Ings tested positive for COVID-19 after the Liverpool match

If he returns a negative test then Ings, who scored the only goal against the Reds inside two minutes and went off late on, could re-join training on Friday but would likely remain a major doubt for the Leicester game.

“We have had one positive test since the Liverpool game, Danny Ings is out, he has been ten days now in self-isolation,” Hasenhuttl said.

“That meant in this game (Liverpool) he was also maybe contagious, I think it is 48 hours before you can be before you have a positive test.

“We have had no further positive tests so far, that means our protocols (which) we are sticking to and our guidelines that we really follow are very disciplined.”

Hasenhuttl feels if clubs follow to the stringent regulations, then there should be no dampening down of goal celebrations.

“When you stick to the guidelines you can also work, as we do everyday together, celebrate together like we did after the Liverpool game and I think this is enough,” the Southampton boss said.

“You never know, but this showed me that when you stick to the protocols you have to control the risk.

“There is a reason why the Premier League decided to let us play football, this is what we are doing.

“For me, part of football is the duels, with the players playing together, and part of football is celebrating when you score a goal.

“I think the protocols and experiences we made so far shows that it works.”

Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy has now ended his period of isolation after a positive COVID-19 test and is available for Saturday’s 8pm kick-off at the King Power Stadium, along with forward Che Adams, who has recovered from concussion.
