Liverpool’s freshman Cody Gakpo showed confidence. He said that the striker position makes his technical skills more perfect.
Liverpool will face Brighton and Hove Albion in the 4th round of the 2022-23 season English FA Cup held at the Amex Stadium in Brighton, England on the 29th at 10:30 pm (hereinafter Korean time).
This is the worst season. Liverpool fell to ninth place in the league with three consecutive draws (one draw, two losses). It is lower than the 8th place recorded in the 2015-16 season when manager Jurgen Klopp took over midway. In the FA Cup, after a rematch against Wolverhampton Wanderers, they won 1-0 and advanced to the next round.
The next opponent is formidable. It’s Brighton. Brighton is the opponent who completely defeated Liverpool 3-0 in the league on the 15th. As much as Brighton’s recent momentum has been good, Liverpool will have to do their best if they want to advance to the next round.
Liverpool expects the form of Gakpo to rise quickly. Gakpo entered Anfield through the transfer market this winter. In his previous team, PSV Eindhoven, he came out as a left winger, and in the Netherlands, he is a multi-resource who played as an attacking midfielder. At Liverpool, he is playing as a central striker in place of Roberto Firmino.
It still hasn’t melted completely. Unlike Eindhoven, where he recorded 13 goals and 15 assists in 20 games, Liverpool has yet to accumulate attack points. There is also a problem with adapting to the league, but it is also because the player is playing in a position unfamiliar to him.
안전놀이터 The shells were positive. “It’s part of football that sometimes things don’t go the way we want them to,” he said in an interview with the club itself. “If we keep improving and work hard, quality football will come out.” .
He predicted his performance in the striker position as well. Gakpo said, “(Central striker) is a little different from what I’m used to, but it’s an area where I can improve while digesting the role, and I want to show my qualities there. Playing there makes me more perfect as a technical player.” indicated
