Danny Ings scoresDanny Ings (20) is just the second player to score 20 top-flight goals for Saints at St Mary's, after James Beattie (28)

Danny Ings scored twice as Southampton fought back to beat Crystal Palace in an entertaining Premier League affair.

Ings, returning from a hamstring injury, steered a low effort into the bottom corner to level after Christian Benteke had driven in an early opener for the visitors.

And the hosts, who were thankful for goalkeeper Fraser Forster's penalty save from Luka Milivojevic, had the better of a seesaw contest after the break.

Che Adams put them ahead with a neat close-range finish from Stuart Armstrong's corner and Ings latched on to a pass from his strike partner to round off the scoring.

Saints' first win in five games moves them up to 14th in the table, with Palace in 13th, a point above them.
