Divock Origi took to Instagram to underline his desire to make a swift recovery from injury after the striker was forced off during Liverpool’s 1-0 win against Leicester City.

The Belgium international was substituted in the 38th minute of the Boxing Day clash with a suspected hamstring problem and was replaced by compatriot Christian Benteke.

The former Aston Villa striker made the breakthrough after half-time to seal close-fought victory for Liverpool after a three-game winless run in the Premier League.

Speaking at his post-match media conference, Jurgen Klopp ruled Origi out of the Merseyside’s clash against Sunderland at Stadium of Light in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

Origi wrote on the photo-sharing app: “Lord knows.. I’ll be back soon! My Godchild taking good care of me 👍🏾 Happy X-mass to everyone 🎁🎉”

The Reds are currently without Slovakia international Martin Skrtel due to a hamstring injury, whilst the Merseyside outfit are hoping to get Daniel Sturridge back on the pitch.
