Origi sidelined after knee operation

Origi suffered a hamstring injury against Leicester on Boxing Day

Origi suffered a hamstring injury against Leicester on Boxing Day

UNITED KINGDOM, January 12 – Liverpool striker Divock Origi has undergone minor knee operation and will not return to action this month.

The 20-year-old striker suffered a hamstring injury in the 1-0 Boxing Day victory over high-flying Leicester and had been expected to be back in training next week.

But the Belgium international has now had surgery to fix a long-standing issue with his knee.

Origi, who has scored four goals in 16 games in all competitions for the Reds, is expected to be sidelined for the next three to four weeks.

That leaves Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp with just two available striking options in Christian Benteke and youngster Jerome Sinclair, who scored in Friday’s 2-2 FA Cup draw with Exeter.

Daniel Sturridge is not yet ready to return from a hamstring strain sustained at Newcastle on December 6 and Danny Ings remains out for the season following cruciate knee ligament surgery.
