WATCH: Divock Origi puts Liverpool ahead of Sunderland

FINALLY!

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.

A curling effort from the left side of the box appeared to take a slight deflection off a Sunderland defender and found its way past the goalkeeper for the first goal of the match.

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?
