Liverpool vs Nottingham Forest Full Match Reports

Nottingham Forest’s quest for an elusive away league victory over Liverpool since 1969 remains unfulfilled as the hosts cruised to a 3-0 triumph, extending their impressive unbeaten run of 17 Premier League (PL) matches at home.

Confronting a Liverpool side brimming with confidence following a resounding win over Toulouse on Thursday, Forest adopted a compact defensive strategy to counter the home team’s array of attacking prowess. Steve Cooper would have been pleased with how his tactical blueprint initially frustrated Liverpool, with a tame Diogo Jota header and an ineffectual strike by Alexis Mac Allister representing the only notable chances in the first 20 minutes.

However, Forest’s well-devised game plan unraveled in the 31st minute when Murillo’s giveaway on the halfway line gifted possession to the hosts. This blunder enabled Liverpool to break away, with Darwin Núñez having his initial attempt saved, only for Jota to slot home the rebound into the open net.

With Forest’s brief resistance extinguished, Núñez swiftly doubled the Reds’ lead, tapping in a goal from Dominik Szoboszlai’s precise cutback after an incisive attacking sequence. Having conceded two goals in just four minutes, the Tricky Trees were fortunate not to let in a third before halftime, with Matt Turner making two impressive saves to thwart Ryan Gravenberch and Szoboszlai in quick succession.

As the match progressed beyond the hour mark, Forest had yet to trouble Alisson Becker, indicating their primary objective was damage limitation rather than attempting to mount a comeback. Although Liverpool had to exhibit patience, their pursuit of a third goal bore fruit in the 77th minute, thanks to a moment of erratic decision-making by Turner. An impulsive charge from the USA international saw him venture out of his box and misjudge a long ball over the top, providing Mohamed Salah with the straightforward task of rolling in his eighth league goal of the season.

Anthony Elanga came close to providing some consolation for the traveling Forest supporters, as his powerful shot rattled against the crossbar. On the other side of the pitch, Cody Gakpo had a late effort disallowed, but this canceled strike did little to dampen the atmosphere at Anfield as the hosts preserved their immaculate 100% home record. In contrast, the result extended Forest’s winless streak to six games.

Man of the Match: Darwin Núñez (Liverpool).
