Liverpool vs Nottingham Forest LIVE! Premier League match stream, latest team news, lineups, TV, prediction

Liverpool vs Nottingham Forest LIVE! The Reds are aiming for their third consecutive victory as they host Forest at Anfield. Following a hard-fought win in the Merseyside derby and a routine triumph over Toulouse, Liverpool has the chance to move above Man City into third place in the Premier League with a win before the Manchester derby later in the day.

However, there is a cloud of concern over the game due to the kidnapping of Luis Diaz’s parents in Colombia. His father remains missing, and it is unlikely that Diaz will feature in today’s match.

On the other hand, Nottingham Forest has been going through a tough period, having not won a game since early September. They are currently in 15th place in the league. It has been over four decades since Forest last won at Anfield.

Steve Cooper on Chris Wood injury

13:23, Alex Young

“Unfortunately, Woody sustained a hamstring injury and will be out for a while. We don’t have a recognized striker in the starting XI, which is not ideal in terms of attacking options.”

13:16, Alex Young

Darwin Nunez retains his starting spot, while Luis Diaz is not involved today. Youngsters Luke Chambers and James McConnell are on the bench for Liverpool.

There are two changes for Forest as Moussa Niakhate and Ola Aina come in.

Jurgen Klopp on Luis Diaz

Here’s how Liverpool’s lineup looks.

Team news will be announced shortly. Has Darwin Nunez done enough to earn another start?

‘Salah has evolved’

12:34, Alex Young

According to Jurgen Klopp, Mohamed Salah’s role at Liverpool has significantly evolved.

Salah scored his 43rd goal in Europe for Liverpool in the 5-1 win over Toulouse in the Europa League, making him the highest-scoring player for an English club. He has nine goals and four assists in all competitions this season.

Klopp explained how Salah transformed from a quick winger to a clever space interpreter who benefits his teammates. “The young Mo was a super-fast player who could make runs behind… Here, from the first day, he had to do different things. And he adapted extremely well,” Klopp told reporters.

“The playmaker in that front row was probably more Bobby Firmino, setting things up, and you don’t need two players who are a bit deeper. It’s not that good because you need players in the box.”

“Now it’s slightly different, especially when Darwin Nunez plays. We have another speed player up there. So Mo’s position has changed, and he is smart enough to adapt to all these different things.” [object Object] (Getty Images)

Luis Diaz latest

12:21, Alex Young

Liverpool has confirmed an “ongoing situation involving the family of Luis Diaz” following reports that his parents were kidnapped in Colombia. Diaz’s mother has been rescued, but his father is still missing.

“Liverpool Football Club can confirm it is aware of an ongoing situation involving the family of Luis Diaz in Colombia,” read a club statement.

“It is our fervent hope that the matter is resolved safely and as soon as possible. In the meantime, the player’s well-being will continue to be our immediate priority.”

Forest team news

12:10, Alex Young

Nottingham Forest is unsure if winger Anthony Elanga will be able to play due to illness.

There are also several injuries, with Taiwo Awoniyi, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Danilo, and Gonzalo Montiel all sidelined.

Liverpool’s only defeat this season came against Tottenham. With their attacking prowess, Liverpool’s forwards can cause significant problems for the Forest defense. Without Awoniyi, Forest’s task becomes even simpler for the Liverpool defense.

Liverpool team news

11:43, Alex Young

There are doubts about whether Luis Diaz will be involved in today’s match. Liverpool is supporting Diaz following the “ongoing situation” with his family. Reports state that his parents were kidnapped on Saturday.

Colombian President Gustavo Petro announced on social media that Diaz’s mother has been found, but his father is still missing.

Curtis Jones is still unavailable due to his three-match suspension, and Andy Robertson is out for three months after shoulder surgery.

Without Robertson, Konstantinos Tsimikas is expected to start at left-back, while the rest of the XI is likely to remain unchanged.

Thiago Alcantara, Stefan Bajcetic, and Ben Doak are also unavailable. [object Object] (Getty Images)
