WHAT HAPPENED? The current Liverpool attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo started playing together only in January after the Dutch attacker completed his move to Anfield from PSV Eindhoven.
The 23-year-old forward believes that the players upfront are still getting to know each other and with time their performances will improve.

WHAT THEY SAID: As reported by the Liverpool Echo, Gakpo said: "Playing with guys like Salah and Nunez is fantastic, of course. It's great to try to score goals together. I think we're starting to get used to each other more and more every day. So, I think we're going to be all right.
"We're getting more and more in sync. That's just something that takes time. Normally it all happens during pre-season when you have time to get to know each other, but in this case we didn't have that time so things went a bit differently than usual."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Gakpo, who had previously been subject to interest from United, eventually joined Liverpool in the January window. It took him seven matches to score his maiden Reds goal and so far he has netted twice in 11 matches for the club.
Liverpool's top two goal scorers this season are Salah and Nunez who have scored 20 and 12 times respectively.
