Liverpool find themselves in the heat of a late push for a top four finish to secure Champions League football next season. The Reds have two matches left that could define their season as they play Burnley and Crystal Palace on Wednesday and Sunday respectively. Jurgen Klopp will be hoping for more magic like Alisson Becker's late goal against West Brom. 

Divock Origi: Liverpool Cult Hero

Divock Origi has been the source of many iconic Liverpool moments.

One player who has been a source of magic and special moments for Liverpool is Divock Origi. The Belgian striker has become a cult hero among the Anfield faithful due to his large role in some of the club's best moments. Some of his important goals include the winning goal of the 2019 Champions League final, that winner against Everton and the memorable "corner taken quickly". 

Unfortunately, he has not been the spark that Jurgen Klopp needs him to be and his game time has suffered because of it. The former Lille man has featured just 17 times across all competitions with only nine of those appearances coming in the Premier League. In those 17 appearances, he has made the stat sheet just three times with one goals and two assists in his 536 minutes of play time.

Origi has failed to make the Belgium Euro squad

After a disappointing 20/21 Liverpool campaign, the 26 year-old has been left off of Belgium's 2020 EURO squad. Belgium manager Roberto Martinez opted to take strikers Michy Batshuayi, Romelu Lukaku and former Liverpool player Christian Benteke instead of Origi. 

After being left out, it could increase Origi's desire to seek out first team football with the striker being linked with several club's ahead of an Anfield exit.
