Nottingham Forest Slay Liverpool

Nottingham Forest Slay Liverpool

Nottingham Forest 1 (Awoniyi)
Liverpool 0

An old enemy slays The Reds as Nottingham Forest beats Liverpool at their City Ground 1-0. Liverpool decimated with injuries to key players Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota, lost more key men before the game , as Thiago and Darwin Nunez succumbed to injury and sickness.

When Klopp has to dig this deep into his squad, they are always beatable due to the lack of depth and so it proved. Despite having 70% of the game, they created only 2 shots on target , 1 less than an improved Forest. A mistake by Joe Gomez was capitalised and former Liverpool striker Awoniyi, pouncing on the cross to head onto the post and then smashing home the rebound.

Liverpool created their best chances in the final minutes with Henderson outstandingly saving close range headers by Virgil Van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold. So Liverpool’s injury plagued topsy turvy season continues and getting Top 4 remains the first goal. Well done to Forest.
