Needed at Anfield?
Liverpool summer signing Divock Origi scored his second Ligue 1 goal of the season on Sunday as Lille continued their unbeaten start to the domestic campaign with a 2-0 win over Nantes.
The 19-year-old Belgium international signed for the Reds in July for a transfer fee of £10m, before swiftly rejoining Lille on a season-long loan.
Origi is certainly physically strong enough to compete in the Premier League, but is he ready for England’s top flight? And did Liverpool make a mistake by allowing him to leave on loan straight away?
After all, in the absence of Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool looked rather toothless during Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa.
The Reds had 74 per cent of the possession at Anfield, but they only registered one shot on target in the whole game.
