Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has hailed Divock Origi as a ‘legend’ after the forward scored the winner in The Reds’ 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

The Merseyside-based club had a largely frustrating night against Wolves at the Molineux Stadium. Liverpool missed a plethora of chances to clinch the game, and it appeared they would have to go home with a share of the spoils. However, Divock Origi emerged as a hero for Liverpool, netting an injury-time winner. The Belgian got on the end of a pass from Mohamed Salah in the 94th minute and found the back of the net. That sent The Reds atop the Premier League table.
