Divock Origi Reveals Advice Jürgen Klopp Gave Him Before He Came On To Grab Winner

Divock Origi harnessed his inner Divock Origi to score yet another vital goal for Liverpool.

The Belgium international has become a real cult hero at Anfield, having scored a number of crucial goals for the Reds despite getting limited game-time.

His important strikes include the goal that assured Liverpool of the 2019 Champions League trophy in the final against Tottenham, a brace as the side overturned a 3-0 deficit to win the second leg on that run the trophy against Barcelona, and a stoppage-time winner against Everton in late 2018.

Away to Wolves today, he scored another injury-time winner that helped Liverpool climb above Chelsea into second in the table. Manchester City may have beaten Watford comfortably, but Chelsea's defeat to London rivals West Ham at the Olympic Stadium have taken them from top down to third in a matter of hours.

But Liverpool did not have similar issues - although they left things late at Molineux. Incredible late. Mohamed Salah picked up yet another assist as Origi was on hand to pierce Wolves hearts in the 95th minute. It was typically opportunistic from one of Jürgen Klopp's favourite players.

KIopp was full of praise for Liverpool's match-winner in his post-match press conference. "Divock Origi is an incredible football player and he's great in these moments," said the Liverpool manager. "These kinds of goals, we see plenty of times."

"Winning in the 95-minute is great, but when Div scores the goal, it makes it even better to be honest."

Origi reportedly took one journalist after the match that Klopp's advise to him before he came on had simply been to: "Go out and be Divock." It seems he did that perfectly.

Liverpool have now won their last four Premier League matches with an aggregated scoreline of 13-1.

That was Origi's 39th goal for Liverpool, and the Reds may look back at it as one of the most important come the end of the season. They are next in action on Tuesday when they travel to face AC Milan in their final Champions League group-stage match. They are already assured of a top-place finish in their group.
