Liverpool's Conor Bradley shines; Chelsea lacks leaders

Bradley is a symbol of this new Liverpool

The roar that greeted Cheap Conor Bradley Football Shirts goal in Liverpool's 4-1 win over Chelsea was that little bit louder than the rest. It was a reward for his fine form since coming into the side but it was also a reminder that Jurgen Klopp is building an exciting new team.

Bradley has looked assured defensively, combative in the tackle, impressive in possession and has now shown a finishing ability that Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez would envy. He is more than filling in for Trent Alexander-Arnold. He was a worthy player of the match.

With two assists as well as his goal, the Northern Ireland international has certainly won over the Anfield crowd - they chanted his name more than once on the night. He looks like a strength rather than a weakness, highlighting the depth in this squad now.

That gives Klopp options, the opportunity to deploy Alexander-Arnold in midfield rather than at right-back, for instance. Expect him to have a big impact this season and beyond. At a time when the focus is on Liverpool stories coming to an end, another is just beginning.

Chelsea's lack of leadership has never been more apparent

Once again, it's two steps forward, two steps back for Cheap Chelsea Soccer Jersey. After winning three in a row in the Premier League for the first time under Mauricio Pochettino, his side produced a woeful display at Anfield.

It was the same in November, when Cheap Chelsea Kids Football Kit followed up impressive results against Tottenham and Manchester City by getting thrashed at Newcastle.

But even more worrying than the inconsistency - or the one-sided result - was the nature of Chelsea's performance against Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp's side were predictably fired up in their first Premier League game since he announced his planned exit, but it seemingly caught Chelsea by surprise.

The visitors were second to everything. They continuously gave the ball away in dangerous areas. They lost their runners.

Investing in youth has had the predictable consequence of leaving Chelsea short of two vital components that make up successful teams - experience and leadership.

Never was it more apparent than on Wednesday night.
