Danny Ings was denied an all-important equaliser by VAR as Southampton slumped to a 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday.


Ross Barkley, who is on loan from Chelsea, fired Villa into the lead at St Mary's before half-time.

Southampton thought they had snatched an equaliser deep into second-half injury time as Ings had the ball in the back of the net.

However, the 28-year-old Southampton forward was ruled offside by a tiny margin, with the Saints once again losing out on a VAR call in their favour.

Speaking after the 1-0 win, Cash admitted that 'luck was on their side' and called it a "fantastic result" for Villa.

The 23-year-old right-back told Sky Sports: "This is a tough place to come, but I felt we defended really well.

"A welcome three points. We had a lot of great characters everywhere.

"We watched them in the week, they are a fantastic team and move the ball really well, but this season we have been fantastic defensively so to come here and take a clean sheet is fantastic.

"Luck was on our side. A fantastic result, we can build on it."

When it came to the controversial VAR decision in the first half, Cash explained: "It is hard to defend with your hands behind your back -- sprinting around at full pace.

"I think it hit my quad first, the rules are a bit bad at the moment."
