Just four points off fourth even after such a poor start to the season, Liverpool have got back on track and will look to make it four straight wins in all competitions at the City Ground.
Nottingham Forest have lost three of their five home league matches, and will remain in the relegation zone regardless of the result here.
Half Time/Full Time: Liverpool/Liverpool
Liverpool have rebuilt some confidence and look something like their old selves after wins over Manchester City and West Ham. The defence has kept consecutive clean sheets in a surprising turn of events, and they should simply have far too much quality for this Nottingham Forest team.
While Liverpool have scored just twice over their last two matches, they should be more successful in front of goal in this fixture. The visitors will look to start quickly and if they take an early lead, this could be a cruise.
Anytime Goalscorer: Darwin Nunez
Erling Haaland is the only player who can top Darwin Nunez’s expected goals per 90 in the Premier League. The Uruguayan scored an important goal in the week and looks primed for a productive goal-scoring run.
Averaging an outrageous 7.4 shots per 90 minutes, Nunez is getting plenty of chances in this Liverpool team, and should have a lot of good looks at goal against a Forest defence which has the joint-worst defensive record.
Total Cards: Over 3.5
Nottingham Forest have received the most cards in the Premier League (30). Their average is almost at this over on its own, and this fixture is prime for them to receive a few more cautions with Liverpool set to dominate from start to finish.
With what should be a lively home crowd, Forest will be fired up for this match. Likely to go thundering into challenges, the hosts could find themselves in trouble with the referee.
Liverpool are also a candidate for a booking or two as they attempt to stop breaks.
