Liverpool were seen to be sinking before Substitute, Origi was on hand to give the Merseyside outfit something to fight for in the Premier League as he scored an 86th-minute winner in a dramatic 3-2 victory at Newcastle United last night.
All Origi needed was a decisive touch as his fellow substitute Xherdan Shaqiri’s free-kick was enough to get the victory against resurgent Newcastle who is tutored by Former Liverpool manager, Rafa Benitez.
Manchester City would square up against Leicester City tomorrow night in the Monday Night Football show before the season comes to an end next Sunday.
The Reds’ dreams appeared to have slipped away after Salomon Rondon fired in Newcastle’s second equaliser in the 54th minute, which preceded a concerning head injury that forced Mohamed Salah off on a stretcher.
Virgil van Dijk and star man Salah had earlier scored either side of Christian Atsu’s close-range strike, but it was Origi who provided the match-winning moment in a see-sawing contest.
