Struggling Nottingham Forest, welcome fancied their opponents this Saturday
Steve Cooper’s men were held to a disappointing draw against Brighton & Hove Albion in their last fixture, he will be keen to improve on that in this game.
Also, With six defeats in the last eight matches, Steve Cooper’s Forest are justifiably in the bottom half of the table, very much looking at a relegation battle. With a nineteenth position in the league and 1 wins, 7 losses and 3 draws, they currently have six points in the League having won one game, drawn three meetings, and lost seven games.
Forest have won one game, drawn one game, and lost three fixtures of their five League matches at home this season.
Nottingham Forest will have secured 9 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
Forest’s squad has depth, but even so, Steve Cooper is likely to be missing five of they key players when they start Saturday’s game.
With the Premier League season well into its stride, Liverpool have managed to gain 16 points
Another victory would be a terrific achievement, but that is what Jurgen Klopp will be asking from his team, as they go into this game on the back of strong results after beating West Ham United 1-0 and Manchester City 1-0
Also, Liverpool keep finding the winning formula this season, that’s two in a row now. They currently stand seventh in the League, with 16 points for a total of 4 wins, 2 losses and 4 draws having won four meetings, drawn four matches, and lost two fixtures.
Liverpool have drawn two fixtures and lost two meetings of their four League matches away from home this season.
A victory for Liverpool would put them on 19 points.
Good Attacking Performance
Liverpool will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (22). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Roberto Firmino (6), Mohamed Salah (3), and Luis Diaz (3). Liverpool have conceded 12 goals.
It is likely that six key players will miss Saturday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool team.
