EPL Matchday 32: Ings brace griefs vulnerable Watford; Watford 1 -3 Southampton
Watford 16th on 28 points, one point clear of the bottom three.
Danny Ings is after the Premier League golden boot as he took his tally to 18, one short of Vardy’s 19 on Sunday.
The Englishman scored twice as Southampton sealed a 3-1 victory at Vicarage Road to increase Watford's relegation worries. He is the first Southampton player to reach double figures (10) for goals away from home in a single Premier League season since Matt Le Tissier in 1993/94 (12).
The Saints on Thursday lost against Arsenal at St. Mary’s Stadium by 2-0 and redeemed their loss after the former Burnley and Liverpool forward put his side in front on 16 minutes, firing into the bottom-right corner from 20 yards.
Ings then made the score 2-0 on 70 minutes, intercepting Ben Foster's throw before finishing low past the Watford goalkeeper.
Jan Bednarek's own goal with 11 minutes remaining gave Watford hope of a comeback but that was dashed three minutes later when James Ward-Prowse curled in a superb free-kick.
Southampton's eighth away victory of the season moves them to 13th place on 40 points. The victory is the most they’ve ever won away from home in a top-flight campaign.
A run of four matches without a win leaves Watford 16th on 28 points, one point clear of the bottom three.
