Liverpool fans have worshipped "Lord Divock Origi" after he scored yet another winning goal for the club.
Origi's 55th minute winner against AC Milan sealed all three points and secured a sixth win from six in the Champions League for the Reds.
Liverpool had already been confirmed as group winners prior to the match but came from behind to win 2-1 at the San Siro after falling behind in the first half.
Origi's strike was his second winning goal in four days after he rescued a 1-0 win away to Wolves on Saturday by scoring in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
Liverpool fans were quick to heap praise on their Belgian striker, with former defender Jamie Carragher leading the reaction to his goal by tweeting: "Lord Divock Origi."
One fan added: “Origi shows his quality again.”
Another supporter tweeted: “Origi’s superpower is turning up to big games.”
Origi has previous scoring in big matches, having scored in the semi-final and final during Liverpool's triumphant 2018/19 Champions League campaign.

A third Liverpool fan also called for Origi to get more minutes as they wrote: “Imagine how good Origi could be if he played every week. He’s lethal mate.”
Origi's goal in Milan was his fifth of the season, despite playing just 393 minutes and starting only four matches this season.
This means that the former Lille man has averaged a goal every 78 minutes so far this season.
Origi's form even has opposition fans in awe, with one West Ham United tweeting: “We seriously need to be looking at Origi."
Liverpool had fallen behind in Italy after England defender Fikayo Tomori volleyed home from a corner in the first half.
However, Mohamed Salah pulled Jurgen Klopp's side level before the interval as he netted his 20th goal of the season.
This allowed Origi to calmly nod the ball home after Mike Maignan had saved from Sadio Mane 10 minutes into the second half.
Liverpool were safely through as group winners prior to Tuesday's match but became the first English side to win all six of their group matches in Champions League history.
The Reds will be one of eight seeded sides in Monday's draw for the round of 16.
