Conor Bradley’s layoff duration was discovered during an ankle injury examination.


With an ankle injury that required assistance to leave the field on Sunday, Conor Bradley will miss three weeks of play; however, his season will not end too soon.

Just moments after the second half began, the 20-year-old was pulled off the pitch due to self-harm from a tackle, adding even more suffering to Liverpool’s afternoon.

Bradley’s ankle injury didn’t seem to be improving at first, but Klopp said that it “settled quickly” in the aftermath.

And now, according to Sky Sports, the defender will be sidelined for “up to three weeks” following ankle tests that revealed the problem was not as serious as initially thought.

As the season draws to a close, Tottenham’s May 5 visit to Anfield will mark the third return in three weeks.
When that happens, there will only be two more league games left in the season (Aston Villa and Wolves), and adding more would require a huge turnaround at Atalanta.

Bradley’s injury is regrettable as he now has to sit out games along with Joel Matip (ACL), Thiago (hamstring), and Ben Doak (MCL).

Luckily, Klopp has been able to add several important players back to his roster, like as Trent Alexander-Arnold, who would have featured more versus Palace than he had planned.

The goal was probably to ease the vice captain back in, and at Atlanta, a crucial choice needs to be made over Joe Gomez’s starting position or Alexander-Arnold’s.
In his breakthrough season so far, Bradley has made 22 appearances, contributing six assists and one goal.

On Wednesday night, when Klopp addresses the media in Itlay, we anticipate hearing more from him.
