The Scout says Belgian can be the ideal final-day differential after his Liverpool team-mate is ruled out through injury

An injury to Roberto Firmino (£9.3m) could allow Divock Origi (£5.0m) to finish the Fantasy Premier League season in style.

Firmino has been ruled out of Liverpool’s home match with Wolverhampton Wanderers as they seek to overtake Manchester City in the title race.

As a result, Firmino is the fifth most-sold player in the Gameweek.

More than 65,000 managers have transferred him out ahead of Sunday’s 14:00 BST deadline.

Origi’s performance against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday suggests he can step up.

The Belgian started and scored twice to secure a place in next month’s final for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Open opponents

Liverpool should be full of confidence following that 4-0 win, and they can take further encouragement their weekend visitors’ away record.

Wolves arrive at Anfield having conceded in each of their last 14 away fixtures.

Priced at just £5.0m, Origi is owned by a mere 0.2 per cent of managers.

That makes him an ideal differential for those looking to overhaul their mini-league rivals in the final Gameweek.
