Divock Origi makes optimistic prediction about Liverpool’s future

The Liverpool striker believes the Merseyside outfit's future is bright after Tuesday's 2-0 win against Leeds

Divock Origi believes Liverpool have a bright future after their 2-0 win against Leeds in the EFL Cup on Tuesday night.

The Reds eased into a second-half lead thanks to the Belgium international’s powerful finish to break the deadlock at Anfield.

Ben Woodburn became Liverpool’s youngest-ever goal-scorer after the 17-year-old extended the home side’s lead late in the cup clash.

The Merseyside outfit have endured a tough week after Philippe Coutinho suffered a serious ankle injury during Liverpool’s 2-0 win against Sunderland.

Origi helped the Reds get over the line against the Black Cats after his clinical finish in the 75th minute of the Premier League clash on Merseyside on Saturday.

The former Lille man congratulated Woodburn on Twitter before talking up the 18-time English champions’ promising future.

Liverpool are in second place in the Premier League table and a point behind leaders Chelsea.
