VIDEO: Divock Origi grabs excellent goal & assist for Lille

Liverpool striker Divock Origi put in a brilliant performance while out on loan at Lille this weekend.

On the same weekend that Liverpool struggled to score past Aston Villa in the Premier League, one of their strikers was having no such troubles elsewhere.

The Reds slumped to a 1-0 defeat against Aston Villa on Saturday, but the striker who they loaned this summer, Divock Origi, had a far more enjoyable time.

The youngster, who is at Lille this season, scored one and made one during Lille's 2-0 win over Nantes.

Origi is expected to have a bright future at Anfield, but if he keeps turning in performances like this, then Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers may rather regret loaning him out. 

The jet-heeled front-man was considered to be unlikely to have many first-team chances at Liverpool this season, but an injury to Daniel Sturridge may have made him a useful option for Rodgers to have around in their game against Villa.

Origi's next chance to impress for Lille will come against Montpellier, and if he keeps putting in performances of this class then Liverpool fans will be hugely excited by the potential he has.
