Form

Nottingham Forest’s Premier League status looks a lot more precarious following Everton’s successful appeal to get their points deduction reduced. Nottingham Forest are now 17th in the league with 24 points from 26 matches, just one position and four points above Luton Town in the drop zone having played one game more.

Nottingham Forest earned a huge 2-0 win over West Ham United in their most recent home league game but that remains their only win (within 90 minutes) in eleven matches in all competitions in 2024.

Liverpool sit at the Premier League’s summit with 60 points from their 26 matches so far. In the past week Liverpool have won the EFL Cup and booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-final and now turn their attention back to the Premier League.

Liverpool’s most recent league game produced a 4-1 win over Luton Town, despite trailing at half-time. Their last league game on the road saw them defeat Brentford by the same 4-1 scoreline. The Reds are now unbeaten in five matches in all competitions.

Key players still missing for Liverpool

This weekend’s team news for Liverpool is more about who isn’t playing than who is. Jurgen Klopp’s side are set to be without at least nine first team players. The likes of Mohamed Salah, Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Diogo Jota and Ryan Gravenberch for the trip to Nottingham Forest. The Reds are also sweating on the fitness of Darwin Nunez, Dominik Szoboszlai and Wataru Endo.

Betting tips

The continued absence of the likes of Salah and Jota really affects Liverpool as an attacking force. With Darwin Nunez also struggling, there will be a huge amount of responsibility on the shoulders of Luis Diaz and Cody Gakpo. Both Diaz and Gakpo have netted two goals in Liverpool’s last three league games and are solid value to score at any time on Saturday at 13/2 and 7/5 respectively.

Both teams have scored in each of the last five league games that Liverpool have been involved in whilst Nottingham Forest have scored exactly two goals in each of their past three games in the Premier League. Both teams to score is very generously priced at 4/7.
