This man somehow still lives off of last year's champions league hype and hands down rightfully so! However when it comes to gaming he really brings along nothing that makes me think "yeah, I 100% need exactly him and none other up front" - 4*4* is great, but he has no traits and his base stats are not the best at this stage in the game. Speaking of, base stats really are important! Of course you can boost anything with Chemistry Styles, but you can always feel it ingame if a player has good base card stats! So with Origi the problem is, that regarding his base stats he needs upgrades for pace, dribbling and shooting, which you can't give him for all, so you might want to focus on pace and dribbling, which makes an ENGINE the right choice. His base stats for shooting are good, but could be better regarding it's already July. One his best characteristics though, is his strength combined with his height and dribbling stats, this certainly gives him an advantage in tight spots or when being tackled.
After 5 games I can tell that you can definitely play him, but that there are way better options, even for that price. If you are looking for a great striker that brings back the life into your offense, don't do him. If you are a Liverpool fan or just have TAA and want to take some corners quickly, Origi is your man.
