A compilation of Conor Bradley’s stunning performance against Chelsea has gone viral.
Liverpool hosted Chelsea at Anfield on Wednesday night as the Reds looked to regain their five-point lead at the top of the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp’s men were dominant from start to finish as goals from Diogo Jota, Bradley, Dominik Szoboszlai and Luis Diaz sealed a convincing 4-1 win. Christopher Nkunku was the scorer for the Blues.
On the night, every Liverpool player was performing at a high level but 20-year-old full-back Bradley was the pick of the bunch.
The Northern Irishman had the tough task of replacing Trent Alexander Arnold over the last few matches and did not look out of place at all.
Bradley assisted Jota’s goal before scoring his first-ever goal for the club with a fine finish into the bottom corner.
In the second half, Bradley played in a delicious cross for Szoboszlai to head home the third.
After the match, a compilation of the youngster’s performance went viral on social media.

Bradley managed a passing accuracy of 81%, created four chances and also won three out of three tackles.
Speaking after the match, Bradley said: “It’s a very proud moment, something I dreamed of for a long time. I feel like I’m in a dream. It’s unbelievable. I just couldn’t believe my goal went in.
“I didn’t know what to do. I went over to the corner and did a knee slide. It was brilliant, so it was.”
He continued: “It was unfortunate the way Trent got injured. I just had to try to take my chance. I feel I’ve done pretty well. [Klopp leaving was a] big shock to us all. It’s giving us extra motivation.”
Klopp was also full of praise when asked about Bradley, saying: “He’s a very serious young man and that was pretty special. What a wonderful kid he is. Outstanding finish, the whole game, the contribution, the involvement.”
Liverpool will now face another tough test this weekend as they travel to the Emirates Stadium to take on Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.
