Liverpool vs Nottingham Forest
English Premier League
Date: 22 April 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).
Liverpool finally got back to winning ways after a five-game winless thread across competitions and they have done it in some style.
The Reds put six goals past relegation-threatened Leeds on Monday night at Elland Road, inflicting the toughest defeat in their history on the home patch for the Peacocks.
Cody Gakpo and substitute Darwin Nunez opened and closed the scoring on Monday, while the likes of Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah bagged two goals apiece in between.
Trent Alexander-Arnold had a fantastic game himself in the role of an inverted fullback. He delivered two assists on the occasion.
Liverpool are now nine points behind Newcastle United in fourth place and they need to win all the remaining fixtures (in what is a relatively easy schedule) to keep the hopes of the top-four finish alive.
The Reds will be massive favorites on Saturday afternoon when they host Nottingham Forest in Matchday No 32 at Anfield.
The visitors dropped into the red zone in the Premier League table after a thread of ten consecutive winless affairs.
Nottingham Forest have claimed just three points in the process. The latest failure came six days ago when they suffered a 0-2 loss to Manchester United at The City Ground.
The defeat marked the second straight game in which Steve Cooper’s men have failed to find the back of the net.
