Poll Reaction: Ings set for double figures in debut Liverpool campaign


Danny Ings could fire enough goals to see Liverpool challenge once again for a top four finish.

That is the suggestion of the latest Ladbrokes News poll, which indicated that Ings will at least match the 11 goals he hit for Burnley this year during his debut Reds campaign.

With the Clarets striker all but confirmed as a Liverpool man for the new season we asked readers to vote on how many strikes the former Bournemouth player will notch and with 36 per cent of the votes 11-15 was the clear winner.

Just under a third of our voters (30 per cent) feel the 22-year-old will fare slightly worse and said six to 10 goals is a more realistic target but a quarter of those to get involved feel Ings has big things ahead of him.

According to 25 per cent of Ladbrokes News readers Ings will take to life at Anfield with ease and fire at least 15 goals for the Reds next season.

That meant that just nine per cent of our voters are expecting the England U21 international to struggle, with those voters expecting a return of five goals or less.

Ings is due at Anfield for a medical later this week and is expected to be unveiled as a Liverpool player shortly after.

The striker, who was on loan at non-league Dorchester Town just five years ago, was Burnley’s top scorer last season but will have to fight Daniel Sturridge, Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert, Divock Origi and a host of others for game time at Anfield.

However, if our poll is to be believed many of those players will have to make do with a supporting role as Ings picks up where he left off and helps himself to a shedload of Liverpool goals.
