Southampton's Danny Ings eases back into groove by sinking feeble Norwich

19 June 2020 07:00
For Norwich the restart is over before it truly began. Turned over by a Southampton side that did not have to play well to win convincingly the Canaries remain bottom of the table. While the six-point gap to safety may not yet have grown, any belief among Daniel Farke’s side that they might yet escape relegation must surely have taken a fateful blow.They had began the match just as you would expect a side that needs at least five wins from the nine games of the restart to stand a chance of staying up. They were on the front foot and in the opening two minutes forced a succession of free-kicks and corners. Emi Buendía takes every set piece for the Canaries and his delivery showed no signs of rustiness. Sadly the same could not be said for his teammates’ finishing, with Tom Trybull seeing his effort blocked in the box by Danny Ings no less, and Josip Drmic closed down too quickly by Jan Bednarek. That initial spell lasted for 15 minutes before Southampton began to exert themselves in midfield and close down the supply to Norwich’s forward four. The pace dropped and the visitors managed to get more of the possession too. Related: Norwich City 0-3 Southampton: Premier League – live! Continue readingreadfullarticle
