Strange that the scorer of arguably Anfield's most famous goal should be close to slipping away almost unnoticed.

But then, for better or worse, Divock Origi has spent much of his Liverpool career defying convention.

Exactly two years have now passed since the Belgian sidefooted home after Trent Alexander-Arnold's quickly-taken corner had caught the Barcelona defence napping in their Champions League semi-final second leg.

Origi's second goal of the game, it completed a remarkable turnaround not only from Liverpool - who had lost the first leg 3-0 before winning the Anfield return 4-0 - but the player himself.

The forward had spent the previous season on loan at Wolfsburg and managed only 11 minutes of first-team action before coming off the bench to score a dramatic winner in the sixth minute of injury time against Everton in December 2018.

Even after that famous intervention, Origi made only three starts before the absences of Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah pressed him into action against Barcelona, just four days after another late winner from the bench at Newcastle United.

Clinching the European Cup with Liverpool's second goal in the final against Tottenham Hotspur cemented Origi's place in the Anfield annals and helped earn a new contract when just months earlier he appeared on his way.

True, the 26-year-old started the next season with a goal and assist in the opening night win over Norwich City, and ended up featuring in 28 of 38 league games as the Reds romped to their first title in 30 years.

Only seven outings, though, came from the start and he scored in only two more games, including a brace against his favourite opponents, Everton.

So to this term, with the arrival of Diogo Jota and added competition, at least before February, from Takumi Minamino limiting Origi's game time in the first half of the Premier League campaign to just 13 minutes over four outings.

After two starts in January, Origi has played for just 22 minutes since the home defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion at the start of February, with his only goal of the campaign coming in the 7-2 League Cup stroll at Lincoln City back in September.

An ongoing muscle complaint has ruled him out of the last seven games with the forward likely to remain sidelined for Saturday's visit of Southampton - against whom he scored his first Liverpool goals with a hat-trick in the League Cup win at St Mary's back in December 2015.

With 35 goals - and many of them memorable - and 14 assists in 157 games, Origi has by no means been a failure. His winner's medals in the Premier League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup are testament to that.

But every indication suggests that Liverpool have moved on from him during the past 18 months, and will strengthen their attacking options further in the coming months.

Having been linked with a departure during most transfer windows over the last five years, few would be surprised if this summer is the time the Belgian finally heads to pastures new.

Origi has had a Liverpool career like no other. And on the anniversary of his greatest moment, it seems a pity it may be ending in such understated fashion.
