Jurgen Klopp

was pleased with

Divock Origi

’s performance in their 2-0 victory over

Everton

on Sunday.

The Belgian came off the bench as a substitute in the 60th minute of the game. Andy Robertson netted Liverpool’s first goal two minutes after that and broke the deadlock. The Belgium striker then sealed his side’s victory with a goal in the 85th minute.

Origi has found the target six times in battles against Everton and helped Liverpool narrow the gap with league leaders

Klopp praised the striker’s performance when talking to Sky Sports after the match.

"[Origi] is a world-class striker,"

he said. "

He's our best finisher, definitely – he always was, and everybody [at Liverpool] would say the same. 

"You see him do these kinds of things in training, and then he's not in the squad because of the quality of other players. It's really hard. 

"We will never miss a player like him because if he leaves, he will explode wherever he goes… he is a legend and will stay a legend forever. 

"He doesn't always make the squad which is ridiculous, but he is there when we need him every time… everything that we did in the second half, without Divock, wouldn't have happened."

The Reds boss then talked about Liverpool squad’s depth.

"The group lives because of the boys that don't always play – they are the strongest players ever,"

he added.

"[Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain, [Harvey] Elliot, [Takumi] Minamino, even Rhys Williams. They are in great shape, but the way they behave is why we do these kinds of things."
