striker is likely to be involved with first-team on Tuesday if he is not selected for the Under-23 squad who face West Ham United on Monday night.

This will be a huge boost for the Merseyside club who have lacked a cutting edge in front of goal in the last two matches, stumbling to home draws against Sevilla and Burnley.

Ings has already featured in four matches for the reserve team, notching up his only goal in the 2-0 win over Swansea City.

The Englishman suffered a serious knee injury last season and he has not featured for the Reds in the Premier League since the final day of the 2015-16 campaign.

The striker has suffered a series of bad injuries since securing a permanent move to Anfield two years ago from Burnley and he has only made 11 appearances for the club.
