This term, Roberto Firmino has started 21 more games than Divock Origi in the Premier League and 20 more in all competitions, yet the pair are both on 10 goals for the campaign…
While the Brazilian is a brilliant presser who’s vital to the way we play, he’s a relatively poor goalscorer by elite standards.
Origi has been criticised plenty this term, but the youngster is 21-years-old and is the joint second top goalscorer behind Sadio Mane in all competitions.
He’s started 14 matches, yet only Mane has bagged more…
Origi has notched in his past two games and put in the kind of confident display that gives us huge hope for the future.
He scores goals in droves when he’s confident and in the team, and with Mane out, it’s crucial Origi maintains his current level. For an attacker who’s only 21 to have reached double figures in both his seasons as he club is mighty impressive.
10 – Divock Origi has scored 10 goals in all comps for Liverpool this season. Only Sadio Mane (13) has scored more for the club. Impact.
