​Southampton striker Ings reveals wager with ex-Liverpool teammate Salah

Danny Ings has revealed he made a bet with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah on who will score more Premier League goals this season.

Southampton's attacker has found the net two times since his return to St Mary's this summer – the same efficiency the Egyptian from his old club has showed so far in the campaign.

"[We've got] a little one. Mo is Mo. One of the best players in the world," Ings said. "It was more of a bit of banter between us. Mo's a good friend of mine. Everything he gets he deserves.

"There's not many more humble players in football. It's a bit of a laugh. Hopefully, we'll both score plenty of goals this season.

"Can I beat him? It would be incredible wouldn't it? I'm just working every day to improve. I've missed a lot of football."

Salah was more than impressive in his first season with the Reds, scoring 44 times in all competitions.
