The Belgian forward will return soon enough, though, with Lijnders saying that after the Cardiff FA Cup clash we might see him back:

Anfield Watch Verdict
It's a little while yet before we'll see Origi again, but not too long.
He would have played a fair bit this month with AFCON going on but that is the way it goes, unfortunately for him.
Hopefully, though, he can still play a part in the final months of the campaign.
