After the match, Klopp told reporters - per BBC Sport - that he now understands the fuss surrounding Sturridge.

Origi, though, was the Man of the Match. The much-maligned Belgian, 20, was handed a perfect 10 rating by the Liverpool Echo. The Reds will now face Stoke City over two legs in the semi-finals.
