Bradley buzzing with Liverpool breakthrough

Conor Bradley is on a high. The 20-year-old defender stepped up when Trent Alexander-Arnold picked up an injury back in January and hasn’t looked back since.

He provided an assist on his full Premier League debut in the 4-0 victory at Bournemouth then went on to score in a man-of-the-match performance in the 4-1 win over Chelsea.

“To get out there playing for Liverpool is brilliant but to get my first goal and first couple of assists has been unreal,” he said. “It’s pretty special what’s happened and I just want to keep it going.”

“It was so special to make my Premier League debut – I don’t think I can actually put it into words.

“It’s what I had been waiting for for such a long time and I’ve been dreaming about for a long time, so to get that and to also assist in that game was brilliant, I was just buzzing.

Bradley took a short break from the game when his father Joe died in February, but he has returned as hungry as ever, helping the Reds lift the Carabao Cup at Wembley.

“It’s pretty mental all the trophies I’ve collected in the last couple of months but it’s been brilliant and I don’t think I could have dreamt of it going quite so well.

“But I want to keep it going, I want to keep working hard. I want to keep improving myself because I know there’s still a lot of improvement to be made.”

Bradly has been rewarded for all his hard work with a call-up to the Northern Ireland squad for their upcoming friendlies against Romania and Scotland.
