​Liverpool forward Divock Origi has named his late winner against Everton in December 2018 as his favourite goal he has ever scored for the club.


That Merseyside derby looked to be ending in a stalemate, only for a late Jordan Pickford error to gift Origi with a point-blank header in the 96th minute to earn all three points for Jürgen Klopp's side.

That was hardly the only impactful goal which ​Origi has scored in his career, but speaking to ​The Telegraph, the Belgian confessed that his strike against ​Everton is the one which fans tend to speak about the most.


“Definitely the Everton one - minute 90 plus six,” he said. “I remember going into the airport in Manchester. There was an Everton fan on border control and he said to me, 'I’m not going to let you in.'


“I was like: 'What?' It was all good, friendly banter. It’s the goal they speak about most in the city. It’s amazing. I love it. It shows the heart of the supporters. It’s ​Liverpool, you know.” 


It was then put to Origi that perhaps his strike in the ​Champions League semi-final against ​Barcelona was the most important goal from his time with the Reds.


Trailing 3-0 from the first leg, Liverpool needed to win by four to make it through to the next round, and it was Origi who bagged his side's fourth following that corner from ​Trent Alexander-Arnold.


Despite it being one of his career highlights, Origi confessed that he actually does not like to replay footage of the goal.

“I see it on Instagram,” he revealed. “I like to visualise it. If I want to relive something, I close my eyes, go in silence and I can see it again. People ask me about my favourite goal and I say it is not easy to choose. The derby goal was a very different emotion than scoring in the final. I put it in a bank of experience.


“More and more I realise how grateful I am to be in such a team in such an era. Maybe at the end of my career I can say I shone my best light to help this team.”
