Jurgen Klopp provides latest Liverpool injury update on Divock Origi ahead of Everton clash

The Liverpool manager confirms Divock Origi suffered a small knock against Middlesbrough in midweek

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Divock Origi picked up a small knock in Liverpool’s 3-0 win at Middlesbrough on Wednesday night.

The Belgium international has been in impressive form in the Reds side in recent weeks after the striker was drafted in to replace Philippe Coutinho following the Brazilian’s serious ankle injury.

Origi has scored five times in five games in all competitions since being introduced to Klopp’s starting line-up to provide some attacking thrust to the Liverpool side.

The 21-year-old striker scored in the second half of Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium after Adam Lallana teed up the Belgian forward.

However, Origi was taken off in the closing moments of the Premier League clash ahead of Liverpool’s home fixture against Everton in the Merseyside derby on Monday night.

Speaking at his post-match media conference following Liverpool’s 3-0 win at Middlesbrough, Klopp provided an update on Origi’s fitness ahead of the visit of Everton next week.

“I don’t think [he is injured], no. A little knock and a little bit of pain. We wanted to change Sadio but then Divock was on the floor,” Klopp said.

Origi agreed a deal to join Liverpool from Lille in 2014.
