The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern still cannot believe just how they are at defending.
Indeed, their backline shows no signs of shoring up almost two years into Jurgen Klopp’s reign, much to the frustration of our resident Reds. So, it’s fair to say our local Liverpudlians could do with some cheering up.
Well, reports from the Daily Mail have at least put a smile on some of their faces. According to their report, striker Danny Ings is closing in on a return to first-team action after a two-year spell absolutely blighted by injury.
The one-cap England international has suffered two long-term knee injuries and was recently taken off in an U23 game against Manchester City, though that was only thought to have been a precaution.
Ings has now returned to training with the first-team ahead of their clash with Leicester City in the Carabao Cup and could even be involved, much to the delight of our Merseyside drinkers.
Though it’s not quite as to where Ings fits in anymore, having him back will obviously be a big boost.
The 25-year-old can provide a different option to the likes of Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge, especially in the busier schedule to come.
