“Give Origi a statue”, “No better way to win a derby” – Liverpool fans react to dramatic win over Everton

Divock Origi was the hero for Liverpool after heading home in the dying stages to seal a dramatic 1-0 win over Everton on Sunday, leaving supporters ecstatic.

Liverpool 1-0 Everton

Premier League, Anfield
December 2, 2018

Goals: Origi 90+5′

A return to Premier League action saw Liverpool come to blows with fierce rivals Everton in a bid to keep Man City within striking range at the top of the table.

And they managed to do so despite leaving it until the last moment to seal a crucial three points.

An end-to-end first half saw a plethora of opportunities fall to both sides to hit the front, but top-notch saves and a lack of composure with the final ball ensured the deadlock remained heading into the break.

With frustration starting to boil over as the scores remained level and the minutes ticked by it was not until Divock Origi capitalised on a defensive lapse to send Anfield into utter euphoria.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.

“Bobby Firmino, would love to have the real you back sometime.”

Herb on the forums.

“Why is Klopp so stubborn in keeping Firmino in the No. 10 role? Firmino isn’t a No. 10 he is a striker, without him in the box Robbo and TAA can’t whip any crosses in as there is no one to attack it. Put Bobby upfront, Salah out to the right and Shaqiri in the No. 10 role.”

Fabinho has looked excellent and hopefully he’ll get a run in the side.”
