Liverpool forward Divock Origi has admitted he’s missed playing at Anfield but hopes to get the nod to start against Manchester City.
The 20-year-old’s last appearance on home soil came in the victory over Leicester on Boxing Day but he was forced off with an injury just before the half time break.
Origi has not featured at Anfield since but is hoping that will change when Liverpool go in search of revenge after Sunday’s Capital One Cup final loss to City.
The Belgium international made his return to action against West Ham in February and has since come off the bench on four other occasions.
The former Lille man has scored twice in nine Premier League appearances since joining in the summer and he is looking to improve that record in the final 12 games of the campaign.
Origi said: “To be honest, I’ve missed Anfield because I like playing at home – there’s a good atmosphere.
“The last time against Leicester, there was a good atmosphere and we beat them. We played a big game. I came off with an injury, unfortunately, but I always enjoy playing there and I hope to score more goals at Anfield.
“I’m always hoping to play. Obviously the manager makes the choices, I just try to maximise and enjoy my game time, whoever the coach puts out; if it’s me, I’ll give 100 per cent and I’ll be very happy to play.”
