Southampton striker to miss up to six weeks Empty Southampton striker to miss up to six weeks

Southampton striker Danny Ings could be out for up to six weeks as he requires minor surgery on a knee injury.

Ings, 28, was substituted in the 85th minute of their 4-3 Premier League win at Aston Villa on Sunday following a challenge with Trezeguet.

Saints said the initial results of a scan on the England international's left knee were "favourable" on Monday.

But boss Ralph Hasenhuttl said on Wednesday that "it looks like he is out for four to six weeks."

The Austrian added: "He'll have a small surgery on Thursday morning. It could be worse, but he'll be out and it's not good news for us."

Hasenhuttl also said he was not happy by some of the challenges in the Villa match.

"The last game was a tough one, sometimes beyond the edge in terms of what is OK for me," he said.

"A few brutal tackles that were tough to get a handle on and we have paid a high price for that."

Ings scored 22 goals last season, one behind Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy, and has five in seven games so far this term, including Saints' fourth against Villa.
