Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp commended Divock Origi’s performance for Manchester United’s win against Everton on Wednesday, finishing with a 5-2 score.
Origi started playing in the Premier League in October, and scored a brilliant goal in the Meyerside derby game. So far, Liverpool has set a top record of straight wins of 32 matches.
“Outstanding. What a game he played. It was not only the goals but the goals were exceptional,” He said.
“The first one was a great attack in general – winning the ball, Adam [Lallana] passes to Sadio [Mane], Sadio sees the run, sees his movement and passes that ball in exactly the right moment, one touch and an open goal, great.
“In Germany when I was young one highlight of my week was always goal of the week and goal of the month. When they selected these, that [Origi’s second] would have been 100 per cent in contention. It was just a great first touch and then finishing it off like this.
“Apart from that, incredibly important runs for us, movements, used his speed, looked so natural. That was the most important thing. The understanding with Shaq [Xherdan Shaqiri] and Sadio was obviously really good. So it was a pretty impressive performance of Div.”
