One of the highlights of the season so far is the acquisition of Danny Ings from Southampton.
The 29 year-old striker has registered 2 goals and 1 assist in his opening 3 games.
Off the ball, he’s averaging 16.07 pressures a game filling the void vacated by the injured Ollie Watkins, who set the tone of our high press last season.
I’m excited and intrigued to see if both Ings and Watkins can fit into a system together – we witnessed a brief cameo against Brentford with Watkins finding more space and twice forcing the keeper into a save during the closing stages, couple that up with the potential goal-scoring service from Bailey and Traore, once both return to fitness, and our attack could be very potent indeed!
Ings averaged a player ratings score of 7.33 for August closely followed by Ezri Konsa who’s form has picked up where he left off last season.
Villans, what have we made of Ings’ start to life in Claret and Blue?
We welcome all Villa fans to get involved in our player ratings feature, so if you’d like to join us for a game drop a comment at the bottom of this article or message me on Twitter – Ryan Mckeown.
