Ahmed Hegazi sneakily punches Danny Ings in the ribs while Liverpool striker is on the ground… and referee gives free-kick against Reds

Written by Mohammed Azeez

Ahmed Hegazi punched Danny Ings in the ribs during Liverpool’s clash with West Brom but the defender escaped sanction and the Baggies were even given a free-kick for the ugly tangle.

The duo collided in the air and fell on the ground. With Hegazi on his haunches above the striker, he then dug in a sly punch.

Ings was understandably furious and then refused to be helped up by the Egyptian who attempted to smooth over his actions.

The referee Stuart Attwell missed the incident and despite all of Ings’ protestations he was the one penalised for the challenge.

Attwell attempted to calm Ings down as the forward attempted to tell him what had happened but his pleas fell on deaf ears.

Hegazi was treading a fine line and the West Brom team set out with a hugely physical approach at the Hawthorns.

Though Ings wasn’t hurt by Hegazi’s punch the defender would have been sent off if he’d have been spotted.

Hegazi later struck out at compatriot Mo Salah with a reckless swing of his arm as he jumped for a header.

Salah clutched his face in pain but once again Hegazi escaped punishment as tensions threatened to boil over. Both Ings and Salah were substituted with Liverpool ahead before the Baggies stormed back from two goals down.
