Origi rallies Liverpool for Premier League clash at Boro after frustrating draw with Hammers

Divock Origi

Divock Origi has urged his Liverpool team-mates to discard the frustration of throwing away the chance of three points with a win over West ham and to focus on the positive.

Origi scored to level in the 2-2 draw with the Hammers at Anfield yesterday in the Premier league but it was a game that manager Jurgen Klopp was desperate to win to help the Reds in the top flight crown race.

The Merseysiders looked to be coasting after taking the lead through Adam Lallana after just five minutes of the encounter but the Londoners led 2-1 at the break through goals from Dimitri Payet and Michail Antonio

Origi made it 2-2 three minutes after the restart with a tap-in following a mistake by West Ham keeper Darren Randolph.

The draw comes a week after he Kop giants threw away a 3-1 lead at Bournemouth to eventually lose 4-3.

And Belgian hitman Origi says Liverpool must now set their sights on snatching a victory on Wednesday against Middlesbrough.

He said:

”It’s a busy period so for us it’s good that you can concentrate on the next game and we want to win, for sure. The season is long and in the Premier League anything can happen, as you’ve seen before.”

“We don’t lose hope, we just use this to come back stronger and I’m sure we will. The most important thing is to cool down and we will evaluate the game with the staff.”

“There are points that we have to work on but you just have to use the experience to come back stronger. We are all disappointed, we wanted to win. They were in front and we came back but maybe it was a little bit too late.”

“In the end, we showed that we wanted to win and we missed a couple of chances but next time I think we have to focus more and choose our moments to press and maybe luck will be on our side.”
