Massive Ings blow for Reds

It is a massive blow for the player who sat out the majority of last season with a cruciate knee injury and was still in the process of easing himself back into Jurgen Klopp's first-team plans.

The new injury is said to be a serious cartilage problem in his right knee - last season's was a cruciate injury to his left knee - and he has already headed off to London to see the same specialist who operated on Danny Welbeck, ahead of an operation.

The projected recovery time is seven months which has come as a devastating blow to Ings, his manager and Anfield team-mates.
