Divock Origi is determined to help Liverpool secure Champions League qualification after his goal sealed their 3-1 Merseyside derby win over Everton.
Origi took just three minutes to find the net after being introduced for the injured Sadio Mane early in the second half at Anfield on Saturday.
The Belgian’s strike, which saw him cut inside from the left and finish powerfully at the Kop end, ensured the Reds earned a deserved three points that lifted them into third place in the Premier League.
And, with just eight games remaining before the end of the season, Origi is eager for the team to build on their second derby win of the campaign and claim a top-four finish.
“I’m very happy. I think they’re always special games – from the moment I came to Liverpool I felt the gravity of this game and to be able to help the team win is important,” the No.27 told Liverpoolfc.com.
“Also, for the end of the season, it’s a very important win.
“It’s never easy [after an international break] because you go away with other circumstances, other teams, and then you have to come back and regroup.
