Liverpool fans compare Divock Origi to Didier Drogba after Stoke win

Published 2 Comments

Liverpool beat Stoke City 4-1 thanks to an inspired second-half performance from Divock Origi.

The Belgian was brought on at half-time and proceeded to score a brace to secure three important points.

Jurgen Klopp’s side leapfrogged their opponents into eighth place, keeping alive their hopes of finishing in a European berth.

Alberto Moreno opened the scoring with a sumptuous strike in the eighth minute before Bojan’s 22nd-minute equaliser appeared to suggest Liverpool were in for a tight encounter.

But Daniel Sturridge restored the lead before Origi took over.

The Belgian came on at half-time for Sheyi Ojo and within five minutes found the scoresheet.

Origi scored against Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League on Thursday and was at it again today, heading home James Milner’s pinpoint cross.

His second goal was a little more fortuitous - his cross bounced past Stoke’s defence and into the net - but three goals in four days has Liverpool fans purring over their £10 million man.

Origi's goals

The 20-year-old has been limited to five Premier League starts this season but Klopp might be wondering what could have been had he afforded Origi more chances.

He remains raw but has the potential to develop into a fine forward under Klopp’s tutelage.

After the win, Liverpool fans were full of praise for the former Lille man.

While Origi took 20 minutes to score twice, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard hasn’t scored a league goal in 1,787 minutes.

And fans were quick to mock the Belgian winger’s miserable season.
