Nottingham Forest entered the game in last place in the Premier League and desperately needed a win to change the course of their season.

The last time out, Steve Cooper’s team drew 0-0 with Brighton and Hove Albion, showing tenacity at the back to preserve a crucial clean sheet.

Liverpool, on the other hand, has shown tenacity as well over the past two games to eke out victories over West Ham United and Manchester City, helping them climb the ladder once again.

Prior to Darwin Nunez’s goal against the Hammers, Mohamed Salah produced the game’s lone goal in a tough struggle against City.

Jurgen Klopp wanted to see his squad establish some rhythm in the final third before the World Cup break, but they practically failed to prove a point today.

At the City Ground, there was no goal after the opening 45 minutes, with Virgil van Dijk having the best opportunity of the half, but he misdirected his free header.

Dean Henderson denied Fabio Carvalho from close range, and Jesse Lingard ought to have done far better with his opportunity to score, buthe sent a left-footed shot straight at Alisson.

Ten minutes into the second half, the Super Eagles attacker gave Nottingham Forest the lead as both teams labored in the final third.

The former Liverpool player was in the perfect position to score on the rebound from close range with a smooth finish.
