After 75 minutes of frustration, Liverpool have taken a 1-0 lead over Sunderland at Anfield thanks to Divock Origi.
The Belgian came on as a first half substitute when Philippe Coutinho was stretchered off with an apparent lower-body injury. With so many chances gone begging, the breakthrough finally came with 15 minutes to play.

It’s been a frustrating day for the Reds but they now have a late lead at home. Can they hang on for a vital three points?
