DANNY Ings will feel at home during Storm Dennis - as he used to play for Burnley!

Ralph Hasenhuttl joked that his top scorer will enjoy today's conditions as he takes on a former club for the second time in as many Premier League matches.

Seventeen-goal Ings is enjoying his best-ever season in the Premier League and his most prolific at any level since scoring 26 as Burnley were promoted from the Championship in 2013/14.

Ings, who was unfortunate not to win a penalty on his return to Liverpool a fortnight ago, spent four seasons at Turf Moor after leaving Bournemouth in 2011.

“Danny tells me sometimes about Burnley – especially how cold and windy it was!” smiled Hasenhuttl.

“He’s a guy who always trains in just a shirt. I sometimes ask if it is too cold and he says, no – not if you’ve trained in Burnley!

“It’s a sign that Danny can handle every club and is immediately a player loved by fans.”

With three draws and three defeats from their last six Premier League matches against Burnley, Saints are aiming for their first win against the Clarets since beating Sean Dyche’s side 3-1 at St Mary’s in October 2016.

Hasenhuttl was denied a victory at Turf Moor by Ashley Barnes’ last-minute penalty last February, but has been impressed by Dyche’s team during his 14 months in the Premier League.

“I didn’t really know of him before, but we’ve played each other twice and I think it’s a typical example of no matter how you want to play, if you’re successful it’s fantastic,” he said.

“The way he formed a team and club, it’s a perfect example of how clear you have to go your way to be successful.

“It’s not the opponent you want to play against.”
