With just two weeks until the beginning of the new Premier League season, Jurgen Klopp will have been desperate to see his Liverpool players hit some kind of form, with the new campaign going to be as competitive and challenging as ever.

The German boss hasn't invaded the transfer market like some Reds fans had hoped; with a failed attempt to land Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze - who has since made a return to Borussia Dortmund. 

However, Klopp has insisted he is keen to work with and develop the talent already at his disposal, and Divock Origi is definitely one of those that the former Dortmund boss wants to help reach his full potential.

And the 21-year-old Belgium international helped to prove why, perhaps, Klopp is cutting a calm figure, when asked about his movements in the transfer market.

A "fantastic" goal from the young striker gave helped Liverpool to a 2-0 win under the lights of the Levi’s Stadium, against AC Milan. Origi cooly collected Alberto Moreno's long pass forward, before cutting inside his marker to finish low into the far corner.

It was a touch of class from the striker, who had only been introduced at half time, and he will be hoping to make a big impact on Merseyside this season, having netted 10 goals in all competitions for Liverpool, last campaign.

And Liverpool fans enjoyed the impact Origi made following his introduction at the start of the second half, tweeting their pleasure with his performance.

But Daniel Sturridge was the frontman who started the match, and he, too, showed signs of good form, having seen his curling shot stopped by the legs of Luca Antonelli. And the hope at Anfield is that both strikers can hit their best form before their tough opening-day fixture away to Arsenal.

Roberto Firmino netted Liverpool's other goal, as they returned to winning ways after a 1-0 defeat during the week, to Antonio Conte's Chelsea. While Sadio Mane produced signs of why Klopp spent £34 million to bring him to Liverpool this summer.
