The forward's first goal for the club came in the second half of the Reds' 2-0 win over Everton at Anfield on Monday night, doubling the lead following a Mohamed Salah opener.
The special moment arrived on his seventh outing for his new club, as he and his teammates secured an important set of three points in the Premier League.
Offering his reaction, Gakpo said: "It feels amazing to get my first goal in this game – also an important one. I'm really happy.
"It was amazing. Obviously for a striker it's always nice to score and then also in a derby is a really great feeling.
"It's always difficult to come out of the dressing room, and if we start off with a goal, that's amazing.
"It was a good pressing situation from us – Robbo [with a] good one-two with Hendo, Mo on the ball, a good cross, little deflected, but I was there at the second post."
