Liverpool defender Conor Bradley has been left out of the team to face Arsenal as he mourns the death of his father, Joe, who passed away at the age of 58 after a long-term illness. The club expressed their deep sadness and urged that the family’s privacy be respected during this difficult time. Bradley had an outstanding performance in his second Premier League start for Liverpool against Chelsea but has been excluded from the squad entirely for the Arsenal match. Manager Jurgen Klopp has allowed Bradley to be with his family and emphasized the importance of supporting him during this period.
Klopp praised Bradley’s performance against Chelsea and described him as a ‘wonderful kid’, acknowledging his contribution to the team. Trent Alexander-Arnold has replaced Bradley in the lineup to face Arsenal. A victory over Arsenal will potentially narrow the gap between Liverpool and the Gunners in the Premier League title race.
