Danny Ings has scored 27 Premier League goals for Southampton since making his debut for the club - 15 more than any other Saints player in this period Brighton need a point from their last two games to stay in the Premier League after Danny Ings' 20th league goal of the season denied them victory at Southampton. Ings is the first Saints player to score 20 goals in a Premier League season since James Beattie in 2002-03. The former Liverpool forward was once again outstanding in attack for the home side, having an effort rightly ruled out for offside in the first half and cracking a shot against the post before he eventually did score. His goal also ensured that Southampton did not set a new club record of 11 home defeats in a Premier League season. Ings had a match-high five shots and always looked a threat, as well as twice going close to creating a goal for substitute Che Adams in a second half dominated by Southampton.
The Saints' poor home form remains somewhat of a mystery - they are the only club in the division to earn more points on the road - but they are unbeaten in five games now and are ending the season strongly. Southampton had 15 efforts in the second half, with Brighton goalkeeper Ryan making one sensational save in particular when he turned Jannik Vestergaard's 25-yard strike against the crossbar. Centre-backs Lewis Dunk, Adam Webster and Dan Burn also made six blocks and seven interceptions between them as Brighton hung on at times. 44 Connolly Referee: Andre Marriner Match Stats Live Text Post update Match ends, Southampton 1, Brighton and Hove Albion 1.
