Against Crystal Palace on Saturday, Liverpool will be looking to consolidate their place at the top of the Premier League.
They currently lead the way by eight points, with Leicester City and Chelsea currently on 26 points to their 34. Manchester City, the current back-to-back champions, are a further point back, on 25. After 30 years without a title victory, Jurgen Klopp and co could make history this year.
This weekend, though, they will be without Mohamed Salah, Sky Sports say. The Egypt international has been struggling with an ankle problem ever since that tackle from Leicester City’s Hamza Choudhury. He was named in the Pharaohs’ squad for their latest fixtures, but he withdrew.
The 27-year-old’s absence means that someone else will have to come in. And it appears that many Liverpool fans are backing the Belgium international to take his place.
They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Origi all day. Adds something different

Has to be Origi! he’s been playing well plus Ox is not really a winger and Shaq isn’t ready

Ox is terrible on the wings, Origi on the right please

Origi, and every chance Shaq makes an appearance late in the game

Origi can do a job still. Especially if Salah is out. Origi is just a natural goal/scorer init. I like Origi though. He offers something different. #LFC

Milner & Origi In for Salah & Robertson then at the weekend

Palace away is hard as it is.
Now Salah and Robbo are not fit
