Match Preview: Liverpool, and Nottingham Forest Meet at Anfield For EPL Clash

29th October 2023

Liverpool and Nottingham Forest meet on the pitch today, October 29th, for an important Premier League battle. The Reds are coming off a 5-1 win vs.Toulouse in Europa League play while Forrest battled to a 2-2 draw with Luton Town in their last match.

Drawing On Success

Getting against Nottingham Forest will not be easy. They have 4 draws out of 9 matches this season which has kept them above the relegation line thus far. Forest are led by a pair of former Liverpool players in Taiwo Awoniyi who scored in the matchup last year and leads the club with 3 goals so far this season. The second is former Liverpool striker who had 41 career goals for Liverpool from 2014 through . American goalkeeper Matt Turner has also been solid between the pipes making 28 saves and posting two clean sheets in 10 starts.

Shining Salah

Mohamed Salah has been in good form as of late. After scoring in stoppage time vs Toulouse, The Egyptian King now holds the record for the most goals scored (43) by a player on an English club in European Competition. Salah is also just 5 goals from 200 in his Liverpool career. He has 9 goals in 12 matches played across all competitions this season.

Injury Update

Liverpool have kept winning despite injuries to key players. Andy Robertson is expected to miss a significant amount of time due to shoulder surgery Thiago is still working his way back from a hip injury while Curtis Jones will serve the final game of a three-game red card ban.

For Nottingham Forest, manager Steve Cooper will be without the services of Gonzalo Montiel, Nuno Tavares, Danilo and Felipe

LFC Globe Verdict

This match should be a fun one. Not only will we get to see some familiar faces in Taiwo Awoniyi and Divock Origi, but Liverpool are playing well and Salah is in top form which always spells trouble for opponents. Forest has a knack for earning draws so I think it's important to get a goal early and keep the pressure on. If they can do that, I think it's a daily comfortable 3-1 win.
