    Is tonight the Origi became not just an option but a proper challenger to Roberto Firmino's spot?

    Thought he led the line brilliantly tonight; showed strength, won free kicks, linked up well, bagged goals.

    He'll never be as skillful as Firmino, or link up as well, but he provides that threat in behind and makes the runs which Bobby doesn't even consider. Play Divock in the same amount of games as Firmino and he would produce more goals, IMO.

    His improvement has been hard to explain, but I think you have to credit Henry for some of it. The runs in behind, the first touch, the composure under pressure. Henry himself could have scored them goals tonight and I don't think that's its just a coincidence he got a few years of coaching him at Belgium.

    His turnaround is one of the most dramatic in football and we're going to continue reaping the rewards.

    Yep,  Just what the Dr ordered, somebody to step up and challenge for one of the front spots.

    "In time you will know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right, yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Divock still arrives."

    It was a really good performance and yeah, hopefully will put a bit more pressure on the other guys.

    That's way over the top though.

    Origi was amazing tonight. It was a virtually perfect forward display. Very exciting performance.

    I love this guy!

    As Anfield celebrates, Divock Origi speaks. “It’s a special game, and as a team we enjoyed it. We showed that we really enjoy to play for Liverpool. The manager showed us trust, and so it was important to get the three points. I think my first goal was important to break the game open, but the second one, technically, I enjoyed that one! We used the space well. We had wonderful service. We have a great team, and we have to be at our best. We try to push each other and enjoy. I’m grateful to be here.”

    No way man. Mane was amazing. Shaq was superb. He was virtually perfect. That control and goal tonight was just extraordinary. Sublime.

    That was his best performance in red for me.

    Considering the opposition, the occasion, the rotation and pressure to repay Klopps faith in him.

    Outstanding from the first minute.

    The big issue for Origi is, can he consistently produce this display of does he need space in behind like he got in buckets tonight.

    Most team will sit deep and that’s where Firmino probably outshines him.

    But it’s superb to see with such big fixtures coming up that he’s getting back to the level he was at pre the Everton ankle injury a few years ago.

    Ha. Just few days ago we were going on about Salah and how it will be the end of the world for us soon.

    You're not allowed to say that in the devastating Divock thread. It's perverse.

    I am just a primitiv gentile from the high north. Perverse is my default state of mind.
