The 24-year-old is set to make only his fourth league start of the season at Selhurst Park. We really need him to step up in a what is massive game against Crystal Palace.

Our win over Manchester City means nothing if we cannot cement the league lead by following up with another win on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side also have the chance to extend our unbeaten to 30 games and join an exclusive group of Premier League clubs to achieve this feat.

The Belgian striker is yet to fulfil is potential in a Liverpool shirt maybe now is the time to do so.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is currently knocking of the door for first-team football every time he plays. Origi should be doing the same, playing well, scoring goals and keeping our starting strikers on their toes.

Right now, Origi is best known for his antics from the bench. Before long that’s all he be known for if he’s not careful.

A impressive performance against Crystal Palace from the start will certainly help put an end to his super sub tag.

The winter window is just around the corner. Make no mistake the Liverpool bosses are considering dipping into the market.

Origi must perform this weekend to let Klopp know he is the man we can rely on when we need him during the Premier League run-in.
