Liverpool’s Conor Bradley Steps Up in Temporary Replacement for Injured Trent Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool

Not an easy task for Conor Bradley temporary replacement Trent Alexander-Arnold. Bradley also wants to try to look as good as possible.

Trent had to be absent for several weeks after suffering a knee injury in the FA Cup match against Arsenal last week. Losing Trent certainly hurts Liverpool remembering he is the life of the team’s game.

Trent has created 37 dangerous chances in the Premier League since last season, only behind Bruno Fernandes who did it 40 times. He is also the defender with the most goal involvements, namely 16.

You can imagine how lost Liverpool will be, who will pray all day long, so that Trent will not be absent for longer and that his injury can recover completely. On the one hand, Trent’s absence brings both a blessing and a test for young defender Conor Bradley.

Bradley inevitably had to fill the position left by Trent, because Joe Gomez, who is usually a right back, played in the left back position. Bradley proved that he can be relied on.

Playing his second match as a starter this season against Fulham in Leg I of the Carabao Cup Semifinals, Bradley played 90 minutes and won six successful tackles. He also made 21 duels, recovered the ball six times and completed 88 percent of his passes.

Liverpool won with a score of 2-1 and had trouble Fulham’s defense several times with passes from the right side.

“Yes, Trent is certainly one of the best right-backs in the world at the moment, if not the best player in the world, with the way he plays. His absence is a blow for us, but I just tried to do my best to replace him. Thank goodness we were able to win,” said Bradley on the club’s official website.

“It’s important for me to appear as I am. Of course I’m not Trent, I’m just trying to show my abilities and contribute to the team. Hopefully that will benefit the team.”

The 20 year old young man from Northern Ireland has appeared five times in all competitions this season.
