Liverpool will seek to make it three wins on the spin, when they welcome Nottingham Forest to Anfield on Sunday afternoon (14:00).

The Reds cruised to a 5-1 victory over Toulouse in the Europa League in midweek, while Forest are searching for their first win since the start of September.

Liverpool vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

  • Over 2.5 Liverpool goals @ 5/6
  • Mohamed Salah to score first @ 10/3

Team News

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Andy Robertson is set to miss the remainder of 2023, as he recovers from an operation on his dislocated shoulder, while Thiago Alcantara continues to recover from a hip problem and Curtis Jones will serve the third and final game of his suspension this weekend.

As for Forest, Danilo, Gonzalo Montiel, Felipe, and Callum Hudson-Odoi have been ruled out of contention but Taiwo Awoniyi could return from a groin injury.

Match Odds

Liverpool are heavy favourites at 2/7, while Forest are 10/1 to stun the Reds, and the draw can be backed at 9/2.

Jurgen Klopp’s side won this fixture 3-2 at Anfield last season, and a repeat of that scoreline is 20/1.

Liverpool to win to nil is priced up at 5/4, while both teams to score is 8/11.

Liverpool over 2.5 goals @ 5/6

Liverpool have an imperious record at home under Jurgen Klopp and have won all four of their Premier League games at home so far, scoring three or more in all but one of those at Anfield.

The Reds put five past Toulouse on Thursday night and they’ve only conceded three times in their past five home outings, across all competitions.

Forest have enjoyed some success on this season, particularly on their travels, beating Chelsea and causing some nervy moments for both Manchester United and Arsenal, however, they’re still susceptible to conceding, as the 2-2 draw with Luton Town last weekend demonstrates.

Liverpool have plenty of firepower and I struggle to see Forest keeping them quiet this weekend.

Mohamed Salah to score first @ 10/3

Pretty self-explanatory this pick, but I’ve opted for first goalscorer rather than anytime as the Egyptian is 8/11, which is too short for me.

Salah is flying, having already grabbed seven goals and four assists this season and the 31-year-old has been directly involved in 17 goals in his last 13 Premier League appearances at Anfield for Liverpool (14 goals, 3 assists), either scoring or assisting in every appearance.

I think 10/3 to be first goalscorer represents solid value for someone of Salah’s pedigree.
