Does Conor Bradley’s ‘Magnificent’ Performance Pose a Headache for Jurgen Klopp After Liverpool’s Display?

Just prior to Trent Alexander-Arnold’s recent knee injury, there was extensive debate regarding his optimal position for Liverpool: at right-back or in midfield.

However, Conor Bradley’s emergence in Alexander-Arnold’s preferred right-back role may have decisively settled the discussion.

The 20-year-old Northern Ireland international has shown remarkable improvement in each outing this season, notably scoring his inaugural Liverpool goal and providing two assists in Wednesday’s 4-1 Premier League victory over Chelsea, as table-toppers.

 

Bradley’s performances undoubtedly present a dilemma for Reds manager Jurgen Klopp.

While Alexander-Arnold, once lauded as one of the world’s premier full-backs by the legendary Cafu, cannot be relegated to the bench, it would also seem unjust to exclude Bradley.

“He was absolutely magnificent,” praised former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler on TNT Sports.

 

“Every Liverpool player was superb, but that was an exceptional performance.

“The manager will undoubtedly face a quandary now because I’m not sure you can afford to leave him out of the side. His defensive prowess alone should make him a strong contender for any starting lineup.”
