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 “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.”
