Highlights Liverpool 3-0 Forest
Liverpool welcomes Nottingham Forest at home without the services of Luis Diaz. Coach Jurgen Kloop put Jota on the field from the start with Nunez and Salah. The home team rushed to attack right after the opening whistle. The away team also proactively defended in large numbers to limit the home team’s excitement.
The most active player on Liverpool’s side is Darwin Nunez. The Uruguayan striker continuously made smart runs to find scoring opportunities. Goalkeeper Turner had quite a hard time with his opponent’s number 9. In the 31st minute, Nunez ran down the right wing and fired a powerful shot. Turner pushed the ball out and Jota was there just in time to open the score.
A few minutes later, Liverpool had a similar attack, but this time the one who hit the bottom was Szboszlai and the one who finished from close range was Nunez to increase the score to 2-0 for the home team. In the remaining minutes of the first half, Nottingham Forest tried to find an equalizer but failed.
In the second half, Liverpool still maintained the pressure but was not as intense as the first half. Gradually, they held the ball deep to lure the opponent forward. Nottingham Forest “got caught in the trap” and had to pay the price in the 77th minute. The away team’s goalkeeper Turner made an unreasonable move out of the penalty area and Salah had one of the easiest goals of his career.
Nottingham Forest did not give up trying to find a goal, but Elanga hit the crossbar at close range. Minute 90+3, Gakpo kicked the opponent’s goal but it was not recognized. However, a 3-0 victory was more than enough for Liverpool.
