Ings scores again, earns Southampton first win of EPL

BURNLEY, England (AP) — Danny Ings earned Southampton its first points of the season by scoring the only goal in a win over former club Burnley in the English Premier League on Saturday.

The England striker, who finished one goal behind Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy’s 23 last season, made it three in three games for the new campaign by netting in the fifth minute at Turf Moor.

Che Adams ran onto a pass down the right channel and cut the ball back for Ings to bundle in a finish from 10 meters (yards).

After finishing last season strong, Southampton has underwhelmed by losing to Crystal Palace and Tottenham and also to second-tier Brentford in the English League Cup so far.

Burnley has lost both of its games in the league, to Leicester and now Southampton.
