Divock Origi’s selfless display in Liverpool’s victory at West Bromwich Albion offers proof that the Belgian is developing as a striker, Jürgen Klopp feels.
The Reds’ No.27, who celebrated his 22nd birthday on Tuesday, led the line impressively against an experienced and well-drilled Baggies defence in a vital 1-0 win at The Hawthorns last Sunday.
Klopp praised Origi in the immediate aftermath of that match, and the boss was asked whether his performance shows his levels of consistency are improving ahead of this weekend’s clash with Crystal Palace at Melwood today.
“He turned 22 on Tuesday, so he’s still a young boy and yes, you can see it in the games,” Klopp told reporters.
