One of our best signing in years in terms of value for money and of the best signings anywhere this summer....seriously he seems to be in total command of everything he does on the pitch  ;D

Hopefully his attitude is rubbing off on others by now as well. Love the guy.

I've got a feeling that Origi is the real deal, from a couple of games I watched but mainly his interviews there seems to be something about him.

Nice to see him silencing the doubters. Ever since he played for Arsenal, you could see he was a formidable opponent.

The form he is in, you wouldnt bet against him excelling in midfield either.

Also must be awkward talking about their seasons at family gatherings...

I'm surprised noone on earth picked up on his funny  expression in midweek when he had a freekick given against him late on. Even Rooney looked and laughed. He literally cracked Rooney up.

I rewound it like 5 times. Couldn't stop laughing

Absolutely immense performance today, the guy is awesome and hilarious.
Would have no issues playing him DM either, give Lucas a rest.

Him and Sakho together really is a solid defence, Skrtel also had a great game.
Just love Toure's energy, enthusiasm, work rate, desire and ability... He's calm on the ball but a great footballer too.

Our best signing this summer for sure.

Did you see after Liverpool scored their third and Rogers called Toure for a quick celebration and he turned round babbling away like he was possesed. Hes the African Phil Cool of facial expressions.

It's early days but I really, really like him. I thought he'd be a decent free transfer signing for cup games and in times of injuries but goodness me, he's shown that he has so much still to offer as a first XI player. MOTM today, I thought.
