Danny Ings has joined the club of Liverpool strikers who love scoring against Norwich City.
The 23-year-old bagged his first goal for the Reds since his summer arrival at Anfield this afternoon, controlling Alberto Moreno’s lofted pass and finishing calmly to give the hosts a second-half lead.
Ings’s maiden Liverpool goal came just three minutes after his introduction as a second-half substitute for Christian Benteke, who previously enjoyed himself against the Canaries.
The Belgian managed four goals in five Premier League encounters with Norwich while at Aston Villa, but that record pales in comparison to how prolific Luis Suarez was against the same opposition.
The controversial Uruguayan netted 12 goals in his six Reds appearances, including two hat-tricks, against the East Anglian outfit, who would have been delighted to see Suarez move on to Barcelona.
But they now have a new tormentor in England Under-21 international Ings – who has opened his Liverpool account at the fourth attempt – three of his appearances have come off the bench.
Alex Neil’s side responded to level the scores on 62 minutes as defender Russell Martin netted his third goal of the campaign, leaving Liverpool facing a fourth game in a row without victory.
