Kenyan born Belgian international Divock Origi came off the bench to score a stoppage-time winner as Liverpool beat Wolves 1-0 in an English Premier League fixture at Molineux on Saturday, December 4th, 2021.
The second-half substitute latched on to a Mohamed Salah pass, smashing the ball into the bottom corner to break the deadlock and sink a spirited Wolves side.
Origi’s latest strike was his 10th as a substitute in the Premier League – no player has scored more from the bench for the Reds in the competition.
Origi’s goal sparked wild celebrations from the visitors, while Klopp ran straight to the centre circle to hug the striker after the full-time whistle. It was some way for the Belgian, 26, to mark a curious milestone – his 100th appearance as a Liverpool substitute.
“He’s such a great player, a great guy,” an ecstatic Klopp told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“Coming on and contributing like he did today, scoring that goal – outstanding. I’m really, really happy for him.”
Origi has become a fans’ favourite at Anfield, having already racked up an impressive portfolio of late goals for the Reds.
