Twitter was sent into meltdown after Divock Origi doubled Liverpool’s lead against Bournemouth with a sensational goal after just 22 minutes.
Jurgen Klopp’s side suffered a late 4-3 defeat against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday lunch-time despite taking an early 2-0 lead.
Origi rounded the keeper before producing a stunning strike from an acute angle to score Liverpool’s second goal, just minutes after Sadio Mane had given his side the lead.
It was Origi’s third goal in as many games after netting in the 2-0 victories against Sunderland and Leeds United last week.
The 21-year-old made his first Premier League start of the season and capped it off with a stunning goal despite looking a little lack-lustre for most of the opening 45 minutes.
It was his fifth goal of the season in 15 appearances in all competitions and the striker has been in excellent goal-scoring form in recent weeks.
Origi was expected to lead the line for Liverpool after Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge were ruled out through injury and he could be given further opportunities when Mane departs on international duty in January.
The striker was a key member of the squad last season, scoring during both legs of the Europa League quarter-final victory against Borussia Dortmund before appearing in the final against Seville.
Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:
Origi misses a tap in but makes an impossible angle. Alright. #YNWA

Neat I associate with a slotted finish after a good move. This deserves a better description than 'neat'. It's excellent
