LIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Oct 6 – Liverpool forward Divock Origi says he is unconcerned about the lack of starts he has had this season.

The 21-year-old has only made five Premier League appearances this season, all coming from the substitutes’ bench, but did score in his two EFL Cup starts against Burton Albion and Derby County.

Last season, Origi scored 10 goals under new manager Jurgen Klopp, ending the 2015/16 campaign in fine form with five goals in the last six games.

Liverpool have enjoyed a superb start to the new Premier League season, with a 2-1 win against Swansea before the international break taking them within two points of leaders Manchester City.

For Origi, this success means that he may not see his name on the starting line-up any time soon.

“I want to play and be the decisive player that I was last season.” Origi told Belgian news site HLN.

“A manager never changes his winning team. It does not matter to me. Klopp believes in me and says I have to be patient.”
