News From Liverpool: Cody Gakpo savours first “one under the Anfield lights” but plenty to “improve”

After being cleared to train and play earlier in the week, Gakpo made his debut at the first opportunity, named in Jurgen Klopps strong starting lineup.

The Dutchman showed promising signs on the left of the attack for over an hour, linking well with Andy Robertson but it was not quite the night for the new signing to show off.

Nevertheless, Gakpo savoured his first time under the Anfield lights and is now looking forward to helping the team in the coming weeks and months after another turbulent game.

Really great atmosphere. For my own game, I think I showed some good moments and some sloppy moments, Gakpo reflected on the night with LFCTV.

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 youre playing games, so Im looking forward [to more].
