Danny Ings scores for second successive match as Liverpool's PL2 side beat Leicester, while Southampton go second

Danny Ings scored his second goal in as many Premier League 2 Division 1 appearances as Liverpool beat Leicester City 4-0 in front of first-team manager Jurgen Klopp.

Ings followed his opening-day strike against Southampton with a third-minute effort to set up the four-goal win over Leicester, less than 24 hours after the senior team’s 4-1 win over the same opposition.

Ben Woodburn, captain Harry Wilson and Ovie Ejaria were also on target in the first half at Prenton Park to make it back-to-back victories for Liverpool but leave the Foxes bottom and still seeking their first point.
