Liverpool fans furious with Divock Origi’s display

After suffering a disappointing 4-0 defeat to Manchester City last time out, Liverpool no doubt wanted to put things right as they played their first game at Anfield following their crowning as Premier League champions.

But for much of their clash against Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon, the Reds just didn’t look at all like their normal selves, and by the end of the 90 minutes, had mustered just six shots on goal.

Jurgen Klopp’s side did manage to secure a 2-0 win, but it’s fair to say some Liverpool fans weren’t all too impressed with a few of the players’ performances, including that of Divock Origi.

Is Divock Origi good enough for Liverpool?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Belgian had a forgettable outing starting in place of Roberto Firmino. As per Sofascore, in the 60 minutes that he was on the pitch, managed no shots on goal, no dribbles, no key passes, and must 13 total passes.

And after seeing his display, Liverpool fans flooded to Twitter to share their reactions.

One Liverpool fan took particular aim at Origi’s lack of runs in behind the Villa defence, describing him as a “statue”.

Another couple of Liverpool fans felt enough is enough and urged the club to sell him this summer.

The big question for Klopp is whether Origi is good enough to lead the line in Firmino’s absence.

WHO IS THE PLAYER?

The Belgian has of course cemented his legacy as somewhat of a Liverpool icon for his big goals in Champions League games in particular, but with other teams trying to close the gap for next season, does he represent the kind of quality to be the number two striker at Anfield.

It’s a conundrum Klopp will have to consider this summer.
