Divock Origi was one of the best players on the pitch last night as we beat Spurs 2-1 in the League Cup fourth round.
The result sees us join Arsenal, Hull City, and Leeds United in the quarter-finals, with three of West Ham, Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City, Southampton, and Sunderland set to join us there.
And after losing a semi-final to Chelsea in 2015 and the final to Man City last season, young Belgian striker Divock Origi is determined to go one better this time around.
“We’re here and we want to go until the end,” the Belgian striker said. “It won’t be easy, but we showed a lot of character,” he said (Echo).
“We just have to play with a big heart every time and I’m sure that we have the quality to go until the end.”
Origi was a lot of people’s man of the match in the aftermath of the win – only Daniel Sturridge consistently picked up a higher score in the various online polls and player rating articles.
He has struggled for his fitness at times in the season so far and is yet to start a league match, though he has come on as a sub on seven different occasions.
