Southampton manager Mark Hughes has questioned why Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was not sent off during Saturday's league game at Goodison Park.
"Their keeper should have been sent off for the challenge on Danny," he told reporters at his post-match presser. "They had a man sent off for less last week.
"You saw the state of Ings' shirt. He had five welts on his back. Clearly there is contact. The referee was there. The linesman has a lot of experience. My assistant has been in to see the referee. We will look back on it, I didn't feel he needed to follow through."
Southampton had five players booked all afternoon, while no Everton players were cautioned.
