Origi also scored twice in a memorable 4-0 win over Barcelona in the Champions League, before netting the second goal in the final over Tottenham.

Having now written his name into Liverpool folklore after his Champions League heroics, the club’s supporters were delighted with the announcement of his new deal on Twitter.
