Liverpool were a matter of inches away from ending the first-half with a goal, after Thiago Alcantara’s spectacular pass found Divock Origi at the near post.
The Belgian forward stretched to get a foot on the ball but it proved to be at too awkward an angle for him to convert past Lukasz Fabianski.
It was a remarkable bit of vision from the classy Spaniard, and one of the main reasons Jurgen Klopp was more than happy to snap him up in the summer.
If he keeps setting up these kinds of chances for his teammates, we’d be surprised if the scoreline remains level at the end of proceedings.
