Liverpool’s front three is relatively immovable, well it appeared to be anyway. The attacking trident that has served Jürgen Klopp so well has been rarely rotated in the past few years, only tinkered with out of necessity. One man has struggled to break into the lineup and his spot in the international side is at risk as a result. Liverpool should let Divock Origi leave in January, we owe it to him.
In recent years the front three has been unbreakable for Jürgen Klopp.
It is only this season that we may see the trio broken up or adjusted with Diogo Jota’s form impossible to ignore.
The Reds attacking lineup has proved impossible for Divock Origi to penetrate, whenever he’s been given a chance in the starting lineup he’s more often than not wasted his shot.
Divock Origi has struggled to get a game this season, he has struggled to make the match day squad on many occasions.

The Belgian has only made the one Champions League appearance, as well as a start in the EFL Cup.
The arrival of Diogo Jota has pushed him even further down the pecking order and he has now drifted into anonymity at the club.
Reports in Belgium have suggested that the striker’s lack of game time could cost him his place in the national side for the Euros in the summer.
Liverpool should let Origi leave
Given that he isn’t getting any game time, Liverpool should let Divock Origi leave in January.
Whether it be on loan or permanently, the forward needs game time in order to progress in his career and to earn a spot in the Belgium squad for the Euros.
We owe it to him to let him pursue some first team minutes elsewhere, as Jürgen Klopp pointed out – Origi is a club legend due to the vital goals he has scored for the side.
We have plenty of young talent at the club who can step up into his role as fourth choice striker, Layton Stewart and Paul Glatzel both warrant game time in the future.
Fingers crossed Divvy can find a new home, temporary or permanent, where he can showcase his abilities ahead of the summer.
