Two minutes against Crystal Palace and fourteen minutes against West Ham. Behold, Origi’s Premier League appearances this season. The Red Devil is just about at the bottom of Jürgen Klopp’s list of attacking options. Behind Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Takumi Minamino.
The recently acquired Newcastle United would therefore see something in a loan from Origi, but they would not want to hear about that at Liverpool. Salah and Mané will miss a lot of matches this winter because of the Africa Cup, which is played between January 9 and February 6. However, the Egyptian and Senegalese will leave for their national teams at the end of December.
During that period, Liverpool will play six games, including the top match against Chelsea. There is a good chance that Origi will get a lot of playing minutes at Anfield.
