Bradley was a surprise inclusion on the teamsheet considering Alexander-Arnold's return to fitness, but continued his run of fine form with a Man of the Match display that earned him a 10/10 in Anfield Watch's player ratings.
Speaking after the game, an emotional Bradley said the night felt like a dream after scoring his first senior goal for the Reds.
"It's a very proud moment, something I dreamed of for a long time," the Northern Ireland international said. "I feel like I'm in a dream. It's unbelievable.
"I just couldn't believe my goal went in. I didn't know what to do. I went over to the corner and did a knee slide. It was brilliant, so it was.
"It was unfortunate the way Trent got injured. I just had to try to take my chance. I feel I've done pretty well."
"I just feel like I'm in a dream!" ❤️
Conor Bradley talks through the emotions of scoring his first Liverpool goal 🙌

Standing alongside Bradley as he gave his post-match interview to TNT Sports was Dominik Szoboszlai, who benefitted from one of the youngsters assists by heading in Liverpool's third on the night.
Asked whether Alexander-Arnold needs to watch out, the Hungarian replied with a smile: "Yeah, Trent should take care of his position."
He added: "We need everybody, we have a lot of games. Trent got injured, unlucky, but without him we did very well, so hopefully nobody gets injured anymore."
The manager was also highly complimentary of Bradley — who now has four goal contributions in just two Premier League games this season — with Klopp naming his young right back as the reason why Liverpool didn't strengthen in the position last summer.
Also speaking to TNT Sports, he said: "He’s working hard, he’s a good footballer and helped us so much.
"Think back in the summer, I think there were quite a few people who said we need another right-back for different reasons.
"We really were very positive about Conor like we were about [Jarell] Quansah, I think a really big step made.
"That’s really, really important because with all the injuries we had, we cannot put a string of results together if these boys don’t show up."
