Liverpool cult hero Divock Origi popped up with another late goal at Molyneux on Saturday.

His 94th minute strike ensured the Reds remain in touching distance at the top of the Premier League.

The Belgian striker’s winner was another in a memorable collection of iconic goals for Liverpool.

We look at his most important goals he has netted for the Reds:

5. Newcastle vs Liverpool (2018/19)

After a demoralising 3-0 defeat in Spain a few days earlier against Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final, the Reds had to pick themselves up and go again in the penultimate Premier League game of the season at Newcastle.

As the game was heading towards an entertaining 2-2 draw, Origi managed to latch onto an 86th minute free kick from Xherdan Shaqiri to make it 2-3 and keep them in contention for their first ever Premier League title heading into the final day.

The goal was one that could have been all so more important had Man City not pipped Jurgen Klopp’s side to the league a few days later.

  1. Wolves vs Liverpool (2020/21)

Next up is Origi’s most recent clutch moment for Liverpool.

After a Merseyside derby massacre of Everton just three days before at Goodison Park, it was vital the reds backed it up with another win in the Midlands against Wolves to keep their momentum going at the top of the Premier League heading into a busy Christmas period.

After a miss from six yards out from forward Diogo Jota, it looked inevitable that Liverpool were going to drop points.

However, Origi was there to save the day yet again and came off the bench to snatch a winner in the last minute of injury time to help his side overtake Chelsea who had dropped points just a few hours earlier in a fascinating title race.

3. Liverpool vs Everton (2018/19)

This goal is one that could easily be top of this list with the opposition making it all that bit sweeter.

With a forgettable Merseyside derby on the cards, up stepped Origi to secure his status as a Liverpool cult hero.

Time appeared to be up after Virgil Van Dijk sliced the ball in the final moments with it appearing to be heading over the bar, only for Everton keeper Jordan Pickford to fumble the ball onto the crossbar and Origi was in the right place to head home.

A goal that may be remembered as the most memorable in a Merseyside derby.

Jurgen Klopp’s crazy reaction, running onto the pitch and hugging Alisson Becker, tells you all you need to know about the importance of this goal.

  1. Tottenham vs Liverpool (Champions League Final) (2018/19)

Although this goal was not a last-minute winner, it was certainly one that will be remembered forever as it helped the Reds clinch their sixth European Cup.

The game itself was cagey with Liverpool leading Tottenham 1-0 for most of the game.

As the match went on, Liverpool’s lead was under threat with several chances for Tottenham. However, Origi was brought off the bench to do what he does best and stay composed with a tidy finish into the bottom corner.

The goal sent Liverpool fans mad in the Madrid as it confirmed Klopp’s first bit of silverware on Merseyside.

1.Liverpool vs Barcelona (Champions League Semi- final) (2018/19)

This goal will go down in Liverpool folklore.

Liverpool were not only heading into this match 3-0 down on aggregate, but two of their famous ‘front three’ were injured.

No Mohammed Salah and no Roberto Firmino was not an issue and they were already 3-0 up (3-3 on aggregate) when Trent Alexander Arnold used his initiative to take a quick corner. Origi latched onto it to fire home and send the Kop wild and help book Liverpool’s place in the Champions League Final.

Without this goal, things could have been a lot different and the season could have ended up trophy less with Klopp still searching for his first silverware at the club.
