Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns to report after their Europa League win against Toulouse, as Curtis Jones serves the last match of his domestic suspension.

Andrew Robertson (shoulder), Stefan Bajcetic (calf) and Thiago Alcantara (hip) remain absent.

Forest could be without Anthony Elanga after he missed training this week due to illness.

Gonzalo Montiel (calf), Felipe (knee), Nuno Tavares, Taiwo Awoniyi (both groin), Danilo, Callum Hudson-Odoi (both hamstring) and Divock Origi (hip) remain ruled out.

Stat Attack

  • Liverpool have lost just one of their last six league meetings against Forest (W3, D2, L1).
  • Forest have earned just one point in six Premier League visits to Anfield (D1, L5).
  • Both teams have scored in their last four meetings at Anfield, with Liverpool scoring 16 goals to Forest’s seven goals.
  • Joe Worrall was utilised as substitute for Forest in both meetings against Liverpool last season.
  • Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez has hit the woodwork on three occasions – more than any other Premier League player this season.
  • Willy Boly has made more clearances than any other Forest player with 42 clearances in eight league appearances.



Yet to either draw or lose at home this season, Liverpool can come into this game with huge belief after their best performance of the campaign against Toulouse, because their attacking play was just excellent amidst a moment of poor defending which denied them a clean sheet.

Forest meanwhile will be disappointed to have drawn against Luton because their attacking play was just brilliant if let down by poor finishing, so I would like to see them bring more of the same attitude here but tighten up after they defensively switched off and conceded two sloppy late goals.

That prospect is a huge ask at Anfield though because Liverpool are a difficult team to beat on Merseyside but both teams have a habit of scoring on this turf, so I expect another fierce battle but Jurgen Klopp’s Reds should have enough quality for the win.

Prediction: Liverpool 2-2 Nottingham Forest

Result: Liverpool 3-0 Nottingham Forest
