INTERVIEWCody Gakpo on versatility, respect for Salah and three more wins

Cody Gakpo is keen to do his part to help Liverpool one way or another as the Dutchman seeks three more wins to wrap up the 2022-23 season.
The January signing played a deeper role behind the front line in Saturday’s 1-0 Premier League win over Brentford, having featured most times in the Reds’ attack since his arrival.
A goal from Mohamed Salah in the first half was enough for a 1-0 result against the Bees and extended the team’s winning streak to six games. Gakpo greatly appreciates the positive charm of Jurgen Klopp’s men and his participation in it, but quickly grew concerned about continuing to capitalize on it.
“I really like to play and see where I can help the team the most,” the No.18 told after the final whistle at Anfield. “Sometimes it’s a little deeper in midfield and sometimes in the forward. I like playing with my teammates, and especially when you win it’s much more fun!”

He continued: “It’s a good feeling [to win six games in a row] but the season isn’t over yet.
“I think we just have to stay focused, keep working hard and try to win the last three as well. I’m very happy with the win and can’t wait for the next race”.
It was his 100th goal at Anfield, one that moved him level with Steven Gerrard for fifth place on the club’s all-time top goalscorers list with 186 and also made the number 11 the first Liverpool player to score in nine consecutive home appearances.
“Everyone might know Mo better than me, a great player and also a great person,” Gakpo said of his teammate. “When he beats the records, because I think he has broken two since I am here, we are all proud of him and we are lucky to have him here. He helps the team a lot with his goals and assists, so bad.”

On the other side of the field there was also a milestone for Alisson Becker, who reached 100 clean sheets for the Reds at the end of a hard competition with Brentford.
Saturday’s success was the third in L4 within a week and kept Liverpool’s momentum on the road for the last weeks of the season.
Gakpo added: “In the end it was done and I think it was the most important thing. It was a difficult game, but we stayed together, we worked very hard and we got together. “It’s a big win for us, we’re in a good period, we’ve won some games, so let’s keep it up.”
