Liverpool visited Wolves almost two weeks ago and they needed to take advantage of the slip up from then leaders Chelsea at West Ham United by winning the game to secure top spot. West Ham had edged Chelsea 3-2 at home in their London Derby clash thus paving the way for Liverpool to take top spot by winning their game against Wolves. Liverpool were made to work for the points by their hosts as they failed to break down the team from the Midlands until Origi came off to deliver the only goal of the game in the 94th minute off the assist from Mohamed Salah.

Origi has made 167 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions and the majority of this games were played as a substitute.
