On 9 November 2022, Bajcetic started his first game for Liverpool, in the home win against Derby County in the third round of the 2022–23 EFL Cup.  On 26 December, as a 79th-minute substitute, Bajcetic scored his first senior goal for Liverpool in their 3–1 victory away to Aston Villa in the 2022–23 Premier League. Aged 18 years, 2 months, and 4 days, he became the third youngest player to score for Liverpool in the Premier League, behind Michael Owen and Raheem Sterling, and the second youngest Spanish player to score in the Premier League, behind Cesc Fàbregas.

In January 2023, Bajcetic’s progress was rewarded with a new long-term contract at Anfield. On the field, he continued to progress, starting three consecutive Premier League games against Chelsea, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and local rivals Everton. On 16 February, he was voted January’s Player of the Month by fans. On 21 February, he became the youngest Liverpool player, aged 18 years and 122 days, to start in a Champions League knockout match, which ended in a 2–5 home defeat against Real Madrid.

On 16 March 2023, he announced he would miss the rest of the 2022–23 season with an adductor injury. As of May 2023, he is still out of first-team training, with manager Jürgen Klopp remaining hopeful that he will be back for the start of the 2023–24 season.

International career

Bajcetic is eligible to represent Spain and Serbia at international level. In 2021, he was called up to the Spain U18 for the Lafarge Foot Avenir tournament by manager Pablo Amo, appearing in all 3 matches as Spain won the tournament.
