James Milner Funny Instagram Post On Sensational Divock Origi Goal For Liverpool

On a night when Liverpool were not at their best against Preston North End, Divock Origi scored a superb goal to secure a 2-0 victory at Deepdale. After the game, his teammate James Milner took to Instagram to discuss the Belgian's unbelievable strike.

Despite a disappointing first half where Liverpool could have found themselves trailing they eventually ran out winners and into the draw for the Carabao Cup quarter finals thanks to strikes from Takumi Minamino and Origi.

Remarkable Origi Goal

Liverpool's second goal in the match was extraordinary. After a scramble in the penalty area, the ball looped up behind Origi six yards from goal.

In what was a remarkable finish, the 26 year old reached out behind him and with the back of his heel lobbed it over Preston goalkeeper Declan Rudd.
