How Liverpool can line up with both Bradley and Trent: 2 options

Conor Bradley has arrived, ladies and gentlemen. The Northern Ireland international bagged two assists and a goal against Chelsea on top of a MOTM performance against Norwich, all in the space of four days.

But there is also Trent Alexander-Arnold returning to match fitness. The England international is one of the best players in the world and his creativity is unrivalled.

Can they play together? Yes. Here is how.

Jurgen Klopp already experimented with this in the Norwich game. Trent came on in the second half but Bradley stayed on the pitch, moving to the position of a right forward. He provided an assist to Gravenberch from there, also helping to cover for Trent defensively.

Here is what Liverpool's XI would look like with Trent as a right-back and Conor as a right-winger. Might work while Mo Salah is injured!

However, it doesn't look like a long-term solution. We love Bradley to bits but we're not playing him over Salah! In the future, we can definitely see Trent moving to a full-time midfield role with Conor in a traditional, non-hybrid, right-back position.

You might not remember it but Klopp has tried it as well. It happened in the pre-season. Against Greuter Furth, Bradley played at right-back (and seriously impressed) while Trent operated in a full midfield role.

What do you think about this? Do you have any other ideas on how Trent and Conor can play together? Tell us in the comments!
