LIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Nov 29 – Jurgen Klopp insisted Divock Origi had no alternative but to get his head down during a tricky spell on the Liverpool periphery.

Origi’s patience was praised by his manager after a first Premier League goal since April 10 against Sunderland on Saturday having come off the bench to open the scoring.

The Belgian striker is set to lead the line on Tuesday night when Leeds arrive at Anfield in the EFL Cup after admitting that he has been left frustrated at being out of the side this season.

‘His attitude is good but there is no alternative to being patient – what would it be? Moan every day, to me and your team mates,’ Klopp said.

“That isn’t how it works. I know it’s not been the easiest time for him but it’s not like it’s been the worst either.

“We don’t have the kind of players who, if they’re not in the line up, don’ t have the same values. It’s a good group.”

Klopp has admitted he will be without injured duo Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana for the quarter-final.

The manager claimed in his pre-match press conference that the England internationals have yet to return to training, although Lallana isn’t expected to be far off regaining fitness.

Roberto Firmino also remains a doubt for the Reds after limping off with a tight calf on Saturday.

Klopp also reflected on the potential of the Liverpool youngsters in the squad following the debut of 17-year-old Ben Woodburn at Anfield on Saturday.

Klopp added: “There are a lot of very positive signs not only with him. We can speak about opportunities for young boys in our squad but sometimes you have to show it, not only for Ben but also the other young boys in the squad. To show there is a way for you, so long as you are here working hard, it can be positive.”

    From the death penalty to complete exoneration? Something smells off here.
