Divock Origi believes Jurgen Klopp can lead Liverpool to victory over Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side have the belief to beat Manchester City this weekend, Divock Origi has told Goal.com.

The Merseyside outfit travel to the Etihad on Saturday hoping to secure a vital win against Manuel Pellegrini’s Premier League leaders.

City have lost just two of their 12 domestic fixtures this season and will be looking to keep pace with fellow table-toppers Arsenal, who travel to the Hawthorns to face West Bromwich Albion.

Liverpool are currently nine points off the pace but finally appear to have stability after firing Brendan Rodgers over a month ago.

The Reds have also been boosted by the returns of Daniel Sturridge and Christian Benteke in attack, and fellow forward Origi reckons that his side have every chance of claiming all three points if they stick to Klopp’s game plan.

Origi told Goal.com: “His instructions are very clear and he makes it easy to understand what he wants from us.

“He is always reminding us to play with a big heart and to enjoy the game, but we have to respect it too.

“The way the team played against Chelsea was good, and we can be much better. City have had a great start and [have] big players, but if we do what we know we can and play how the manager asks, we can get the result.”

The Belgian is yet to score in his eight appearances for Liverpool, but is confident the goals will come thanks to his intense training sessions.

Origi added: “I practice a lot. I put myself in a lot of scoring situations in training, and try to see where I’m going wrong or what small things can make a big difference.

“It’s better to work on fixing things rather than worrying. I get confidence when I’m learning, so that helps me stay positive when maybe things aren’t going my way.”
