The Merseysiders drew 2-2 and the winger failed to have an impact before being replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on 84 minutes.

The Netherlands international gave himself an honest assessment after the final whistle as he conceded he struggled at times against Julen Lopetegui’s side.

But the 23-year-old is confident that he will drastically improve in the next few matches with Liverpool, including the FA Cup replay with Wolves.

 Gakpo told Liverpoolfc.com: “Really great atmosphere.

“For my own game, I think I showed some good moments and some sloppy moments.

“So, I can also still improve on those points and keep working and try to help the team as much as I can.

“Of course, you learn the most when you’re playing games, so I’m looking forward [to more].”

Gakpo added: “I think we played in phases really good football but in the end, we didn’t score enough, so that’s a pity.

“But I think we showed what we could do, but we can still improve on some points and let’s work on that. I think we showed real team spirit at moments, so that’s good.

“I think we have to go there [Molineux] with great determination and just go for the win.”

Boss Jurgen Klopp was also honest about his new signing.

He told ITV: “He fitted into the game. It was not easy for a first step.

“We cannot expect it to be perfect, but he showed good signs. We have to get him in better positions but that will come no doubt.”
