Belgian striker Divock Origi has eyes on first team football at Liverpool, and has suggested that he wants to give boss Jurgen Klopp something to think about.
Div made his sixth start of the season against Genk in his homeland in the week, and he helped the Reds garner another three points which points us within touching distance of the Champions League knockout rounds.
When asked if winning in Europe helps tick over the form in the domestic competitions, Origi agreed and called the fixture against Manchester City a “big, big game.”
“It is good to keep on going, keep the flow going and I think this weekend is going to be a big, big game. We have already played a couple of times against each other so we are all looking forward to it,” he’s quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo.
“We know we still have some important games but it was crucial for us to win and everyone knew it so we are very happy we did it.
“Genk fought well. Tactically as well, they adapted well so they fought hard, they were brave and we just had to be brave as well and play and I think with the experience we have helped us as well.”
The Belgian does have eyes on more regular football, however, as he suggests that he’s feeling stronger every game, but does admit that his finishing is lacking.
“I think personally I am just going game by game in terms of assessing,” said Origi. “I am just progressing, feeling stronger game by game and trying to help the team more and more.
“I am finding my ways, finding the routines, how the guys play and I think you can tell on the pitch as well I am growing, trying to be more efficient in the last quarter which is coming slowly but steadily.
“I always see it as being the best I can be and I think the fact we have so much quality, I loved it because that is what helped us win the Champions League.
“That is going to help us be successful and if everyone is at their best, then the choice is nothing new, it is on the coach and we all try to make the choice as difficult as possible for the coach.“
