Rejoice, Liverpool fans… Balotelli replacement on fire

Liverpool’s strike situation has been a bit of an embarrassment so far this season. Daniel Sturridge has missed half the campaign with his spaghetti legs, Rickie Lambert cannot move, Mario Balotelli is more machine gun than sniper rifle and Fabio Borini… well, he’s barely even featured!

But do not fear Liverpool fans, as you have a hot-shot coming back this summer, and he should be confident at long last. Belgian youngster Divock Origi is currently on loan at Lille – who he signed from before being shipped back – yet his season has been, erm… shocking.

That was until today, when he ended his 1277-minute goal drought with a hat-trick! The starlet netted all three – one from the spot – in expert fashion, and below is a lovely little video of his first.

Better get packing then, Mario!
