    Liverpool are gearing up for their Premier League match against Nottingham Forest as they attempt to close the gap on first-place Tottenham.

    Liverpool vs Nottingham Forest Preview: Team News, Probable Line-Up, Prediction

    Though Liverpool aren’t as good as they were a few years ago in the Premier League, they have started the season quite well, and Jurgen Klopp is undoubtedly benefiting from their easy victory in the Merseyside derby last weekend.

    All things considered, Liverpool have had a fantastic start to the league with nine games played. They have won six, drawn two, and lost only one, all thanks to Tottenham (and the PGMOL).

    In England’s top division, every game is as significant as the last, therefore it’s imperative that the Reds defeat Forest at Anfield to maintain pressure on those above them and to keep proving that Liverpool is a serious contender for the crown this year.

    Match Preview

    It is hardly surprising that Liverpool and Nottingham Forest have faced off 118 times in total as they both have extraordinarily rich footballing histories.

    Liverpool wins those matches the most, having won 58 of them, drawn 29, and lost the remaining 31.

    Following their promotion back to the English Premier League last season, Forest has faced the Reds twice. In October of last year, they memorably defeated Klopp’s team 1-0 at home, with former Red Taiwo Awoniyi scoring the game’s winning goal.

    Liverpool defeated Manchester United 3-2 at Anfield in April in a hard-fought rematch. Their pre-match form was much as expected.

    Forest is still in 15th place with 10 points, while Liverpool is in fourth place with 20 points. However, Forest has demonstrated that, when everything goes right, they have a tremendous offense, so the game is by no means over.

    Kostas Tsimikas is expected to continue at left back despite Andy Robertson’s injury from shoulder surgery, even though Luke Chambers made an impressive full debut in the Europa League midweek.

    Darwin Nunez is vying for a start after playing off the bench against Everton last weekend, but Curtis Jones is still suspended and both Thiago and Stefan Bajcetic are expected to miss out again.

    Divock Origi, who is out for Forest due to a groin injury, will not be making his Anfield comeback, and Taiwo Awoniyi may find the encounter to be too soon.

    With a hamstring injury, Callum Hudson-Odoi will be out until December, and even though Felipe and Nuno Tavares are getting closer to being fully recovered, they are expected to be unavailable once more.

    Probable Line-Up

    Liverpool – Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Mac Allister, Szoboszlai, Gravenberch; Salah, Nuñez, Diaz

    Nottingham Forest – Turner; Aurier, Boly, Murillo, Tavares; Sangare, Mangala, Dominguez; Gibbs-White, Hudson-Odoi; Awoniyi

    Liverpool vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

    With the Reds carrying a strong momentum into the match and Nottingham Forest struggling with injuries, Liverpool should be able to secure three more points at Anfield on Sunday.

    It should be a tough match, but Klopp’s team should just about win because Forest can be a difficult team to break down.

    Futballnews is predicting that Liverpool will overcome Nottingham Forest by 3 goals to 1.
