Liverpool will host Nottingham Forest in what promises to be an exciting Premier League encounter at Anfield.
Liverpool is on a high after securing a third consecutive win across all tournaments, including a 5-1 victory over Toulouse in the Europa League.
Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest is struggling to find form, having gone five Premier League games without a win.
Liverpool’s victory over Toulouse was a testament to the team’s determination and skill.
Despite Les Violets asking questions of Liverpool’s second-string side, the Reds were too strong for them.
With six goals scored, including strikes from Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota, Liverpool made it look easy.
Nottingham Forest, on the other hand, threw away a two-goal lead against Luton Town to draw 2-2 last weekend.
The team’s ongoing barren run has seen them go five Premier League games without a win, drawing each of their last three.
Liverpool will be without Andy Robertson, who underwent successful surgery on his dislocated shoulder and is expected to miss the remainder of 2023.
Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajcetic are also out due to injury, while Curtis Jones is serving the third and final game of his domestic suspension.
Nottingham Forest has eight concerns to manage, including the absence of City Ground hero Taiwo Awoniyi and striker Divock Origi.
Anthony Elanga is also a doubt due to illness.
Possible Starting Lineups
Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas;
Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Gravenberch;
Salah, Nunez, Diaz.
Aurier, Boly, Murillo, Toffolo;
Sangare, Mangala, Dominguez;
Gibbs-White, Wood, Elanga.
Liverpool’s impressive home record and recent form make them the favorites to win against Nottingham Forest.
While Forest will likely sit back and defend, Liverpool’s attacking prowess should see them secure a comfortable victory.
- We predict a 2-0 win for Liverpool.
