Preston vs Liverpool: Origi scorpion-kick helps Liverpool reach Carabao Cup quarter-finals
Divock Origi’s audacious scorpion-kick helped Liverpool book their place in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals after seeing off Championship side Preston at Deepdale.
Jurgen Klopp made 11 changes to his Liverpool side following Sunday’s 5-0 win at Manchester United, and Preston passed up several good opportunities in the opening period.
Brad Potts’ effort, when put through on goal, was tipped over by Adrian before a flurry of chances in quick succession which saw Sean Maguire, Ryan Ledson and Potts all fail to convert.
But after Takumi Minamino volleyed home Neco Williams cross (62), Origi’s improvised finish with his back heel when airborne settled the contest (84) – with the draw taking place on Soccer AM from 10.30am on Saturday morning.
