Jürgen Klopp has rebuilt a formidable Liverpool unit with less time and money than Chelsea took to squander £1bn on a collection of individuals under Todd Boehly. Contrasting approaches and rewards collided at Anfield where a homegrown 20‑year‑old full‑back, Conor Bradley, dismantled Mauricio Pochettino’s strangers on a statement night for the Premier League leaders.
Bradley was inspired, the Kop singing his name throughout, as Klopp’s team toyed with their Carabao Cup final opponents a month before their Wembley date. Liverpool can count down the days until they meet again. Chelsea will be already dreading the reunion.
