Takumi Minamino has been reflecting on his performance after he made his Premier League debut for Liverpool on Thursday night, coming off the bench to replace the injured Sadio Mane.

The Japanese forward took just one shot on goal during his 57 minutes on the field, but completed over 94 per cent of his passes in what was a decent showing for a first appearance in a red shirt.

But Minamino says he has far from peaked and wants to improve his game, his understanding of Jurgen Klopp's tactics and his output over the coming weeks.

He told LiverpoolFC.com: "I feel the manager's trust in me, so I really want to repay him. Personally, I'm not satisfied with my own performance [at Wolves], so I want to meet the expectations of the people who support me.

"I was mentally ready to go and all I was thinking was how to fit into the team smoothly and get into the game. I don't feel any pressure. I'm not sure how much expectation has been put on me. I have nothing to lose."

Minamino added that he is comfortable playing on either side of the front three, and that he is looking forward to gaining an even better understanding alongside his teammates as Liverpool chase the Premier League title to add to their trophy haul.
