Belgium international Divock Origi has expressed his delight after he made the match-winning contribution during the recent Merseyside derby against Everton. The Reds appeared on course to settle for a third-straight goalless game against the Toffees in the Premier League but they managed to find the breakthrough in the dying stages following a mistake from goalkeeper Jordan Pickford which Origi capitalised upon.
Speaking after the game, Origi was delighted with his late impact for the Reds despite being out of contention during the first half of the current campaign, he told the club’s official website: “It’s unbelievable. Derbies are always special, I’ve played in a couple of them and I’ve scored in a couple of them but this one was the most crucial one, so it is very, very special for me.I had the first chance and it was Virg, so I knew there was an open ball. Then I just played on my instinct, I was so hungry to help the team and give whatever I could. I had a good action before down the side but I wanted to be in [the box]. Thank God, it came in front of me.”
