Liverpool: Divock Origi deserves a run in the starting XI

Liverpool: Divock Origi deserves a run in the starting XI - Liverpool

It was a night that will never be forgotten about in not just the history of Liverpool, but European football as a whole.

Heading into the game without Mohamed Salah or Roberto Firmino, nobody was giving Liverpool a chance of overturning a 3-0 deficit against the Champions League favourites. The only people who believed was Jurgen Klopp and his band of players, and sure enough, they made history.

If you were to say before the match that Divock Origi would be the star of the show and be the one to send Liverpool into their second consecutive Champions League final, everybody would have laughed at you, but as the Belgian striker has done time and time again this season, he proved the doubters wrong.

His second goal, and the goal that takes Liverpool to Madrid, will go down in history as one of the most incredible moments in the history of the competition, and Origi’s performance was enough to show Jurgen Klopp that there is a reason to keep the striker at the club for a bit longer.

Origi stepped into Firmino’s shoes excellently, providing the goals the Brazilian has been criticised for not producing enough of this season and linking the play between him and the wingers in the attack.

Klopp should keep Origi at Liverpool for the performance against Barcelona alone, and if the striker continues to perform, Firmino could find himself missing out on first-team football to a striker that wrote his name into club folklore.

Liverpool fans, should Origi have a run in the starting XI next season? Let us know!
