The Belgian forward came off the bench and within minutes bagged the Reds’ third goal in their 3-1 win over Everton on Saturday.
It was Origi’s 26th Premier League appearance of the campaign, but only seven of those have been from the start.
The 21-year-old has made it clear in recent weeks that he wants to be seen as the main man at Anfield, at a time where talk is turning to who manager Jurgen Klopp may look to bring in during the summer.
Now Origi has reiterated his desire to be seen as someone for the here and now, rather than tomorrow.
“I always said I want to be a top striker for this team and I feel that I can be, so I think I’m willing to prove on the pitch that I’m not an option for the future, but an option for today,” said Origi.
“The team comes first and I’m very happy to help the team and the supporters and the club, of course.”
Liverpool’s win, coupled with Manchester United’s inability to find a way past West Brom at Old Trafford, has the Merseysiders in pole position for a top four place.
And Origi is looking for Liverpool to put a run together between now and the end of the season, to ensue their seat at Europe’s top table next term.

Jurgen Klopp speaks after win over Everton
“I think this is a good start to get the Champions League ticket,” Origi told Liverpool’s official website .
“We have to try to take maximum points and I think we have all the tools to do this,” he said.
“Everybody’s very hungry and we have one goal in common, and that’s to finish in the highest spot possible in the league. We’re on a good way and we have to continue.”
