Liverpool have looked back to their best this term after a shaky 2022-23 campaign. Jurgen Klopp’s side currently sit fourth in the league standings, as they have won six of their opening nine matches. The Reds currently sit just three points off the top of the standings, and they could end the round in top spot if results go their way this weekend.
Nottingham Forest’s recent form would be a slight concern, as Steve Cooper’s side has gone five without a victory in the Premier League. However, they have gone three without defeat after being held to three successive draws in their most recent matches.
Liverpool’s home record against Forest deserves all the respect this weekend, as they have gone 24 without a loss against their East Midlands rivals at Anfield. Forest’s last win in this exact fixture came in the form of a 2-0 win in February 1969. The Reds have scored 16 goals in their last four meetings with Forest at home.
Liverpool’s home record overall is exceptionally strong, as they have lost just once in 46 matches at Anfield. Forest’s run of three straight draws is their longest sequence since drawing four on the bounce in January 2016. Interestingly, Liverpool haven’t lost a home match against a team whose name starts with ‘N’ since being beaten 1-0 by Norwich in April 1994.
Liverpool vs Nottingham Forest Prediction
The trends speak for themselves this weekend, as Liverpool look very challenging to overlook. The Reds boast a dominant home record, and they have gone 24 matches without defeat against Forest at Anfield. Therefore, we will be siding with the home win.
