Cody Gakpo, an attacker for Liverpool, is optimistic going into Sunday’s FA Cup match against Brighton.

At the beginning of the January transfer window, Liverpool announced the arrival of Gakpo, a forward for the Netherlands who had previously played for PSV Eindhoven.

The 23-year-old has started all four of the most recent contests. He scored three goals for the Netherlands at the World Cup. He has not yet scored a goal for his new team, though.

Liverpool will reportedly pay a first-time fee of £37 million ($45 million), and Gakpo will sign a contract through 2028.

“My own feeling is that everyone in the team has a lot of quality,” the Dutch forward told Liverpoolfc.com. “That is what I observe in training and during game phases.

“It’s also a part of football that things don’t always work out the way you want them to. We simply need to keep improving and working hard, and the quality will emerge.

“And then you’ll see the real Liverpool.”

In addition, he predicted that his team, the FA Cup favorites this year, would win again.

“I’ve won a few [trophies] back in the Netherlands,” he continued. “That’s what you train for your entire life, to win games and awards. I believe everyone here is motivated to win again, and I sense this in the group. Everyone is determined to win the next game, advance to the next round, and, of course, win the cup. We must be prepared to give our all.”

Along with discussing his decision to play as a striker for Liverpool rather than a winger, the 23-year-old spoke candidly.

“It’s a little different from what I’m used to. For the past three years, I’ve mostly played on the left side. Playing in the striker role is something I can improve on, and I want to demonstrate my abilities there. It’s a fantastic position, and playing there makes me a better technical player,” he added.
