The Belgian striker has barely featured this season and his run-out in the second half on Sunday was just his second appearance of the campaign in all competitions.
However, he proved the hero when he directed home the winner in the 96th minute at Anfield after Virgil van Dijk’s effort had rebounded off of the crossbar.
The win was a crucial one as it allowed Liverpool FC to keep to within two points of Premier League leaders Manchester City after 14 games of the new campaign.
And speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Origi said: “It’s a special moment, I am enjoying it and it is special for the club and the city.
“It was just instinct, I just tried to be sharp.I believed in myself, it wasn’t easy and in football those moments keeps you stronger.”
Meanwhile, defender Van Dijk also expressed his delight at helping Liverpool FC to claim all three points.
Van Dijk added: “In the end it is such a great feeling to win the game, they were a good side today but we were better.
“I am very happy. Last minute winners are always better.”
Liverpool FC will now turn their attentions towards their Premier League trip to Burnley on Wednesday night as they look to keep up the pressure on Manchester City at the top of the table.
The Reds are still searching for their first piece of silverware under Jurgen Klopp.
