Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge took the plaudits with both goals as they reached the League Cup quarterfinals but the 2-1 home win over Tottenham Hotspur was another step forward for two other strikers also battling to become permanent starters.Although Origi showed a good understanding with Sturridge, who benefited from his tireless running and clever linkups, Klopp appears reluctant to pair them in the Premier League. Instead, he prefers the Brazilian Firmino as a sole striker or, as against Manchester United in last week's goalless draw at Anfield, positioned behind England forward Sturridge, with Origi primed to come off the bench.Among those options is Ings, who came on for Origi in the 68th minute for only his second appearance of the season, the other also coming in the League Cup against Derby County when Liverpool were already 3-0 up.At 24, the former Burnley striker is three years older than Origi and has struggled for game time since being injured in Klopp's first training session a year ago.
