Liverpool made incredibly light work of their Champions League quarter-final tie with FC Porto, winning Wednesday night’s away leg by a 4-1 scoreline, but that hasn’t stopped Reds supporters from ripping into Divock Origi on social media.
It clearly wasn’t a great evening for the 6 foot 1 attacker, who was tasked with filling the almighty void of Roberto Firmino – one of the most important players in Jurgen Klopp’s system.
In fact, his attempt to do so only lasted until half-time, when the Brazilian was introduced from the bench at Origi’s expense following a somewhat underwhelming first 45 minutes from the Premier League title hopefuls despite being three goals ahead on aggregate.
As one Liverpool supporter on Twitter pointed out, there was a seismic difference between Liverpool’s performance when Origi was and wasn’t on the pitch, which perhaps explains why there has been such a backlash on social media against the 23-year-old.
Take a look below at what Liverpool fans are saying about Origi’s latest display…
Not knocking Origi.. hes dead honest but the difference in the two halves with & without him was ridiculous. That's where we strengthen in summer I think

Just baffled as to how and why Origi is still a Liverpool player

#LFC Polished 2nd half performance. So much better with Origi off the field. Hendo is un-dropable at present… so are our front 3, VVD, Fabinho & Allison.

Take that score line but Jesus lads, has anyone done less in 45 minutes of football than Origi just then? We’ve had the banger resurgence now can we just sell him to West Ham already.

If this is what Origi has to offer, how much should we sell him for ? #PORLIV

I would sincerely like Divok Origi to reflect on his game tonight.
