Conor Bradley is confident Liverpool will be able to hit the ground running when they begin their Premier League campaign this weekend.

The Reds get the 2023-24 season under way against Mauricio Pochettino's Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

With a productive pre-season schedule completed, the squad are ready and excited for the return of the competitive action, according to Bradley.

"We're all really looking forward to it," the full-back told

"We want to make this a really good season, we want to get as many trophies under our belt as we can. We're all really looking forward to it.

"The new players are looking very sharp and the whole team is, to be fair. Especially in my first session back from [being] on loan, there was a massive difference to what I was used to. The lads are looking good and we're all really looking forward to it.

"It's a difficult start, to be fair, but it's one of those games where you just go and try to do the best you can. Hopefully we'll get the three points."

Bradley returned to Liverpool this summer after a hugely beneficial loan spell with Bolton Wanderers in 2022-23.

The Northern Ireland international is preparing hard for any opportunity given to him by Jürgen Klopp and looking to utilise the experience gathered during his time away from the Reds.

He continued: "Obviously I'm massively different, I feel like I've come on leaps and bounds since my loan, so it really helped me.

"It was a good year and I really enjoyed it. I'm really looking forward to this year and seeing what I can do.

"I think I did well [in pre-season]. Obviously it was different for me playing in a different position and inverted, so I really enjoyed it and it was good. I think I did well.

"I just want to play as many games as I can. And any time I do get the chance to play, I just want to try to do the best I can and hopefully that goes well for me."
