            Nottingham Forest vs. Liverpool Prediction, Tips & Stats

            As the Premier League season marches on, Nottingham Forest are set to host Liverpool in what promises to be an intriguing encounter at the City Ground on Saturday. Both teams come into this match with contrasting fortunes, with Nottingham Forest battling relegation while Liverpool aim to continue their impressive form across multiple competitions.

            For Nottingham Forest, the season has been a challenging one, with the club currently fighting to secure their Premier League status for another season. Sitting in 17th place with 24 points, Forest know the importance of picking up points in their remaining fixtures. However, recent form has been less than ideal, with just one win in their last six league outings. Their most recent league fixture saw them suffer a disappointing 4-2 defeat away at Aston Villa, followed by a narrow 1-0 loss to Manchester United in the FA Cup 5th round.

            Defensively, Nottingham Forest have struggled this season, conceding the fourth-most goals in the league. With the threat of a potential points deduction looming due to breaching financial regulations, the club faces added pressure to secure points on the pitch. Striker Taiwo Awoniyi has been a bright spot in recent matches, contributing two goals in his last five appearances, but Forest will likely need a few more goals from him if they are to stave off the threat of relegation this season. The Forest defenders will also have to improve on all fronts, with the likes of Murillo and Felipe under intense scrutiny.

            On the other hand, Liverpool enter this fixture at the top of the Premier League table and with their sights set on multiple trophies this season. The Reds showcased their depth and resilience in the recent League Cup final, giving significant minutes to a number of inexperienced academy talents as a result of injury absences. Despite the makeshift lineup, Liverpool emerged victorious with a 1-0 win over Chelsea, highlighting the strength of character within the squad.

            The momentum carried into their FA Cup 5th clash against Southampton on Wednesday night, where Liverpool's young talents once again shone, securing a convincing 3-0 victory thanks to a brace from Jayden Danns alongside a debut goal for 18-year-old Lewis Koumas. With five consecutive wins in all competitions and just one loss in their last seventeen matches, Liverpool are in formidable form.

            Looking ahead to this encounter, Liverpool will aim to maintain their winning streak and continue their pursuit of four major trophies, a feat never before achieved by an English club. Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest will be eager to bounce back from recent setbacks and secure a positive result against the league leaders.

            In their previous meeting earlier this season, Liverpool comfortably defeated Nottingham Forest 3-0, but Forest will be hoping for a different outcome this time around on their home turf.

            For our Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the away side.

            Nottingham Forest Team News

            Forest are coming into this game without Ibrahim Sangare, Ola Aina, Willy Boly, Chris Wood and Nuno Tavares, who are all currently on the treatment table.

            The defence has been a massive issue for Forest both lately and for the majority of the season, but Nuno Santo is not big on rotation so there aren't many changes expected here. From the defeat to Manchester United in midweek, the recall of Callum Hudson-Odoi in place of Divock Origi is the only anticipated change.

            Liverpool Team News

            The Reds are coming into this one with the lengthiest and most significant injury list in the entire league with Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Wataru Endō, Curtis Jones, Ryan Gravenberch, Diogo Jota, Thiago Alcântara and Stefan Bajčetić all confirmed absentees for this game.

            On top of that, Dominik Szoboszlai, Mohamed Salah and Darwin Núñez are all major doubts, so Klopp will once again likely be forced to field a makeshift lineup. Jayden Danns could start up top after his brace in the FA Cup in midweek, while Joe Gomez is likely to start in defensive midfield alongside Alexis Mac Allister and Harvey Elliott.
