Conor Bradley mourns death of dad three days after starring against Chelsea


The Northern Ireland international scored his first Premier League goal against the Blues, searing down the right and delivering a superb finish into the bottom corner. He'd previously had a hand in Diogo Jota making it 1-0, and his cross led to Dominik Szoboszlai heading home late on.

Originally from Aghyaran in west Tyrone, Bradley became the first player born in his homeland to score for the Reds in more than 70 years. And his man-of-the-match display is perceived to have caused a major selection dilemma for Jurgen Klopp, with Trent Alexander-Arnold set to return imminently after injury.

Since the news, emssages have flooded in from Liverpool fans. @LFCLaurie wrote on social media: "I’m genuinely in shock at the Conor Bradley news. To go from the highest point in your life to one of the worst in just a few days. Life is far too cruel. Just heartbreaking. Thoughts are with him and his family."
